Big News!

Big changes are happening in my life and they'll be happening very, very soon!  This Saturday will mark the day that my boyfriend is officially done with law school. After, what seems like, 3 very long years he will handed over a Juris Doctor degree Saturday afternoon. I couldn't be prouder of him. He's worked long and hard to get here and I can't wait to see him celebrate his big moment this weekend with both of our families. And with his graduation comes a brand new start for us; in Lexington, Kentucky. Yes, this girl and guy are headed back to our home state in the South! We are so excited to scout out a new place to live, start new jobs, and reconnect with family and friends we moved away from 3 years ago.

It will be sad to leave behind all the wonderful friends we've made here though, too. It breaks my heart to be leaving my job at Anthropologie, and all the talented and stylish friends I work and laugh with on a daily basis. I forsee many trips back up here to visit and shop with them. In the meantime, these next few days will be spent soaking up what I love about this city the most and making memories until my next trip here.

The other piece of news is a post-graduation get away. My boyfriend and I will be going away with his mom and her friend to the Dominican Republic for 6 days. A week of hot sun and laying by the pool sounds like pure heaven to me right now. So two kinds of packing are on my To-Do list this week:  pack up an apartment, and pack a suitcase of swimsuits and sun dresses. Not a bad trade off if you ask me.

This is going to be a great week. I hope your weeks are off to happy starts as well! xo

  1. So many good things all in one post! I was born in Dominican Republic so I might be a little biased when I say this but you will have an absolute BLAST over there. The beaches are absolutely beautiful and the people are tons of fun, especially in resorts since they cater to tourists by having shows and games. Congrats to your boyfriend for finishing up law school! I'm going to start law school in just 3 short months and I can't wait. :)

  2. I am quite new to your blog so I don't "know" you all that well yet, but congratulations on all of your news! Changes like that are always so exciting! And I am incredibly jealous of your amazing vacation plans, the beaches in the Dominican are absolutely gorgeous!
