It's Saturday afternoon in Amish country Pennsylvania, Fall is in full effect and the brisk cool air teases my excitement for Winter. After a long and busy week at work, an espresso, a cigarette and a warm couch was all I needed.
The thought of starting this blog had been looming over my head for a while. Life has been tranquil since graduating and it is exactly what I've been waiting for. For the first time in 6 years, I can finally let the dust settle and the thought of it escapes me in the form of giant grin.
My leather bound journals, once filled with stories of travel, heartbreak and excitement for the future sits stoic now on the shelves waiting for the touch of a pen. Their contents frozen like a museum of a lifetime past. To this day I still can't fully grasp the significance of it all and I don't think I ever will. So much of it seemed too good to be true and it leaves me with a blind and almost naive belief that the best is yet to come.
I'm in love, living in a dream home, working a dream job and all I want to do is make beautiful things. Life is great.
And so it begins...
