I am on a journey to live a life I love and to fill my life with the things that truly bring me joy... my dream job, loving relationships, financial abundance, a healthy mind and body, and a deep spiritual connection with all that is. I am living consciously to create a life filled with all the things I love.

Starting Fresh!

It's the beginning of a new chapter in my life. We moved! A new apartment is always a new chapter for me. It's fresh start with a new environment that infuses my life with new energy. We even had the coolest moving trucks move us! Take a look!

These trucks were real works of art! I was impressed. These are the coolest moving trucks I've ever seen. I decided that along with my new move, I would start blogging more again. I had considered discontinuing further blog entries because my life is now busy with a baby and all, but recently I've received some emails from some readers that have told me how they had been inspired by my story and are on similar paths and wanted me to continue. For them and all of you out there that are following my blog and benefiting from hearing my story, I dedicate my blogs to all of you and will continue to share my story with the hope that it helps you with yours!

Oh how my life has changed now that I have a baby. The first month was really about recovery from the delivery and just trying to orient myself to a new life with a baby. The first three months was just really about survival. I knew there would be sleepless nights, but I had no idea just how extreme it would be! My baby had day/night confusion, so my bedtime was sometimes 5, 6, 7, or even 8am! Boy was I exhausted. I had to sleep during the day when the baby slept and stay awake all night constantly feeding and feeding and feeding and feeding. Now that she's sleeping much better and her schedule has improved from sleeping at 5am to 4am, then 2am, 1am, midnight, 10pm, and recently sometimes 8pm, I am feeling much better and starting to feel more like my old self.

I'm sure some of you may be wondering how I am managing my new life as a mother and my new career in fashion. I have been giving this a lot of thought as to how I wanted this to progress in the future. It's still in the works, but as of now I was lucky enough to find a wonderful independent designer to work for part-time. I interned for her during my last semester of school while I was pregnant. It was the perfect opportunity for me because her studio was pretty close to my home and she was willing to let me work only one day a week (usually most internships require at least 2 or 3 full days), which was all I could afford with the crazy amount of work at school. Being a mother to a young child herself and raising him while working, she understood everything I was going through, so she even offered me the option of bringing my baby into work when I was ready to work again. She has a kid area with toys for her son and had all the baby things, like a bouncer and activity mat, that I could use. How amazing is that? So, just before Sophie turned 3 months old, I went to work for her part-time. So far things are going well. I am always nervous that Sophie might be fussy and need too much attention during the time I am there that I can't get as much work done, but she is so understanding and nice about the whole situation that I really feel like I lucked out with the perfect situation I need for my life right now.

Sophie is now 5 months old, and she is starting to need more attention than before because she is so alert and attentive to everything that is going on around her now. We'll see how she is now once I go back to work. I had to take a break from work for a trip I took to Chicago to visit family and celebrate Sophie's 100 day birthday (a Korean tradition) and her baptism. We also drove to Indiana to visit my husband's old high school for his 20 year reunion! Wow, it's hard to believe he's been out of high school for that long. The break ended up being a little longer because we had to move and was actually "homeless" for 2 weeks because we were in between leases and had to stay at a relative's place in NJ for a while. After all that, we are finally at our new place and I am super excited to get everything situated so that I can truly enjoy the benefits of our new place. Even with the boxes all over the place, I feel at home already. Finally a place we can see ourselves living in for more than a year!

I hope all of you had a lovely spring season (it seemed that it went straight from winter to summer in NY) and are now enjoying the summer! I will post more frequently so come back often! My dreams and ambitions to pursue my own fashion line have not yet died, so even with a baby, I will figure out a way to make it all work out. :)
