This is a very bittersweet post to write. I’m actually tearing up as I write it, but its a mix of incredibly happy tears, tears full of some of the best memories of my life, and tears that are mourning the end of a very profound era that shaped who I am. For the last 20 years I’ve lived in the Atlanta, GA area. I learned almost everything I know here. I met all of my best friends here. I started my career and built a network here. I met the love of my life here. Although, he’s not an ATL native - he lives 4 hours away in Charlotte, NC. A city that I’ve grown a new love for as I explored bits and pieces of it during the short time we've been in this long(ish) distance relationship. And now, I am excited to share that it is my future home too! I’ve decided after a lot of deep thought, some letting go, and oodles of daydreaming that this is the move I need to make. My happiness in Georgia is dwindling and its because half of my light is two states away. I can feel as the season of Fall approaches that there are big changes ahead, and healthy ones that I am internally yearning for. I often crave a change of environment. And this change is not easy but it’s very exciting and I am also crying at the thought of waking up next to my best friend every day.
More to come…
All my love,
