A Season of Change.

2011 Blizzard Chicago

Tonight I’m missing cold evenings with warm socks.  I’m missing cuddling under big blankets and drinking hot cocoa.  I’m missing street noise creeping through my high-up windows.  I’m missing a heavy coat and a frozen nose.

As the new year sneaks up on me, I can’t help but reflect on years gone by.  I’m wistful for days when bills weren’t mine to pay and when starting “real life” felt exciting and new.  I’m missing my schoolgirl crushes and trying to find the excitement in this chapter of my life.  I’m wishing for a hand to hold and a shoulder to lean on.  I’m looking forward to what this new year is going to bring and I’m ready to let go of all that happened in the past.

  1. It’s funny – what I wouldn’t give to go to a New Years party in a leggy romper, lol. I’m in my hometown and it’s supposed to be -35 tomorrow. It’s going to be a pretty dress, thick leggings, cardigan, double socks, kind of outfit.
    But I am 100% with you on wishing for the days before bills and ‘real life.’
    I think this new year might be bringing a career change for me.
    Alas, enjoy what you can and all the best in 2013!

    • You always want what you don’t have, I suppose ;). Real life is tougher than they say and the transition between school and young adulthood is like a full of year of harsh harsh reality. Wishing you a happy new year Mel :).
