Today, as I was walking to meet my dear friend for pre-Sex and the City 2 margs and guac, the Sex and the City movie soundtrack popped up on my iPod. "Labels or Love" by Fergie and then "All Dressed in Love" by Jennifer Hudson. It got me to thinking about seeing the first movie two years ago, and how much has happened since. Forget the fab foursome; I've changed quite a bit as well!
In May 2008, I was a little fish in a big pond. I worked for a luxury magazine that is now out of print. I dated jerks. I held onto ex-boyfriends. I was friends with lots of girls. My favorite pair of shoes were Prada platforms. I was really unsure of what I wanted to do and be and whom I wanted to fall in love with.
In May 2010, I am still a little fish in a big pond, but I'm a bit bigger and the pond is a smidge smaller. I work for a start up in a senior role. I am very single. I have let go of all men from my past. I am friends with even more girls. My favorite shoes are still Prada platforms - a new pair (though I still love and wear the former). And I know exactly what I want out of everything in life.
May was full of mini milestones. I was in the Vineyard VInes catalog, had a beautiful piece of jewelry named after me, and I've been presented with an award. I can't believe that the year is half over, and I'm so excited to see what else is in store. I have lots more time to make it the best yet.
In 2010, I vow to buy a pair of Christian Louboutins. In 2010, I vow to finish my book. If it kills me. And in 2010, I vow to fall in love.
Even if it's just with the shoes.
