I went to bed last night thinking that it has been a while since I have been on this blog. And what do you know? !! It has been an entire year! Seriously? Where did the time go? I am appalled and amazed at the same time.
If you know either me or Alicia my sister, you will know that we have been hard at work with OMGOING, since May 2014. And time just flew! It is coming to a year and a half and we have learnt so much as well. Doing your own business is really not easy – you have to learn to do so much and you do it all yourself. Every morning I have a to-do list and every night I find that I can never check off all that I wanted to do.
I have missed this space so much. I remember sitting at the porch every sunday afternoon in my past life, writing a new post and even though it is time-consuming, I enjoy every bit of it. I have made so many friends thru this space and they have remained close to my heart.
Owning our own business has become so encompassing we work even on weekends at times, wrapping urgent parcels, meeting overseas clients, preparing the site for launches and updating social media. I missed this space and I would like to be back here more often. I said this before here – so lets see how much of it I will keep to.
So much has happened since then. In Jan 2015, I travelled with Kee Wee to NYC, Savannah, Charleston and we spent his birthday back in NYC where they had a blizzard. It wasn’t as serious as it sounded but we have never seen Manhattan that quiet before. Quite an experience. No taxi horns, no click clacking of NY-ers walking along the streets and it felt surreal. We had some of our best times there in January this year. But I suppose I shall leave that to another day and another post.
Here are some photos from that trip this year (how is it that I went in January and it seems like it was from years ago… we need another holiday to NYC!!) if you want to see.
Whenever we are in NYC, we always stay at the Library Hotel – tip top service from the sweet ladies at the lounge to the managers at the front desk. And we are at this lounge that is filled with food and drinks and wine, more times than we can count. When the weather gets too brutal (we have been to NYC 3 times in December, I have no idea why..) we get takeout from Whole Foods and we eat them here at the lounge in comfort, with warm cups of coffee and bright smiles from the staff here.
And we adopted a dog! And we named him Austin for the fantastic time that we had in Austin in Dec 2013. Saying hi to Elaine (who is my e pal in Austin!) Congratulations on the baby, Elaine! Write me!
I will also share more about Austin, our husky, soon – he deserves a whole post to himself. He and his poop. Yes, you will get to know about that too. Pictures too.
And here is what is on my mind today:
- I am dying to see this show.
- I am so damn jealous of how hip and cool this IG is.
- We are planning a trip to Portland and Oregon next, any suggestions for us?
- This looks so damn good I made Kee Wee recreate for me. Perfect for days when I do cardio and images of pasta fly over my head during class.
- I am reading this book now. So far I cannot put it down.
Obsessed with this song right now:
Have a sweet week ahead and I really hope to write more often here!
