New Adventures

  "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

These words have never felt more relatable then they do right now.

A little less then two weeks ago my husband accepted an incredible and well deserved job offer. However, the job is 5 1/2 hours from where we live now on Long Island, which means we have to... MOVE.

Next Friday, September 19th, we will be moving to Alexandria, Virginia. 
There are a lot of emotions that come along with moving and for me, stress is the most prominent one as of late. Between finding movers, packing, signing a lease on a place we won't even see until move in,etc. there is a lot going on.

As exciting as it is to have a new adventure, in an entirely new place, I would be lying if I said I was feeling excited about it. Long Island has been my home for 26 years. The only time I have lived elsewhere was my two year stint at Temple University in Philadelphia, and as much as I loved living there, Long Island is and always will be my home.

On the other hand: I am a creature of habit.
I wake up at the same time 7 days a week, I eat pretty much the same foods for weeks at a time, I have been in the same gym classes for 4 years now. 
I like my schedule. 
I like knowing what my day/week/month is going to look like before it happens.
The slightest change often throws a wrench in my life to the point I feel like everything is spiraling out of control and that tends to lead to anxiety.

If a small change can do this, can you imagine what I am dealing with right now uprooting my entire life, leaving my family, friends, job, gym, home?! 
It is probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life so far, but I am making it work.

I have been keeping up with my gym routine and daily vlogging as consistently as possible but of course my blog has been put on the back burner, as it has been a lot in the last year. Once I am moved into my new home I really want to get back on a more consistent blogging schedule along with creating more YouTube videos for my readers and followers.  

For now, I am going through the motions and emotions of moving. 
Like life, it is a process.
 It will all work out in the end the way it's supposed to.
[I am repeating this to myself countless times a day]

Here's to new adventures!


  1. Congrats on the life change and good luck on the move! Alexandria is a beautiful area and so close to DC. I don't know how the traffic compares to Long Island but it's crappy near DC.
