Jill 2.0

Hey blog readers (all 5 of you)...sorry it's been so long. Here's why:

Last week, I turned 30. Last month, I got divorced.

At this time last year, I was writing my 30 Before 30 post, listing the things I hoped to experience or accomplish before I turned 30. Some of them happened - I ran a 10k, took a sewing class, and learned to cook more things from scratch. But most of the things I wrote on that list did not happen. And I realized, reading back over it, that many of them were meaningless goals anyway. So in this new decade of my life, I'm not writing a list. No collection of forced goals with an arbitrary timeline. Instead, I am going to focus on ONE single goal - finding happiness...whatever that may mean for me. I will do the things I love more often and discover new things I never even knew I loved. I will surround myself with the amazing friends and family who have stood by me throughout the years and meet new amazing people to bring into the fold. Everyone has been telling me the 30s will be the best decade of my life. I've been pretty blessed in life so far, so I can't wait to see what's in store for me next...

So this is my re-entry into the blogging world. I'm not going to remove any of my previous posts, because those experiences and memories will always be part of my life. My life is just taking a different course from here on out. It will be a make-over, a total re-boot...Jill 2.0 - the best version yet.
