This is definitely one of the most exciting yet gut-wrenching posts I've ever written...
Today I put in my 4-week notice at work because I have decided to move to the Big Apple! This is exciting because of all the adventures that await but gut-wrenching because I have only ever lived in Reno (we are talking almost 25 years, and yes I stayed here for college) and I have never done something this gutsy before (picking up and moving without a job, without an apartment and only knowing one person in NYC really well). Basically I am chasing my dreams. My family thinks I'm absolutely insane (but is supportive at the same time) but I truly feel like this is something I need to do.
I don't know what's going to happen to TheRightShoes (because as you may or may not have figured out, I take all my own pictures and I'm not sure how cool it is to trek around NYC with a tripod posing for yourself... :] ) but I hope this move improves the blog and opens more doors for me.
So, for all of you living in, near or visiting NYC please shoot me an e-mail! I'd love to meet up and get to know you! For everyone else, I hope you follow me on my journey. I can't wait to share :).
And hence the title of the post... My Backyard to the Big Apple.
6 weeks and counting!
