2015 is done and over — we are now a whole four days into 2016. It’s a new year. We rang in the new year in Buxton, ME at a home with a few friends. It was strikingly beautiful — an old schoolhouse restored to be a home, complete with a spiral staircase. It was cozy, relaxing, and a great place to think and eat an obscene amount of food. Take a foodie on vacation, you’re going to get a lot of food. That’s right, I’ve embraced my foodie nature.
2015 was a big year, year in review:
3. Broke and finally bought a kindle and regret NOTHING
4. Took up acrylic painting
5. Turned my house inside out cleaning it and throwing things away after reading this book. It’s life changing.
7. Visited some of my friends in their new homes
8. Found my favorite restaurant in Cambridge. This love is real.
9. Started family dinner with my brother and sister-in-law, and love it.
10. Appreciated my family more.
11. Discovered burrata. Nothing has been the same.
12. Saw my best friend marry. This was an incredible experience I feel privileged to have been a part of.
13. Acquired and lost a selfie stick. May your new home be as good as the one I provided you oh selfie stick.
14. Experienced the kindness of my fellow Wellesley alums who housed me on the interview trail. Thank you Ale and Christine.
15. Spent time with friends in new cities.
16. Learned how to spend time with myself.
17. Fell more in love with my husband. And his beard.
18. Fell more in love with my dogs.
19. Realized how unbelievably proud I am of Tyler.
20. Made this freaking awesome yule log.
That’s the short list. Who knows what this year will bring…will I match? Where will I match? What is Tyler going to do? Where will we be? What adventures will we have? Who knows, but I’m excited to find out.
