I’m Back!

Hi Gourmies!!

I am back after a month and a half hiatus. Sorry I left you all hanging for so long there, between my posts about “big news to come” and my approaching graduation I’m sure you were all a bit annoyed at my lack of updates (or not because I only have a handful of loyal readers whom half of are my friends+family… but we’ll ignore that). Although the length of my break was way too long, I have been waiting to tell you because I wanted to make sure all the details were concrete before saying a word. So without further ado here’s what has been happening in my life these past few months…

I celebrated/mourned my last day of work at FNM…

Started this program…

Graduated college…


Had the BEST weekend celebrating with family…
And friends…


Enjoyed the most amazing graduation present… a surprise trip to Wine Country with Katie and both of our Moms!…

Moved out of our beloved Chicago apartment that we had been living in for 2 years…

Said goodbye to my favorite city and all my best friends…

Packed up a U-Haul and drove cross country with Ethan…

Said hello to this city and moved into my tiny bedroom on the UWS… Queue music...

Enjoyed this view….

And plenty-a-roof top BBQs (with plenty more to come)….

Got back in touch with me through homemade (read: poor girl) meals…

Got accepted to the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts (class starts July 16th!)…

Started spending much more time with this guy….

And this girl…

And  this lady…

So, I think you can agree it’s been a crazy few months. I got a small part time gig baking cakes out of a neighbors apartment. I’m still waiting on news to see if I received a very much needed scholarship. Next week I head home to Boston for the 4th to then jetset off to Atlanta for some much needed family time.  I’m still adjusting to NYC living as well as life without the most amazing support system ever.. my friends.
All in all, it’s been a crazy road and things have certainly not even begun to settle down, but I know I’ve made the right decision moving here to pursue my dreams. So things can only get better… right?

Enjoy!
I’m Back!
