TRAVEL DIARY | MOVING DAY, WEDDING IN NYC + WEEKEND WITH FAMILY IN VA


HAPPY Tuesday, BLOGLAND!

It's been a busy last couple of weeks filled with mixed emotions that quite honestly haven't fully sunk in as of yet.

i was back in new jersey helping my parents pack up and fully move out of my childhood home of 30 years, which was a project in and of itself.

after the move, i was off to nyc for a quick whirlwind weekend of weddings, one in gramercy park and the other central park, which were both just lovely!

Finally, it was back down to Virginia for a couple days with family and to see my sister perform in the Manassas chorale before heading on my big road trip westward WITH A STOP IN NEW MEXICO TO VISIT MORE FAMILY.

more HIGHLIGHTS AND travel diary posts from the road coming soon!

CHAPTER 2   |   FACING FORWARD



Only a couple weeks lie in front of me before I say a very bitter-sweet and difficult goodbye to a large part of my life and wonderful youth.

My parents are selling my childhood home of 30 years and moving west. While I am taking a large leap of faith, yet again, and moving to another new city. All in hopes of finding what my heart desires most, growing my Sensible Style business and continuing to help others in some form.

Those close to me know that, after a magical summer in Aspen last year and falling in love with Colorado, I did quite a bit of research before making my final decision to make a new life for myself in Denver.

It stood out as a great place for someone my age who is looking for all that I am. While also being only a 6 hour drive, in one direction, from my younger sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew and 6 hours, in another direction, from my parent's new home that they just finished building.

Needless to say, packing up my childhood bedroom, and sorting through all the memories from the past, has signified a challenging end of one great chapter and the clean, fresh start of a new chapter in my adult life.

It's not going to be easy, this I know, but I do think it will challenge me, something I need to keep that fire burning beneath me. Through it all, I'm doing my best to keep facing forward to move onward and upward. 

Hopefully, one day soon, I'll look back and realize that I have landed just where I'm supposed to and see how it all led me to true love and happiness.

"Just because your path is different doesn't mean you're lost."

Stay tuned for Chapter 3, which will be from on the road while heading cross-country with endless adventures along the way . . .
