it's a good excuse, i swear...

Things have been pretty hectic in my world lately, and it hasn't been anything I could blog about... hence the lack of blogging. The biggest news though I can finally share... I gave my notice at work! I'm going to be heading to another magazine starting in the new year to be the Photo Editor there. Should be an exciting new endeavor, with lots more responsibilities and creative potential. I can't wait! It'll be sad though leaving my current mag. I've only been there for two years (my anniversary was last Thursday), but I'm really feeling sentimental.

The day after I gave my notice we had our magazine holiday party. It was at Tortilla Flats this year, a fun tex/mex place in Greenwich Village. I had yummy sangria and margaritas, but was forced to wear neon necklace things, which made it feel more like a kid's bar mitzvah than an adult work party. At least the drinks and delish mexican food made up for it. Best part was watching my coworkers try to hula hoop after several hours of drinking. Hilarious. I'll truly miss this crew. Especially a few of my coworkers with whom I've become really close, but hopefully we'll keep up our girls nights out!
