STILL PICTURING THE PRETTY IN LIFE – ONE YEAR LATER

Today PicturethePretty.com is one-year-old!  Over the last 12 months, I made 452 new follower friends, with over 4,800 views.  This time last year I was in Afghanistan, wondering whether or not I could go to Italy ALONE.

At the time I began this blog, I was finishing up a six month stint in Afghanistan. I ran there for a scenic divorce-moon (why yes that is the opposite of a honeymoon and I did indeed just make the term up).  While I was there I made some rather extravagant travel plans with someone.  This someone cancelled his plans to travel Italy with me and I was finally forced into thinking about my newly single life.  Could I travel alone?  Would I enjoy living alone?  Could I be happy all on my own?  The answer… to living, traveling and be happy is the same…

I will always have a much better time alone than with miserable company having travel fights with my companion on trains, planes and automobiles (we’ll save those stories for another time).

Ever since venturing on 11 trains, a bus, a boat and a handful of taxis in just six days, I have continued to finally become comfortable in my skin while trying not to give up looking for love. Hopefully in the future I will find someone to share my life with, but until then I’m hoping to make life as interesting and fun as possible… all on my own.  Next up will be a whirlwind, jam-packed, no time for silly sleep trip to California.

In the last year, I have undergone some significant transitions from living on a different continent, a long bout of unemployment, and now settling into a new job.  I hope that the next year brings many memorable changes as well – most of which I’m sure I can’t even imagine now.

Thank you so much for following my journey and I hope you will continue to take your time to follow me and let me know exactly what you think every step of the way!

  2. Sounds like you’re getting a pretty good handle on this whole life thing.

    Oh, as far as men and being single, you’re not missing much. We certainly aren’t all we’re cracked up to be. 😉
