It starts as a the faintest of feelings.
Like a single strand of hair that brushes across your face as a breeze wafts in through the window. It’s so small, it almost doesn’t even exist. You may ignore it at first, but as the moments accumulate, you notice that feeling building within you. It gets stronger and stronger until you can no longer suppress it. No longer is this just an idea of something you might possibly want to do. It’s something you must do.
Lovely readers, dear friends, a new adventure is calling my name. I’ve always been the type to follow my heart. Rarely do I do anything with a solid plan in mind. I don’t know that I could do that. It just wouldn’t be me.
Almost exactly two years ago, I moved to Philadelphia from New York to get started on this dream job of mine. A dream job that turned into a whole new life. It honestly has been a dream come true. My life has been changed in the greatest of ways. I wouldn’t give this back for anything. In just a few days, I’ll be heading back to New York for a bit. A few months I think — the summer, maybe. Back to my roots, to reground myself. Then, I’ll be off to somewhere else.
Exactly what I’ll be doing I can’t be sure. I have to wait and see where my heart leads me. I’ve always wanted to open up and online shop, selling some beautiful objects I come across but can’t possibly keep all for myself, as well as my own little creations. I think I’ll start there. Maybe it’ll be well received, maybe it’ll be a total bust. I have no way of knowing until I try it out. I’ve also always had this dream of being some sort of host on a TV show or something. Why? I have no idea. I don’t even own a TV. But I love to be totally ridiculous and really freaking weird, and to make people laugh in the process. Again, I’ll just wait and see. :)
One thing I do know, though, is that I’m certainly not ready to totally leave Free People. Absolutely not. Wherever I go, whatever I end up doing, I’m still planning to very much be a part of this blog of ours. I unfortunately won’t be quite as involved, but you can expect to hear from me here and there throughout the week, every week, until I reach a point in my journey where that’s no longer doable — if that ever even happens. I love you all too much to say goodbye for good!
So yes, I’ll still be around, but I wanted to take this time to say thank you to you all. These past two years have been a whirlwind of experiences for me. I can’t put in to words the gratitude I have for everything this opportunity at Free People has given me — and you guys are a gigantic part of that. What would I do without your support? I can’t tell you how much joy we all get from reading your comments and seeing you partake in the different contests we do — whether here, on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook… anywhere. And if you ever get the thought that we don’t click the links when you share your personal blogs with us, you better think again. ;) So please, keep reading, keep sharing your thoughts with us, and keep your suggestions coming! We love you all.
But, as I said, I’m certainly not leaving this blog. So… I’ll be back in a few days with my next post!
