LIFE | FAREWELL, FAR HILLS + MOVING TO COLORADO TO START A NEW CHAPTER


HAPPY THURSDAY, BLOGLAND!

It's been a very busy and long last few days of packing and preparing for the movers on the east coast side of my big move.

As of yesterday, May 24th, most of my life was successfully loaded onto a moving truck and the team of guys from mayflower were truly fantastic!

I wanted to let you know that I'll be OFFLINE FOR A BIT WHILE TRAVELING TO NEW YORK FOR 2 WEDDINGS THIS WEEKEND, FOLLOWED bY A road trip back down to Virginia, before my big DRIVE out to NEW MEXICO and ARIZONA before ending up in COLORADO to start my new chapter.

it is a very bitter-sweet tine for me moving to a new state, while also saying goodbye to my childhood home of 30 years in far hills, new jersey, which my parents are selling.  It was an incredible and beautiful town in which to grow up, and I have such wonderful memories. I just hope the new owners time is as magical as mine.

IN THE MEANTIME, I'LL BE DOCUMENTING MY ADVENTURES OVER ON MY INSTAGRAM VIA PICTURES AND INSTASTORY fun if you wish to follow along.  Also, I'll continue to document things here in my Destination Denver series.

Thank you for your patience, sweet comments and messages, and I hope you will continue to follow along . . . i'M HOPEFUL THAT big things await!

TRAVEL DIARY: DESTINATION DENVER | CHAPTER 2 - FACING FORWARD + UPDATE


HAPPY THURSDAY, BLOGLAND!

I'm in the midst of packing and have 2 weddings back in New York City before my official move westward officially begins 2 weeks from today.

So, it's time for chapter 2 of my destination denter Travel Diary series.

You can go back and read chapter 1, if interested and you missed it, and I hope you will continue to join me on my somewhat unknown journey.

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 . . .
