The end of a decade and the start of a new one!

It kind of shocks me that it's the end of a decade. Y2k seems like yesterday, but of course really a lot has happened since then.

In 2000, I was living in Boston in my first major publishing job and finishing up grad school. I had lost 100 pounds and was on the top of my game!

I moved to Istanbul to take some time off and teach after grad school in the Spring of 2000. After living in Turkey for a year and a half, I moved back to Houston to get back on my feet financially.

I was rather depressed during that period and gained back all the weight I lost. Oh no! So I needed another major change and planned on moving back to Boston, but somehow ended up in New York. Had a couple of friends that had moved here so I thought, what the heck and applied to a job on a whim. Needless to say I got that job and moved here. For the first few weeks I kept thinking "New York!?!? How the hell did I end up here!?!" But six years later, I can definitely say that I love this city.

And of course, I met Alex here and now we're married. I was surprised that being a newlywed is so romantic!

And now I have this band and am back to losing weight again!

A lot of the last 10 years was about career, and I'm ready for this new decade to be all about family. And health, wellness, and happiness!

Here's to a fabulous 2010!
