I’m thrilled to officially share that I moved to Jackson on Thursday! (Mississippi if you need further clarification lol) I had been wanting to tell y’all for months, but I knew as soon as I did, something would backfire! So I decided to wait until it actually happened, and I semi settled into my new apartment! A few of you sent messages asking if I was because I started sharing way more home decor, which I thought was pretty funny. Hahah! That’s the thing I’m most excited about is designing the space and decorating for the holidays! I can’t wait to get a Christmas tree up in the living room! 🙂
You might be wondering the reason why I moved, and several factors weighed in on my decision! Of course I would have loved to go someplace like Nashville or Dallas, but Mississippi is home! Not to mention, a lot of my friends and some family are here. It’s only an hour and a half from Laurel (my hometown), so it’s easy to make a day trip if I need to! Like meeting up with my mom to take photos. One day, I’m hiring her to be my personal assistant I swear! Hahaha.
Anyways, most of you know I moved back to Laurel after graduating college, which was NOT planned! I had interviewed and received a job offer in Birmingham, but I knew that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I made the decision to go home and work on growing Sassy Southern Blonde, which has paid off in ways I never could have imagined! My mom was my biggest cheerleader through it all though, and she believed in me enough to let me try this whole blogging thing out when I wasn’t making any money.
With all of that being said, staying in Laurel forever was never my plan either! After a year and a half post college, I finally felt ready (financially and mentally lol) to take the next step and move out! I’m actually living with my college friend Lauren, and I love it. When my parents and brother moved me in, it was like they were dropping me off for freshman year all over again! Lol. It still hasn’t actually hit me that I’ve moved, but it never did then either! I guess I’m good at adapting to change? At least in certain situations… Hahaha.
I am SO excited and ready for this new chapter, and I want to thank y’all for always being so kind and encouraging with everything I do! The success I’ve found with blogging is only because of y’all. There’s no way to adequately express how much it means when you read a blog post, buy something through my link, or just send a sweet DM! This journey might have started two years ago, but it’s only just begun! 🙂
