Today is a travel post becaaaause…. EEEK!!! I leave at 4am (in four hours) for NYC! And this time it is a one way ticket 🙂 I am literally so excited I probably won’t be able to sleep for those four hours so I think I am going to pull an all nighter. When I was 12 years old I begged my mom to let me go to boarding school in New York City and I can’t believe that I will finalllllly be living there as of tomorrow. It is crazy because it all happened WAY fast. We knew we were moving a couple months ago but everyone said real estate goes so fast so our broker told us not to come until late November/Early December. We flew up there on Thanksgiving day and looked throughout the weekend and ended up finding an apartment we LOVED! We of course had to go through all of the madness of filling out 10 million forms, giving tax returns, our first born child, etc. (jokes, but really its a nightmare) and I was crossing my fingers we would get it and then I found out DURING the finale of the Victoria’s Secret show that we had been approved and got the apartment – I was FUHREAKING OUT. I am in love with the apartment and cannot wait to get there and start decorating 🙂 For those who asked if we are bringing Chauncey – yes we are!! We are actually going to be living right by the park just for that little stinker.
A lot of you have asked WHY we are moving… so let me sort of explain. First and foremost, David and I have been working on something that I am sooo beyond excited to be able to share BUT I can’t yet (I know, anticlimactic and a total buzzkill) I am kind of superstitious so I feel like if I talk about it now I am going to jinx something so I am going to wait until it is totally finished to tell you guys. Another reason we are moving is because of my blog I have been able to have some amazing opportunities presented to me and everything kind of goes on in NYC so we are going out there to kind of follow some of my dreams. We are going to put David’s work on hold for the time being and go after these ventures we are currently working on. And honestly I feel so blessed to have David – he is so amazing for supporting me and helping me achieve all these wild dreams I have and helping me bring all my ideas to life. My blog sort of started because of my hair pictures and tutorials so in going to New York I will be focusing A LOT more on my YouTube and publishing regular tutorials. The blog will remain a mix of fashion/lifestyle/hair/etc. but I am going to focus a lot on my YouTube as well. Another reason is because we love to travel and I often travel for work and traveling out of Alabama is beyond a nightmare! It is so annoying and really rough tacking on at least two extra flights/layovers to any trip we take, especially since I take Atticus everywhere with me. I hate to act like I am keeping secrets and whatnot because I have always been super open on my blog but hopefully in a few months when I can tell you guys a little more of what we have been working on it will make more sense!
Also just want to say THANK YOU for all your comments and support through the years.. A lot of you have followed since I was dirt poor in college donating plasma and working part time to get by (lol). It really means everything to me!!! Xoxoxo
