A lot has happened since that singular post I made last year when I brought my website back online. The biggest thing is that Joe proposed to me in October of last year and of course I said yes.

The other thing is that we made plans to move out to Washington together but we had put it off since it wasn’t feasible for his job at the time. But in July we decided to move by March 2020 and stuck with that goal. It’s been a hectic couple of months but we managed to settle on an apartment in Everett, Washington! I also found a store to transfer to for Starbucks and I’ll remain a shift supervisor there as well, so I’m happy for that.

March 2nd officially be my last day of being an Illinois resident. It’s going to be bittersweet as I have some family out here along with my coworkers and friends. But I’m more excited to move to Washington as I fell in love with Seattle and surrounding areas back in Fall 2018.

Goodbye, Chicago!
