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 www.meaganadelelopez.com/blog – Lady Who Lunches still works, but I am slowly transitioning to my new image. Stay tuned for the makeover!
