New Beginnings and Feeling Nostalgic

Oh goodness, I've been quiet for so long that I feel like I have a whole other life to write about and I don't even know where to start!  The past few weeks have been a blur of working and preparing for my move to Savannah.  I arrived Thursday evening and I can't believe that I get to live in this beautiful city for the next four years. 

Today I was thinking about Indiana and remembering the dance party that I threw in my backyard last week. I wanted to have a time when I could say goodbye to my friends all at one time and make it special.  I was looking through the images on my computer today and it's making me feel slightly nostalgic for last week.  It was such a magically fun night and I thought that I'd share it with you.  It's so strange to think that just a week ago I was saying goodbye to all of my good friends in Indiana and now I'm in a new state.  

Also, several weeks back I had the lovely pleasure of meeting Erin from Design for Mankind.   I couldn't believe when I found out that Erin lives literally 10 minutes from in my house in Indiana!  She had contacted me about modeling for the promo film for her new website Clementine Daily that launched Wednesday!  Such an exciting new website!   If you've ever met Erin you'll know just how nice and welcoming she is and that's the same feeling that I get when reading Clementine Daily.  If you get the chance stop by Clementine and check out Erin and the incredible team of writers! 

Right now I'm unpacking and putting together my new room, but I have so many new projects to show you from this past summer.  My first class doesn't start till next week so I'm hoping to post a couple projects before then.  I can't wait to share more with you!

 I hope your summer was lovely!

  3. Being a fellow hoosier I wanted to bid you farewell but having lived near Savannah years ago I know that you are going to love all of the wonderful sights and smells, joined in with true southern hospitality. The historic district is beautiful, all the charms of the south. I wish you wonderful adventures as you begin your new life, sitting on the veranda of a southern mansion , rocking quietly while you sip your sweet tea, watching the spanish moss gracefully move with the gentle breeze. Have fun and live your dreams!

  4. How exciting! i hope the next 4 years are fulfilling and you learn lots and come out with experience and the world at your feet!

  6. What a gorgeous dance floor! Speaking of Savannah, have you read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"? It's a fun read. Savannah's absolutely lovely; my hubby and I spent a hot afternoon taking refuse in its many grassy squares.

    1. Hi Rebecca! Ohhh I have heard of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Someone suggested it to me not too long ago and it's been on my list of top reads ever since. I will definitely see what I can do about checking that one off my list! Thanks for suggesting it! :)
