4 years later

It was four years ago today that a California girl decided to take a chance and move to the Midwest. I knew a few bloggers, my real estate agent, and her friend’s friend. That’s it. No friends. No family. Just me and my dog.

Somehow, four years managed to come and go in the blink of an eye, and in the best possible way, I cannot seem to recognize my life today. In the past year, I moved to a new neighborhood. Relaunched The Everygirl. Started a product line. Got through surgery with the help of my Chicago friendsโ€“people who are like family to me. Made new friends. Great new friends. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been a wonderful four years, and no matter where I end up, Chicago will always hold a very special place in my heart. Happy 4 years, Chicago.

    Congrats on the 4-mark! ๐Ÿ™‚ Those photos are beautiful.

    I'm moving out of state for the first time this month, and this post definitely excites me and makes me curious to see how that will become my new home, too! Cheers!
