Big Announcement

I’d like to take a moment to make a big announcement.
I’m leaving New York City.

Come July I will be returning to my hometown in sunny, sunny Florida! Home of flip-flops and shorts!

I’d start at the beginning, but I guess it doesn’t matter how a match is lit. Because once the fire is started, it spreads. That’s how it’s been since the moment I decided to move back to Florida, where I’m from…home. The reasons are ever growing and changing. But like a fire inside, it started as a small spark and now it rages on, in a good way!Β And the most amazing part of it all is that I know with every fiber of my being that it’s the right decision for me. It’s God’s decision for me. I don’t think I’ve felt that way about something since I packed up and moved up here to the big city.

This means that Nerd in the City will be moving with me and I’ll get to see what that means for this platform I’ve had on which to share my thoughts for the past 4 years. I love writing and I never would have discovered that if I’d never moved here.
I have a list of things a mile long, things that I will never miss about New York. But I want to focus on what this city has given me. Because I feel equipped for the next stage of my life. And I am a stronger person for the struggles I’ve had in this tough city. And I cannot wait to return to it with fresh eyes and a fresh heart one day.

I still have 4+ months left to enjoy New York and all the treasures it has to offer. A chance to properly say goodbye. And a chance to know that I have made the right decision for the next stage of my life. What a gift!
