Five Years: An Ode to New York City

Five Years: An Ode to New York City

Five years seems like a major milestone for us – this raucous, seductive city and me. As one who loves new adventures, endless options, and would prefer to always be on the move, half a decade is a big deal. In my younger days, imagining five years with someone seemed like an eternity. I assumed I would get bored, restless and need a new object for my affections. But it seems that New York City and I have found ourselves officially in a long-term relationship. Like most of my romances, I dove headlong into my love affair with New York. I ... Read More »

On Making Hoboken Feel Like Home

This summer marks my fourth year living in Hoboken. It is hard to believe I’ve been here over 1460 days already. This is the longest I have lived in one area since my high school days. I used to hate change, but after half of my life being filled with it, it has become harder to settle in somewhere and embrace a place as home.

The Trepidation of Urban Motherhood

Photo Credit: Michael Comeau, Creative Commons I am thinking more often and more actively about what it looks like to be a mom in the city.

I am a researcher and fact-gatherer at heart. I want to be fully informed on whatever is my current topic of interest. I want to discuss it with anyone who will listen, and then eventually at some point, I feel ready ... Read More »

In Praise of Millenial Church

I have done a fair amount of traveling over the last few months through various parts of the South, and have come to realize something: when I am away from my church family on Sundays, I find myself homesick. It’s somewhat shocking for me to come to this realization. As I’ve written about before, it’s taken a long time for me to really embrace Hoboken as home. Coming here has required being a part of a culture vastly different from the one I moved from, and in the past I have sometimes felt like an outsider in church that purposes to reach ... Read More »

A New Adventure

Today marks the start of the next life adventure. I am excited to announce that… I’m returning to the world of the unemployed! Apologies to those who were hoping for another kind of announcement. Nope, still no babies yet! After much discussion and deliberation, my current employer and I decided to go our separate ways. When I started with my current company over two years ago, Nick and I were in a very different place financially and I really needed a full time job to set us up for financial freedom. It was a definite blessing that the opportunity came when ... Read More »
