back to work

it’s official.  this is my last week of being “at liberty”.  i have worn sweatpants every single day of this week and loved the non-stop marathon of “keeping up with the kardashians”.  i left my last job as an associate development director at a real estate development company in may 2012.  i spent the summer doing a lot of traveling and then getting ready to move myself and the little guy pictured here, theodore pickles, to london to be with my fiancé.  as soon as i moved, i started at the KLC School of Design getting my degree in Interior Design.  After graduating in July, I traveled and did the final preparations for my wedding in September, 2013.  I can’t believe how fast the time went.  It feels like i’ve been doing a lot of hurry-up-and-wait, and “as soon as…” in my life this past year.  all of this has really been going towards me getting a job and living/lapping up life in london.  i know that they say that it’s not the destination, it’s the journey and all that, but it finally feels like i’m grabbing a hold of my steering wheel.

 

living the airbnb dream in copenhagen

this couch is perfect for lazing around and reading a romance novel. or waiting to be called into the office beyond while casually eyeing helmut lang nudes.

when I moved to London to be with my then-fiancé, I thought that we were going to be able to travel a lot. after all, what was the point of living in the gateway to Europe and not seeing Europe?? well I’ve learned two things, 1. London is an incredible city that continually unfoldsand surprises, 2.being in school mean that Lisa was not available for fun weekend jaunts. luckily, school eventually was finished, degree earned, and we were able to explore some new places before summer was over.

one of my favourite stops was denmark. we rented an apartment off of airBNB and I have to say, it was one of the most beautiful places I’ve stayed– hotel or house.  not only was christian, the owner, kind and accommodating, he picked us up from the airport, stocked the fridge with yummy bites and left a very helpful list of things to see and do while in the city.
