Welcome to SANDYLAND!!

Hello hello hello Blogosphere. Welcome to Spring (finally). Yesterday, Easter Sunday, I actually wore a dress and bare legs. Thank you, Mother Nature for finally letting up on being a bitch and allowing us some sun. It was a glorious weekend. 🙂

But, I have some serious news. It’s been a little while in the making but it’s finally happening. I am moving. Several months ago I applied for a “dream job” of sorts. It was on a whim and I decided to go forth with it, never actually expecting it to turn into anything. But, not too long ago I received some follow up, discussed my options and have decided to jump ship here and have accepted a position as a writer with a small publication in New York City. I’m overwhelmed. Sad, yet excited.

I am full-on a Valley Girl and will always consider this my home but right now this is the opportunity of a lifetime and since I’ve already let one opportunity pass me by (https://welcometosandyland.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/letting-life-pass-me-by-or-how-i-sabotaged-my-life/) I couldn’t let this one go.

So, here I go. In less than 3 weeks I will be a New Yawker. Wish me luck.


Happy First Day of SPRING!!

My Expectation

Sun and warmth and flowers and greenery...

Sun and warmth and flowers and greenery…

My Reality…dammit!

(Okay, it's maybe not that bad but it's still storm and enough that there are tons of cancellations today....not a good way to start the season.

Mother Nature is a bitch, y’all.  Welcome to Nova Scotia!!


A Love-Struck Romeo…

Yesterday we had gorgeous pre-Spring weather here in Nova Scotia.  It was sunny and warm and all the crappy feet of snow have melted over this last week (which, BTW, I was excited for as no snow will greatly help us out in the search for Mark Clarke who has been missing since February 4th: https://welcometosandyland.wordpress.com/2013/02/09/missing-person/).  So, imagine my disgust when I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland.  I’m devastated.  I hate winter.  We’re six days away from hitting Spring and were soooo close yesterday but now we’re back to snow-covered ground again (it’s an ongoing joke that Nova Scotia has 4 seasons – winter, almost winter, more winter and road construction).

However, as I was opening my office this morning I happened to look out the window and saw a man dancing down the sidewalk thru the snow.  He reminded me of the delivery dude in the Romeo & Juliet scene in Empire Records (love!!).

(watch at 1:29 in)

The man totally made my Friday.  🙂

A happy one to you all!


PS: Yesterday morning I sent a message to my friend Anic saying “Happy Friday Friend!”  An hour later I sent another message “Oh shit…it’s only effing Thursday!  FML”

Her response: “Nahahah.”

It was a very.long.week.
