favorites, and some news
today, i’m feeling the darker days and flat light in october. it’s been grey, chilly and rainy in new york the past few days and i think that has a lot to do with it. i like the feeling this weather gives me – time to bundle up, pull out the wool, stop going sock-less. but i’m also hoping for a bit more sun and bright fall colors in the coming weeks.
and i’ve got some news! many of you already know this, but i haven’t talked about it around here yet.
i’m moving to london.
i know. it feels strange to say that, even now, when i’ve known for a few months. i’ll be moving in a few weeks, in the middle of november. i’m moving for work — my firm asked me to do a rotation in their london office, and i accepted. while it’s not permanent (i will be there for a year, possibly a bit longer), it still feels pretty huge. i’m incredibly excited about it, but nervous. but as a wise friend so eloquently put it recently, “the things that make you smile and make you nervous are the very best things.” they are, indeed.
so, i have a little project up my sleeve that has come out of this move, and i hope to share it with you here in a couple of weeks. in the meantime, i’m looking at flats online and dreaming about the many restaurants and cafes that i’ll visit, and the neighborhoods where i’ll take photo walks. not to mention the fact that i can finally pick up a copy of ‘tender‘ and visit places like this. i’ve always been sort of an anglophile, so i know that this will be a good move for me.
i’ll miss brooklyn terribly, but i will be back after my rotation is over. in the meantime, i’m soaking up every last bit of NYC that i can, while looking forward to an exciting year ahead.
i hope your weekend is tops, and i’ll see you here next week. and thank you for all of your wonderful comments and emails this week. cheers!
