Four Months in Chicago

Life has moved so quickly here that I can’t believe we’ve already been in Chicago for CORRECTION: 4 months, not six. We’ve been in the United States for 6 months. It truly feels that we were meant to be here.

With working over 60 hours a week at two positions and building up my social media profile, as well as writing and finding other people jobs, life is full.

Jock and I have successfully filled the apartment with new pieces of furniture.

I have passed many milestones this move – first new television over 20″ and under 40″ wide (this one is 47″ and thin!), first new couch, new bed and stainless steel appliances. First time living in a high rise.  Somehow at 28, I feel a little behind, but oh well. I’ve lived my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

We found our local – Jake Melnick’s. Love that place and can’t get enough of their Pulled Pork Nachos. I dream about swimming through BBQ sauce.

I bought my first pair of snow boots since I was at least 10 years old.

Also, I’m an aunt once again! Beautiful Xavi Andres was born today after just a few hours. When my sister sets her goals on something, there is no stopping her. Out he came with a full head of hair, and I can’t wait to see the little guy.

Heading home tomorrow for Christmas and have a car booked just in case the plane doesn’t want to take off due to snow. Come snow or ice, I will make it back to Baltimore.

Jock is still healing from his knee injury, but walks most days without a limp now. I still forget and sometimes knock it the wrong way.

Our little lives are coming together.

Also, you may have noticed that the new website is – Lady Who Lunches still works, but I am slowly transitioning to my new image. Stay tuned for the makeover!

  1. Thanks for sharing. It does seem to be a lot going on. It seem to work and probably because there are some unifying factors. You also provide a great model for people of all ages in terms of following your passion and staying consistent. Keep letting us know about your journey. It's an interesting story.

  2. I can't believe how much time has gone by since you first left the UK. So much has happened for you ( well, I know YOU make it happen) ! Merry Christmas and a Happy & healthy New Year 2011 to you and Jock and all those near and dear to you! Enjoy your time in Baltimore, and I look forward to keep up with your stories in the year to come !

  3. Wow! Six months already? It's crazy how quickly we get into the swing of things. I've been bad at keeping up but would love to hear more about what you're up to. :)
