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! :)
