Samantha Chic: Living // Made up my mind to make a new start...


Living // Made up my mind to make a new start...

So, instead of my regular Wednesday outfit posts, I've got some big news to announce today... I am fulfilling a lifelong dream of mine and moving across the country! I'm leaving my home in Pennsylvania on Nov. 1 and moving to Southern California specifically.

This is something I've wanted to do my whole life, not because I'm looking for fame or fortune or anything, but because I've always felt like it is one of the few places where I'm meant to be. It's a feeling deep down inside that I can't really explain. When I visited the state at 17, that feeling was confirmed and I've been working to get back there ever since.

In the past nine years, I've applied to countless colleges and jobs in California, but either nothing panned out or something came up in my personal life here in PA. For the first time though, it feels like making a big change is actually feasible -- I finally have savings, I don't have kids or a mortgage, my car is paid off, etc.

But one thing I've learned in the past few months is that there really isn't any time like the present to start living the life you want to live. Ryan was extremely nervous when I pitched this idea to him, but he's also realized that if you keep waiting for the "right time," it's never going to materialize -- there's always going to be something.

So, we're going on this grand adventure! I don't know what these next few chapters of my life will bring, but I know I'm excited to see them unfold. 

With all this being said, my blog posting and content will probably be a little irregular in the next few weeks and I might be taking a hiatus from the blog all together in early November just so we can focus on the move and getting settled.

I'll be sure to post updates along the way though about our trip across the country, and you can follow me on all my social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat - code below) to see more behind the scenes of our move.

Thanks to each and every one of you for reading and following along with me on this journey we call life...

Let's keep in touch...
