Hold on for a hot minute

Jan 29, 2015

Hey gals. 

If you’re reading this message, it’s because I was out late last night celebrating my best friend who is moving to San Francisco. I scheduled this “buffer” post, just in case I didn’t actually come home at 11pm and accomplish all that I had originally hoped to. (That was never going to happen, let’s be honest.) 

You see, the majority of my girlfriends (with a few major exceptions) have pretty much all been together here in Chicago since college, and one very big part of my life is now moving to the other side of the country. 

We spent quite a few significant hours at Girl and The Goat telling funny stories and sharing our favorite memories, and to be honest, I’m a so happy for her, and so sad at the same time. 

SO if you’re reading this right now, I just haven’t gotten my shit together yet. If you’re reading this, I have decided to go for a night of sleep instead of an early morning blog post. (Can you blame me? Really?) I promise there will be a post coming at SOME point today. Just forgive me for not having my shit together. 

More to come soon. 

In the meantime, let’s congratulate my friend, Michal, on being a huge badass, as she’s preparing to conquer the world in her new life in San Francisco. 

With love,
