Back to life...back to reality

Sadly, I've had the En Vogue song in my head all morning. I'm sitting at my desk, in Saatchi NY, waiting for my Lotus Notes to replicate...and pinching myself to be sure the last 6 weeks weren't just a dream. I was greeted back to NYC by 30 degrees F (-1 degrees Celsius for all you Aussies)...so I've traded in my thongs for Ugg boots, my singlets for multiple layers of sweaters and a North Face down jacket, and lastly - the real shocker - I've traded my Fine Foods large skinny cap for a take away Dunkin Donuts coffee to help me fend off my jet lag. I'm 16,231 miles or 26,122 kms away from amazing coffee and my morning ritual with AJ. :(

I spent the last week on a solo-road trip around the South island of New Zealand, which could be an entire blog in itself, so instead, just ask me if you'd like to hear my NZ stories and see my pictures - I'd love to catch up with you all now that I'm back in the states, and in a more manageable time zone for phone calls.

I had such an incredible time in Australia - and I'm so thankful for the life long friends I made, as they truly made Sydney feel like home. I can't begin to express how lucky I feel to have had a chance to participate in the Saatchi Switch program. It was truly life-changing, and has helped to put so many things into perspective for me. Thank you for following my adventures via my blog - this will be my last entry to close the trip out, but I'm sure it won't be my last trip to Oz.

  1. I know you're sad to be back, but at least you're "stuck" back in NYC!

    I'm so excited to hear all about Oz and your NZ road trip! Can we arrange a 2 hour phone date soon?? Also, I'm coming up for a visit Feb 4-7th, so I'll get to see some pictures in person! Yay!!! Oh and please please continue your blog, it makes my day reading it, and living in NY you know that you have tons of random crap happen every day. I mean, if I have stories from H-Town.....
