Southern Ways: Vol. 1

January 7, 2015

Well, I’ve been an official “southerner” for a little over a week and my goodness have I learned (and picked up) a lot already. It’s almost scary. But like a good kind of scary, in that my heart feels calm and genuinely happy, even with the cultural shock 😉  Things I’ve learned. People absolutely move at a slower pace here. This means walking, talking, driving, ordering food, explaining a situation, giving directions, did I say driving?? Whew! Lots of slow drivers…

A Christmas Vlog

December 16, 2014

Do you guys know what today is?? It’s MOVING DAY. Prayers are appreciated, Lord have mercy, ha! I cannot believe it’s finally here. Just picture me doing the Raise the Roof dance by myself in our empty Chicago apartment. (What. People still Raise the Roof, they do.)  Today, I’m joining Faith and the rest of you fabulous and brave gals for The Golden Vlog Series: Christmas edition.  (Video on Vimeo) After watching this back (and convincing myself not to delete…

December 12, 2014

I’ve been dying to do a Currently post for some time now but realized I’d have to edit this one to more of a “Lately” post, considering all of my answers to a Currently post would end in, “driving” or “packing.” For. the. LOVE, some days it feels as though I will never be through with the packing of boxes! The good news is that we move on TUESDAY so the end is in sight. Praise. Until then though, let…

November 24, 2014

I had grand plans of sharing my most recent photos for the series, as well as spending hours (yes, I seriously had hoped for that) catching up on all of my favorite blogs and none of it happened. BUT, don’t assume this means I was just lounging around and watching Cops all day either (although I feel like I need a day like…

Box Wars.

October 23, 2014

Yesterday, we went to collect boxes and were robbed by a sweet mean old lady on a motorized cart in a Subaru station wagon. We didn’t even see it coming. Moving is serious business, guys. And if you live in the city and are in a race to collect free boxes from other people, moving becomes even more serious…. it becomes a challenge… and can get pretty cut throat. Don’t believe me? Let’s discuss.  Christian and I spent more than…

Some pretty big news…

August 6, 2014

I am SO excited to finally and officially share this news with you all 🙂 Christian and I will be moving to Nashville at the end of this year!! While this has been a little dream in our hearts for some time now, things began to naturally fall into place during our last trip to TN and we feel it is now time for this next adventure.  I think with any move comes the obvious- excitement, but it’s also a bit…
