Update From 27.

Hi, anyone who awesomely spotted this little update!

Just thought I’d say “hi”. It’s been almost a few months since I bid an adieu of sorts to this blog, and turning a year older seemed like a good time to check in. As I move closer to 30 (eeks!), I’m really just feeling lucky. In this Chicago life o’ mine I’m definitely not as thin or rich (relative terms ;-D) as I was in the ‘burbs or Milwaukee…and yet I’m so happy. So many friends are a walk or “L” ride away, so many restaurants and breweries have been enjoyed and are still waiting for me, so many streets and lakeside views are just gorgeous. I work with pretty incredible people and have the cutest preschool students around (in my humble opinion). ¬†And, yes, I’m in love and feel very loved and it’s pretty darn awesome. Winning all around.

And, hey, I just hacked 7″ off my hair, which somehow feels like a notable action. I think I’ve been hiding behind long hair for too long. Feeling zero upset when it came off felt like confirmation: I’m so much more comfortable with me. It’s nice. 100%? Ha, no siree. But I’m gettin’ better.

I welcomed this new year with a girlfriends-only brunch (+ window shopping & beverages outside) on Saturday and spent the rest of the weekend with the boyfriend (who just returned from a weeklong family vacation). It was a really lovely balance of friends & couple time (+ a bit of exercise, a lot of good food & drinks, and some very sweet presents).

I have a good feeling about you, 27.

Hope all is well with you. I’m loving keeping up to date with many of my favorite bloggers & readers via instagram…such a fun way to stay in this universe, at least a little bit. Wishing you a wonderful end to May,

Elena
