Headed down south to the land of the pines

Hello again! I know it’s been quite a while and I have some BIG NEWS to update you with. You know how you have a plan (or you think you have a plan) and life just changes on you? It’s almost so surreal that you can’t believe it’s actually your life? Yeah, that’s kind of what life has been like for me lately.

If you haven’t already heard via Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook… Mike and I are officially heading down south. We are relocating to Raleigh, North Carolina in a couple short weeks! We’re both still in disbelief that it’s actually happening, but I know once we get down there it’ll be like BAM. This is our life!


As you can imagine, life has just been INSANE since we found out. Between making arrangements for the move, taking care of loose ends around here, going through all of our stuff and packing, we haven’t been able to do (or even think) about much else. It’s still hard to believe I’m leaving the land of CLE, which has been my home for the last 15 years. I am excited for a new adventure though – and from what I’ve heard/seen, North Carolina has a lot to offer. The hardest part of this huge life change is definitely going to be leaving my mom – we’ve NEVER been this far apart (the most was 1 hour away during college). That’s where Skype and my mom’s vacation time will come in handy, haha.

There’s so much more I can (and want to) say but I’ll just leave it with that for now – but expect more updates and pictures soon! Thanks so much for reading <3

Oh & of course I can’t help but share a relevant (albeit cliche) song ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you ever relocated? Do you have any tips?

Do you have any tips or adviceย for North Carolina? (Especially regarding the Raleigh area…)

Until next time…


  • Raleigh is BEAUTIFUL! I hope you love it ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m about 3 and a half hours away so I’ve only been a once or twice, but North Carolina is great and MUCH warmer than Ohio ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Love that line from the ZBB! Makes me think of Georgia. I’ve considered relocating to ATL Bc I have a sister that lives there. Perhaps one day I will! Congrats on the move!
