Last year, I got into the habit of posting a quote with every outfit post. It was fun, inspiring, and an excellent way to make a dent at the three-story-high pile of quotes on post-its that was sitting next to my laptop. I wish I were exaggerating. 

With the new year and a refreshed sense of blogging purpose, I've decided: 
I'm bringing quotes back. 
Apparently, I'm also bringing back duck face. (#itneverleft)

We have to be continually be jumping off cliffs
and developing our wings on the way down.

I've been officially in my new apartment (and old/new city) for two months, I've finished my first semester of graduate school,  I re-learned how to kill bugs by myself (barely, as in spraying them with lysol and hoping they crawl into the ether to die) and cook dinner for less than a crowd: I think it's fair to say my life has been feeling like it's found a new, happy balance. For a while, I think I was staying away from the proverbial cliffs while everything else in my life was being tossed around. I won't say that things went back to the way they were, because they haven't; but they've only gotten better, as changing things is known to make happen. 

2012, let's jump some cliffs and watch those wings go. :)
