last monday, november 5th, marked the half-year point for mr. mickelsen and me. 6 months have very quickly come and gone. cross country moves, new homes, endless job interviews, new decisions, new adventures, more job interviews, unexpected challenges, exciting new opportunities. as we reach this milestone, i feel older, wiser, and so much more grateful for the wonderful man i married. no matter what life puts in our path, he makes it possible and he makes it better.
each week along the way, i have had every intention of getting back to posting here at the kb files. this week - in between two real-life jobs, laundry, making a pumpkin pie, and preparing for the in-laws to visit this weekend - i decided to sit down and make it happen.
while my main focus in life has shifted a bit from my design dreams to my practical reality, i will do my best to continue posting from time to time. more than anything, i feel as though i need this space to continue defining and developing my aesthetic. as grateful as i am for my jobs here in dc, every now and then i need a break from the working-girl life to just explore my creativity. that way, one day when my husband is done with law school and working and i am no longer required to be the sugar mama... my design skills will be all ready to go. that's the plan as of today, anyway.
anywho, in case you were wondering, here we are. we are alive, we are happy, and we are doing pretty great.
here's to our last 6 months and the years and years (and years!) to come.
bring. it. on.
