The Big Move

Oh, hello! Welcome to my first blog post.  I didn’t really know where to start with the first post.  Like, who do you talk to? But like most new things, it feels a bit strange until it isn’t so practice makes perfect, right? I feel like my first post should begin with the big move from our long time home of Memphis, Tennessee to Atlanta, Georgia July 2017.  My husband was offered an amazing job that required us to move almost 400 miles away.  Now, you and I don’t know each other very well (yet) but let me give you some background. I don’t like change. I am a Capricorn, a very steady Eddie. So the idea of leaving my job, my family, my friends should have been an instant red alarm, nope, no way, not happening.  But for whatever reason, I was supportive of this change from the beginning. And I would make the same decision in a heartbeat.  However..this transition has not been without meltdowns and what-have-I-done moments.  It was hard and continues to have its challenges.  Yes, it is a really cool opportunity to have a new city to explore and find new adventures.  But sometimes I crave the known.  I miss being able to drive to a destination and not need Apple maps.

During my random meltdowns, I turned to my favorite bloggers and Youtubers to make those moments not so heavy.  When I missed my friends and family the most, I found comfort in reading about how to make the best brownies(found it) or what face primer was going to change the world (still searching). So, thus this blog was created.

Looking for lemonade is a challenge to myself to remember not to be so hard on myself and to look at my life through a new, positive lens.  It may be cheesy but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth finding.

Thanks for reading!

Jess
