{big news}

This coming August,  I will be moving 
to Chicago for 2 years!!!!!!!

I have known that a move was on the horizon since December when Chris started getting back acceptances from the graduate schools he had applied to for his MBA.  After the final round acceptance letters went out and he took a few visits to the city, we officially decided that Chris would choose Kellogg at Northwestern University to get his MBA this Fall.

We could not be more excited to get to explore this awesome new city together for the next two years.  We even signed a lease on a great two bedroom place back in March!  While I will miss our friends here, our loft and the amazing times we have had in Los Angeles over the past 4 years, I cannot wait to see what this next chapter of our lives will hold for us!!


Let's meet up when I get there!  Let's have some drinks, eat some food and you can give me recommendations on the best Chicago has to offer.

 While I have treasured my time working in Licensing at Junk Food Clothing for the past 4 years, I am taking this move as an opportunity to shift my career in a more creative direction (in addition to expanding this blog and my Etsy shop).  Over the past couple years, it has become clear to me that I have real interest and passion for event planning and design.  I think there would be no better time to go on a new career path into this industry than our move to this amazing new city and I would gladly welcome any advice those currently in this industry are willing to give out.

Let's hang out!! You all have just shy of three months to get some quality time spent with us. 
(Oh and don't you worry because I already decided on the theme for our going away party...)
