Home is where your heart is...
It's not very often that I post personal things on this blog... But this is too exciting not to share with you guys!
Over for the past five years, Tyler and I have been living in Florida away from home, family and friends while building our life here in Saint Augustine. I always knew that we would eventually move back home to Charleston, but wasn't really sure when that would be. Tyler and I both knew where "home" actually was, but we dug deep to make the best of this life that we were currently living in Florida until the time was right to eventually move back. Well that time is now, and I am so excited to let you guys know we are making the big move next Friday (panic anxiety, so much to do) back to Charleston! Our house is almost sold (fingers crossed, our inspection is this Saturday), boxes are packed, the press has a moving plan, Riley's last day at school is next Friday (very sad and mixed feelings about that) and our life is changing... We are so ready for what the future holds next.
Family means everything to me... After Riley came into this world, everything sort of changed in the most amazing way possible. Our life became not all about us, there was another sweet little person that we were responsible for, there were more important things in life than just Tyler and I and our careers. I am so elated that Riley will now be surrounded by her grandparents and cousins and grow up in a city that is literally BURSTING with talent and promise. Life really is about love, family and the amazing experiences you live through are just the icing on the cake. We're ready for the next chapter in our lives, life is about adventure and we're about to seriously partake in what it means to really live our lives to the fullest.
So here's to amazing experiences: getting back to our roots, getting to see our family everyday, our sweet friends everyday, building a vegetable garden out on the tea farm, raising some chickens, swimming in farm ponds, living in our new house that we're renting, dreaming about building our new house out on Wadmalaw Island, and living the life that we so desperately wanted to live. Everything happens for a reason, right? So here we go you guys, Charleston bound!
