The other day it dawned on me that I haven't shared much about myself since starting the blog. Well, other than I'm obsessed with design. Several times I have mentioned "the big move", so I'll start there.
My husband Jimmy (a.k.a. Bubba) and I have spent most of our lives on the southern coast of North Carolina. Last year we decided to shake things up a bit when Bubba went in search of a new job. In August that search brought us to a quiet little college town on the southern border of Pennsylvania. Moving over 500 miles from beloved friends and family was a big deal for us. Because he had always worked in the family business, Bubba had never lived away from his family and I've never been located more than an hour or two from my own family. As heartbroken as we were to tear ourselves away from the life we had always loved, the move was necessary for our future. Life is always changing and we had to change with it. So, we packed up our home and three dogs and hit the road.
Now, having been in our new town for a couple months, I thought I would share a few things I'm beginning to warm up to. I love a small town just as much as the next person. They never run short on character. Since the move, weekends have been spent exploring our new little town and discovering what it has to offer. The historic downtown area caters mainly to the college students, but manages to still have a little something for everyone. The major plus for me is that there are neat little antique and vintage shops tucked in corners of downtown! I had to throw in this picture from an alley in the historic district. Only in a small mountain town would you find the below image.
