Every End is a New Beginning.

Hi guys,

It’s time to say goodbye to LeFrenchMartini

I’d been thinking about reviving Le French Martini but the truth is, this blog is kind of a phase that is pretty much over. It was born out of a quarter life crisis that is thankfully pretty done. Rather than delete this account (which I do not have the heart to do) I decided to keep it, leave it and start fresh somewhere else.

What sparked this move?

I had a reader email me the other day asking me why I stopped writing.

She had voiced her disappointment with how sparse this blog had become.

And the thing is, I totally understand what she’s talking about. I haven’t been able to write, especially here, because I no longer identify with what this blog was all about.

So it’s time to start from scratch.

This blog was all about finding out what I want to do with my life, what is love all about—basically, finding direction. Now, I feel like I have direction and I know where I want to go and who I want to become. So that’s what this move is all about. It’s about climbing out of whatever this blog represented and starting to move forward to where I want to be.

So shall we finally begin?

I met some great bloggers during my time at Le French Martini and I hope you guys follow me at my new address www*27thstreetandLife*tumblr[*com.

Started using a new shampoo.

And all day I haven’t been able to focus at work because damn, my hair smells good.

I’m like…swooning over myself.

Everything was going well until I got to the boat. Obviously by that point the half bottle of wine I guzzled down with frustration had gotten to me.

I have to say, I used to see photos of people and their cheesy paintings all over my Facebook going to these “sip and paint” classes and I judged the crap out of them. What are we? Old women?
But now… now I can’t wait to do it all again.

Read Sheryl Sandberg’s “lean In” recently.

It really is about timing, isn’t it? Because I couldn’t have read this book at a better time.

I don’t agree with 100% of what she says but the book is inspiring nonetheless.

I am ready to find my womanly balance. I am ready to reach my potential and become the partner I would want my future partner to want to be with.

Act 2 begins now. …

Currently on the train back to DC from New York.

Why did I never take the train before? This is amazeballZ.

I am so lucky to have such amazing friends because that must mean something, right? Because my friends aren’t just cool because they are my friends. These kids are seriously some amazing individuals with big hearts. Good, genuine people to the core. And they are my friends so really, I must be doing something right to be surrounded by so many of them…

Thank you to these people that make me feel so complete. Thank you.
