toh poori kainaat tumhein usse tumse milane ki koshish mein
lag jaati hai…”
- Celebrated our wedding anniversary in NYC for the very first time! We knew relocating from NYC was not too far away and this was (probably) our ONLY chance to celebrate it in New York style before we (sadly) bid adieu to our favorite city!
- I got my PMP (Project Management Professional) certification. I woke up one fine day and decided I just had to get my PMP certification over with, so I gathered all the necessary documents for the application (believe me, that was a painfully long process), registered for the exam, crammed for it day and night, and aced it, all in a span of 5 days, (phew! If only I was that determined at all times #chuckles).
- Hubby dear graduated with his MBA, and so did I, as an MBA wife (self awarded :p). I only wish they awarded a medal to the spouses, you know, for all that we go through. Though it was just a year, it felt like the longest (and the hardest) one year, but boy, was it worth it! And I hope to god that we don’t ever have to go through the (long-distance) craziness that is Cornell MBA.
- Both sets of parents came to the US for hubby’s graduation, and the entire family (parents, in-laws, brother and us) spent plenty of quality time in a teeny-tiny one-bedroom apartment before the big move! Sure, we were in each other’s face all the time, but hey, when the heart is big the space isn’t a big deal right? The seven of us have never all been at the same place at the same time since our wedding in 2011, so this was huge for us.
- I made the boldest decision of my life to quit a well-paying corporate job to relocate to Seattle. For someone that had worked in big banks on Wall Street since graduation, this sure was a nerve-racking decision to make. Not sure yet if it was the wisest decision, but I sure am living the dream, chasing my million fancies!
- The day of the first BIG move was upon us, as hard as it was to pack up and move from a city we had called home for a long time, the thought of change and living in a new city was just as thrilling and brought with it its own kind of excitement. We finally flew from NYC to Seattle, and thus began a new chapter in our lives.
