Happy Wednesday loves!
I normally don't get this personal or in-depth, but I have some exciting news to share with you all today! I'm moving to South Carolina today for Physician Assistant School!!

Two and a half years ago, I graduated college and moved back home- unsure of what I was meant to do for my career. I got a full-time medical job to gain experience, but got into a funk because I missed college, my friends, my independence, etc. Now I'm not saying that I'm not extremely grateful for my parents allowing me to move back in with them, while I figured out my next steps, but it wasn't the easiest adjustment. Thankfully, Amy was in a similar boat- finishing college and living at home, too! A large majority of our friends no longer lived in our hometown and were off, with careers- enjoying their independence- so I'm very fortunate to have had her support and understanding! We both researched and explored the idea of having a blog together (throughout college we were both were obsessed with so many bloggers- and still are!) I mean, what else were we going to do with our free time?! We began working every weekend on starting our website and shooting outfit pictures to create content. We spent countless hours interacting with other bloggers on Instagram and gaining an audience. Soon, this blog became such a fun hobby and developing (very small) business that we could share! When I reflect back on this time between college and grad school, I realize how much this little blog kept me busy, happy, and allowed me to explore a creative outlet, as well as gave me marketing and business experience- which I never imagined I'd have or be interested in before. I'm not trying to boast, or claim that we've made it big- because we in no way have! We're still very small bloggers comparatively, who just love this hobby of ours that we created. I just wanted to share how this little fashion blog really made a difference during this transition period in my life, as dramatic as that may seem. I've never worked harder at anything than I did to get accepted into Physician Assistant school, which is why I'm thankful that during the many struggles and hard times- I had this blog to fall back on.  Pursuing a career in the medical field is what I'm meant to do and I'm SO excited to begin that journey- but blogging has become my favorite hobby and something I want to continue. I know I will have wayyy less free time to create content or blog, but I'm going to try my best!  As always, thank you so much for your support and for continuing to stop by! I hope you'll continue to follow along- with both of our adventures and lives!

xo, amy & hannah
