If you didn’t already catch it on facebook or twitter…
I’m trading oysters for lobster
humidity for blizzards
palmetto trees for pine trees
the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge for the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge
Sullivan’s Island for The Cape
and the Panthers for the Patriots.
Because I’m moving to Boston! Yep, it’s time to make a move. In case you didn’t know, I was born in Concord, MA and grew up in Acton, MA until I was 13. My parents moved us to Charleston and I’ve been here ever since. I really love this city, but I’ve simply outgrown it. Not having lived anywhere else as an adult, I’ve been longing for a change for a couple years. Truthfully, I’ve thought about this for so long, but never had the courage to make it happen.
My primary reasons for moving are personal and career growth. I’ve exhausted my resources in Charleston and crave some anonymity in a new city. When Lucy moved to NYC and Danielle moved to Charlotte, my heart ached for them, but more than anything, I admired their guts to pack up and move in order to better their life. And now I’m ready to do the same.
Don’t worry — the blog is definitely coming with me! I’m excited to document this major event and look forward to creating memories with new friends, new restaurants, and of course, my family. As far as my plans go, I will be staying with my Aunt Tina, Uncle Matt, and cousins Maddie and Mick until I figure out where I want to live. I’ve been applying for plenty of jobs (there are so many compared to Charleston, it’s ridiculous) and already have a couple things in the works. Though it may seem sudden, this has been a long time coming. My best friend Nancy and I are driving up on March 30, will stop in DC, and my first official day as a Massachusetts resident will be April 1, 2014.
