I’ve been casually dropping lines about moving, but here’s the official news: I am moving to New York City!
Even before I first visited NYC, I was in love with the city. As “the city that never sleeps” and a fashion capital of the world, NYC always seemed so exciting. My first, second, and third visits solidified my inkling… I belong in NYC. When I last visited in February, I grabbed breakfast with one of my girlfriends from college. She mentioned that her roommate would be moving in June and she was looking for a new roommate starting July 1st. It’s funny how things work out because my lease in Chicago was up at the exact same time. I called my mom after breakfast and said, “I think I’m moving to New York.” I mulled it over for a day or two, but I knew I was going to make the move. The timing was too perfect, how could I say no? I can’t believe it is finally happening, but I am beyond excited!
Remember all of my furniture and decor (here, here, and here) that I bought when I moved to Chicago? Well, it won’t fit in my new apartment. Movers are coming to load up all of my furniture and move it in to storage in my hometown on Wednesday. I’ll be leaving Chicago and heading back to my parents house on Thursday and then starting the 17 hour drive to New York City next Monday morning!
I’ll be tweeting and posting pictures as I go, but I’ve lined up some of my favorite Chicago & NYC bloggers to help me out while I’m moving half-way across the country and getting settled in my new home! Wish me luck.
PS – I hear there isn’t much closet space in NYC so I have a TON of stuff to get rid of before I move! I’m selling items on Poshmark so check out those listings if you’re interested!
