Fresh start

Dress and belt: LOFT;
Sweater: Faded Glory;
Shoes and necklace: gifts,
from Philippines.
How I've worn the dress: here.

Sorry I've been so MIA the last few days -- things have gotten so busy over here, and I've been trying to keep ahead of it all.

I do have some news, and the biggest part of it is this: Jeremiah and I are planning to move back to Athens at the beginning of August. He's been accepted into a master's program in statistics up there, so we've decided that instead of us living in between Athens and Atlanta, we'd much rather move back to Athens for the time being.
Which means that the last couple of weeks have been busy: we've been tying up loose ends with work and looking for a new apartment. We signed for one yesterday and it's going to be bigger than the one we have now, so we'll have lots of opportunities to spread out and decorate more. You have no idea how excited I am to have an office, and extra closets for my thrifting finds...

I'm excited too, although what it means for me is a little more vague. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue working my retail job (the opportunity to transfer exists, though), but I might for the first couple of months as we get settled, and continue my job search up there. It's been a little overwhelming the last couple of weeks, but mostly I am really excited for a new start.

Anyways, the next couple of weeks will mean wrapping things up in our town, and doing things we never got around to doing while we've been here, like eating at certain restaurants and the like. I'll be sure to document some of it. I've gotten so attached to the farm park, so it'll be hard to not take my pictures there everyday, but I've been scoping out new places in Athens, which I think will be fun.

Since it's my day off, I'll be catching up on my blogroll. I've really missed you all!
signature1 by you.
