One Journey Ends as Another Begins

You may have noticed that things have been quiet around this blog for the past few months. I have popped in now and again but mostly, there haven’t been as frequent a posting here as I would have liked.

Yes, it’s because work is crazy. Yes, it’s because my husband finished his last semester in law school in December and is working on studying for the bar at the end of the month. Yes, it’s because we’re getting ready for him to start his big boy job in March.

But mostly? Every time I sat down to write something on here, it felt strange to be writing as an actor when I haven’t even been to an audition in over two years (or longer). I took a sabbatical back in 2010 and never really got back into it, given all the events at work and things going on in our lives.

I want to write again. I want to share the ridiculous stories that are a sometimes daily occurrence around me.

So I’m starting another journey as my husband ends his law school journey and goes into the real world. I’m ending this blog and starting again at That seems to be a better fit for this stage of our lives.

I hope that you’ll join me over there and follow along on my adventures!

Blogging Meets Real Life

I did something last week that I never thought I was going to do.

I met a blog friend. Sara from Running with the Law is a fellow Billiken so I knew we’d get along famously. We met for drinks after work – her from her law job and me from a crazy day of events.

I’m not quite sure what I expected but having drinks with Sara was the highlight of my week. I thought we’d have nothing to talk about, that it would get awkward but it absolutely didn’t! We chatted for a while and then she had to run home to say goodnight to her lovely little man, Mac. Seriously, how did she even steal a few minutes away from this little guy to hang out with me?

My first blog friend meet up went great, so here’s hoping to more of the same! Sara and I would love to get together with the husbands sometime – of course, we’re going to have to wait until AFTER the bar exam at the end of the month. That’s taking up quite a bit of Husband’s time, for some reason! Hehe.

In fact, I just bought tickets for the boy band concert in June. Me, NKOTB, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men – me and Sonya from A Day in the Life are gonna rock out in section 303 in the nosebleeds! I cannot WAIT to see this concert and meeting her for the first time to watch it is going to be even better.

I started this blog to connect with people. Even though I haven’t been able to update as much as I would like, I love that I have been able to take the online connection into the real world with friends like Sara and Sonya. It’s like we’ve known each other for years, because I’ve been reading their blogs almost daily for that long.

What a neat thing this internet is.
