Some MAJOR news....

Remember the big announcement I told you guys about... well it's finally time to reveal it! We are....... moving!
 
our actual road trip route on our way back East!
4 years ago, we started planning our big move to the West Coast. We road tripped it across the country (one of the most fun things we've ever experienced together) and landed in Los Angeles. Now, 4 years later (almost exactly to the day) we're doing the exact same thing, but we're headed back East.
 
Yes, we are (very sadly) leaving LA and (very excitedly) heading home to North Carolina. We've been talking about it for a while, but talking isn't doing. And after Thanksgiving, we finally decided to see what doors would open if we started looking. It's actually kind of crazy what happened.. you know in that totally-cheesy-meant-to-be kind of way. Bill found an absolutely fantastic opportunity in my hometown of Raleigh and we're leaving California April 9th!
 
We'll eventually end up about 20 minutes away from my parents and I think that's probably my favorite part about this move. I'm also really excited about moving BAD to Raleigh. I think there will be some great opportunities to grow there. And I'm super pumped about finding new southern bloggers to have dates with! If you're a NC based blogger - I want to connect with you!!
 
I'm so incredibly bummed to be leaving this gorgeous city (it's going to be 80+ degrees today) but I'm so incredibly thankful for the past 4 years here. We've made so many wonderful friends, lived by the beach and truly enjoyed our time in Southern California. The good news? - we have many reasons to come back and visit.
 
So over the next 6 weeks come along for the ride as we say Goodbye to Los Angeles. We've got lots of trips planned, restaurants to visit and events to attend. You'll want to keep up with me on instagram, Facebook & Twitter for all the deets.  I can't wait to share the end of this journey and the beginning of our next with you. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! xo
