Where The Heart Is


It was a bit difficult for me to decide if and when to share this post, but knew it was important to be open with my readers on this time in my life. As most of you know, my family lives back East. Living so far away from them has never been easy, but it gave me the confidence to be the person I am today; ultimately, leading me to start this little blog. The great city of Chicago has been my home for the past six years. During that time, I have graduated college, started to build my career (and an even thicker skin), had my heartbroken, and made the best lifelong friends a girl could ask for. I truly owe becoming the independent person I am now to my experiences in this city. This weekend I will officially be moving back East to follow my dreams of living in New York City - I am a bundle of mixed emotions, but most of all excited! If anything, I hope this post leaves you with the extra confidence that you can take chances, challenge the unknown, and listen to where your heart truly is. So much more to come... xx
