So yesterday, I found out that someone stole my credit card information and used it to purchase fish food at a pet store in Detroit, Michigan.
I was shopping at the mall and my card got declined at H&M, it was all very embarrassing. And frustrating, since this is the second time someone’s managed to siphon money from an account of mine.
That being said, I wanted to take the time today to reflect more on the positives of the last two weeks, because Mike and I actually have achieved a milestone we’ve been talking about practically the entire time we’ve been dating: We moved to Syracuse!
We’ve been living in our apartment for 2 weeks, and loving it so far! We finally got a couch the other day, and are working hard to make the apartment feel like home. It’s strange, but anywhere we’ve ever lived, we haven’t bothered to hang up posters or pictures, feeling a lack of permanence. Well, not anymore!
I’m writing this post a few hours late than I normally schedule my Saturday posts due to the hubbub about my card, and coordinating the handyman fixing our oven. It’s been a hectic week, but I finally got to bake this healthy carrot bread I’ve been dying to make, the smell is wafting through the whole place, mingling with my fall-scented Pier 1 candles- and it’s hard to imagine a time when I’ve ever been happier.
I can’t wait to experience more of the sights and sounds and foods, and share them on the blog! For now, though, I’m content to write these brief words, and work on planning the best fall content for you guys 🙂
Because as it turns out, even when really crappy things happen to you- you realize you’re blossoming into a better person, living life to the fullest in the (relatively) big city. So get out there!
Keep it real,
