To The Next Chapter

Whelp, There are going to be several new changes in my life within the next few weeks.  Now that my family knows, I feel like I am free to share my news to the world: I'm moving!  With the exception of my 4 years in college, I have lived my whole life in Pennsylvania.  But now I am heading west, to begin a new adventure!  In truth, it is very bittersweet.

You see, I have this boyfriend that I have been dating for well over a year now, who relocated to Seattle.  When we began to date, I told myself that I would not do anything hastily, so if we could manage long distance dating for a year, I'd consider relocating.  When I first said it, I didn't realize how difficult that it would be: my family, friends, job and home are all in Pennsylvania.  However after the 1-year mark, I started to casually look for jobs and the week before Christmas, I applied for one on the outskirts of Seattle.

I never thought things would progress so quickly!  Within 3 weeks, I applied for this job, had a phone interview, had a job offer and subsequently, accepted it.  When God opens a door, He certainly throws it wide open!  The craziest part is that I am to start February 1st!  That gives me just enough time to give a 2-weeks notice and drive cross country for this new adventure!

But like I said, it is bittersweet.  Telling my family and closest friends has been difficult and thankfully we live in a world of modern technology, so it's easier to stay in touch, but it is still a change.  Still, I am taking this opportunity to live my life without regrets, so here is to the next chapter! :)



  1. I'm so excited for you!! I certainly understand the bittersweet nature of the move,.. But what an adventure is to come!! I hope the move continues to move smoothly!! & your trip out there is both fun & mostly uncomplicated!


  2. Thanks! I am getting more and more excited as it gets closer - 2 more days! But there is so much to do and I'm trying to spend as much time with friends and family before leaving. It will all get done though, eventually! :)
