My New York friends groups (for conversation, play and for work) are just about the most supportive, intelligent, compassionate, exciting, ambitious, and amazing company a woman could ask for. I'm now exhausted and certainly sad to leave again, but am also filled to the brim with wonderful hugs, kisses, laughter, and inspiration.

I'm totally ready to go back to Seattle and make bold career strides. I feel more confident than ever, and am even further entrenched in my bi-coastial conviction.

It's unfortunate that I do miss half of all weekends in Seattle. Big things happen every time I leave. But, you know, I always did feel stagnated spending week after week in the same city. Even NY and I would have horrible arguments during those awful poor years when I couldn't even afford to jump on Metro North to go anywhere or do anything. This is the right life for me, and I'm thankful for it in ways I can't begin to describe.

Tomorrow I fly home to freshly wallpapered rooms, an almost-husband who loves me as I deserve to be loved, and a cat who makes me sneeze with affection. The only thing that could make things better would be the ability to tele-transport myself without the stress and time it takes to travel. I guess a lady can't have everything.

Tonight: Dinner with some of my favorites. I'm going to be late if I don't haul out!!!

New York was overwhelming in the best possible way.

I was booked solid, every day, 10 hours straight, with my favorite clients. After finishing my last haircuts at 9ish, I went out, every night, with some of my favorite people. It was impossible for me to have too much work or too much fun while I was there.

Hi-lights in no particular order include:  )

I consider myself very lucky to have wonderful life and wonderful work on both coasts. When I arrived in New York, I sighed and said, "I'm home!" When I came back to Seattle - I sighed and said those same words. Truly, I feel at home in both places. I have beautiful friends, a successful career, family, and plans ... in both Seattle and New York. Rather than feeling divided by the 3 thousand miles between these cities, I feel excited and challenged. I'm so thankful to all the employers, clients, and friends who make this duality possible.
