Friday Favorite | Goodbye Charleston…Hello Nashville

This is bittersweet. And hard to write. But exciting all at the same time. Sigh…

Moving isn’t easy. Change isn’t easy. But it’s important to move and experience new things. I moved to Charleston 4 years ago and it has been such an incredible experience. I’ll never forget driving here and thinking ‘My car is full of stuff. I’m moving to Charleston and I don’t have a job. I don’t have a place to live. What in the world am I doing?’ But it was also so exciting! I didn’t know what to expect and what my life would be like. If I had known how amazing my life would be for these 4 years I would have told myself to stop worrying. That’s the thing… you just don’t know what to expect when you move to a new place. And then life takes over and you find your way.

Theres something about Charleston that has become a part of who I am. I am so thankful for that. This place will always have a huge piece of my heart. And so because of that it makes me sad to leave. I’m sad to leave our friends. And I’m sad to leave the beach. But I remind myself that when I first moved here I was sad to leave my life in Knoxville. And I say all of this just to be very honest. Don’t get me wrong…I’m excited to move to Nashville! Our friends and family are there and we’ll be closer to my family. It’s going to be great. I get to start over with this business in a new city and I can’t wait to see what God has planned for my career as a photographer. I We have so much to look forward to.

Thank you to everyone who was a part of our life in Charleston. We’ll never forget you.

Just a side note– I was putting together this post yesterday right before we were leaving Charleston. Everything was packed. Everything but this computer. I was sitting on the floor in my office finishing this post and was going to schedule it for today. Then the power went out. And the water. We were being kicked out. Haha so now I sit in the kitchen at my in-laws house. We’re here. And about to unpack. What a whirlwind this has been. I’ve decided to post some iphone pictures from our move.

I can’t wait to explore this city! Nashville– we’re here…get ready!
