Tagged!

I've read all about this tagging business, but never have been tagged before. Well, lovely Ashley from Hiking in Stilettos has tagged me, so you all get to learn a little more about me. So here goes:

10 years ago I got my first "real job" at a software company in Manhattan. The company just hired a whole bunch of newbies, so we were like the freshmen, but now we were earning money. When I wasn't working, I was out making new friends with co-workers at happy hours and partying in the clubs. Good times.
No Idea was a bar we frequented.

8 years ago I was living in my first post college apartment in Queens with a roommate. Now I could stay out later since I didn't have to worry about catching the last train back to my parents house on Long Island, and cabs were only $20 if I was really drunk. That apartment also happened to be down the street from my boyfriend's, which was purely coincidental, but lots of fun.

6 years ago I was still working at the same company but I moved back home to save money in aspirations of buying a place in the city. I didn't buy an apartment, but did buy my first car a year later.

2 years ago
I moved to Atlanta where my boyfriend was living. I started making jewelry while looking for a job, and ended up turning my hobby into a business. And so, here we are.

5 yummy things:
chocolate ice cream
mushroom ravioli in cream sauce
bul-go-gi (Korean marinated beef)

red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting

Italy
Greece
Spain
