Hello all! It’s been a week or so since my last post. Since returning from my amazing trip in Austin, Texas, things have been busy! Work has been occupying much of my time and energy, which is a-okay considering 2020 has started with a bang for me professionally. The job market is strong and I have been working with exceptional clients and candidates. It’s very exciting!
Also, the last few weekends have included a lot of fun activities. Two weekends ago, my dear friend Britt came in for a girl’s night out with me and Kylie. In addition to pedicures, we went shopping, then out to the Laugh Factory, followed by a decadent dinner at Sepia. This past Saturday, I traveled by train up to Arlington Heights to celebrate my other dear friend, Andrea’s birthday as well as her daughter Izzy’s second birthday. So much fun!
On my own, outside of CorePower classes and walks outside, I’ve been keeping active with the initial packing of my apartment. Yes, I know, it’s so early, but consider what you know about me. I’m moving on May 4th to a building in Lincoln Park that has all of the amenities I’ve been wanting, nay, pining for including in-unit laundry (praise the lord), dishwasher, balcony, elevator, rooftop deck with grills, fitness center, and a beautiful kitchen.
I can’t explain how excited and how over my current living situation I am. I can already tell this new property management company is incredible, though I feel that anything would be better than my current one with their lack of responses, sense of urgency, etc. The new management company has already sent me emails about their Rewards Program and events. I look forward to moving somewhere that offers these local perks and a chance for community. I don’t know any of my current neighbors by name and am only vaguely familiar with one gentleman a few doors down.
This new opportunity also brings an opportunity to redecorate. I will be purchasing a new couch and dining table and chairs (my current bistro table and pair of chairs is for sale, if you’re interested and can do pick-ups in Chicago)!. Now that I have a more modern bed frame and a gray bedspread, I will continue to choose gray with accent colors (possibly pale pink, teal, etc.). We will see. I am just thrilled for this upgrade!
Other than that, planning a few long weekend trips with my mom this spring. Also continuing research on dog ownership. Looking forward to the changes and warmer weather ahead. Have a great week, all!
