A new, beautiful year

It's been a while since I posted, which I've posted about, but now I'm serious about getting this blog going. I finally bought a new computer, so I can finally type in an efficient manner. No more posts from the iPhone.

My thought for today:

It has been one year since I moved back to Phoenix. It has been an incredible year with very little downs, if any, and so many wonderful moments. I interviewed for a job a week before I moved and I got it. Then I got a promotion and raise after a few months! I moved here with my then-boyfriend, being somewhat miserable as I had been in that relationship for a while. But, I hid it well and tried my best. We rode it out, tried to fake a good relationship and finally broke up in June. That is a whole other story. It was hard for a few days, but I got over it pretty quickly, but I had been over it for a while. It really was a happy moment. So, starting after the break up, I started to change things. My best friend and I (the reason I moved to Phoenix the first time four years ago) started having weekly dinner dates. I bought some new clothes that I felt really confident in. I started volunteering with homeless children. I went on On Match, I met my boyfriend Nick. I never expected anything to happen but then I met him and he was this breath of incredible fresh air. It was soon after the breakup but I would have been stupid not to go out with him. Then I started thinking about buying a house. Then I found my beautiful house. I bought it, which was stressful, but now here I am, typing this in my beautiful house. It has been a wonderful year and I think this one will be just as amazing, if not more so. I get to spend the whole year with my lovely Nick and I have never been so comfortable and confident in a relationship. I still have my dinner dates with Jessica and we are doing Lifetime movie nights with one of my friends form high school who lives here now. Phoenix was one of the best choices I have made. My life has come together and I feel like I'm at home.

Life is good.
