Hey y'all just popping in the humblebrag that the reason for my intermittent blogging is that I have quite literally been running around the city from event to event in the last week with barely a moment to powder my nose or catch my breath. In the last few weeks I've gone to the Lyric Opera opening night, First Fridays at the Museum of Contemporary Art (to mingle with Girl Group Chicago and the beautiful Rose), a VIP meet-n-greet with Scott Aukerman at the Comedy Bang! Bang! live show, the Art Institute of Chicago 40th Anniversary of the Auxiliary Board After Party - and this Saturday night Andrew is taking me to the Joffrey Ballet.
Wait, did I say humblebrag? Sorry, I meant to say cultural explosion! It's hard not to feel like the luckiest duck for the amazing opportunities I've been handed, especially living in this wonderful city. This blog is a wonderful way to track my wanderings as well as reflect on how gosh darn amazing my life is right now. Here are some snaps from my climb up the event ladder...
But before we get too ahead of ourselves here, I'd like to share with you some other big news... drum roll please... that between hopping from event to event, I have decided to spend the next year focusing on my health and wellness! You must be scratching your head wondering how on earth is she doing this staying up late guzzling champagne? And that my friends is where I tell you that I have signed up to work out with a personal trainer for the next year. Once a week, learning new exercises and stretches, pushing myself to my limit and surpassing it. I signed up for a 5K yesterday, I've been cooking more, going to the gym on my lunch breaks and after work, and am really trying my darndest to be the happiest and healthiest version of myself I can be. This blog may or may not act as a way to reflect on my workouts and how I'm feeling as I go through this transformation. Oh, and to everyone whom I've already told, thank you for your support and encouragement! I got this.
You have a good day, now.
