Drum Roll Please...

By this weekend, I'll officially be a Virginia resident. More importantly, my husband will be back from his yearlong Korea tour. It's FINALLY here.

I can't help but feel bittersweet. I'm leaving NYC the place that really shaped me into who I am today. I've met some incredible lifelong friends and experienced a lot of new things here. I'm sad to be leaving my home for the last ten years, but I'm excited to begin a new chapter in my life.

When I think about where my husband got assigned, I consider myself lucky (although, I was secretly hoping that we would have been placed somewhere in Texas...) because Fort Belvoir is really not that far from NYC. If I have an itch for NYC, it won't be hard to visit. My friends would also have a reason to travel down to the DC-area.

My career is also being completely rerouted - not in a bad way. I'm going to be transitioning out of working in an office/firm environment to a home office. Because of the military lifestyle, I've set my focus to work freelance and/or remotely. The beauty of my career, it really be done anywhere. I love PR and I plan to continue developing my work skills - where ever the military takes me. Plus, I do have some awesome writing gigs that I truly enjoy (as well as this blog!).

Here I go folks! I'm going to embark on my first PCS journey soon!
