I Live Alone

She was 21, wishing she lived by the sun, the sand and the sea
So I suggested she’d move out fast and not be the last
To leave and be free
I live alone, I live alone
I live alone, I live alone

So remember in my last post when I said I was moving? Well I'm all moved in! I may need a couch but that's ok. The important part is that these four rooms is all mine, along with all the independence and freedom that comes with them.

It's crazy how quickly I've acclimated to this new place. I may not be able to get to the highway I take to work without a GPS yet, but when I'm home I'm home - not just a place where I exist, but my real and true home. It's a wonderful feeling.

I've also recently discovered that I love to cook dinner for myself. One of the first things I did after I moved in was to go grocery shopping. I didn't buy any already prepared food except some frozen lunches for work, and I haven't even used all of those. I've been cooking dinner most nights and cooking enough to have leftovers to take for lunch. It's actually been a blast, and I've found some new favorite recipes. Also I've loved being able to use all of my vintage Pyrex dishes. <3

All in all I'm settling in really well and I'm excited to have Molly come visit me this weekend. We're going to explore my new town and take lots of pictures, so stay tuned for that!

Until next time...
