I've got an announcement...and it's a big one!

You may or may not know that currently I live in Kansas. Go ahead, make your Dorothy & Toto jokes.   I'll wait.

Everyone finished now? ;-) Well anyways, I've decided to do some nail art, commemorating my home state. 




On my thumb and ring finger I have blue and white gingham (for Dorothy's dress), on my pointer/pinky I've done some wheat waving in the wind, and on my ring finger I have Dorothy's ruby pumps. See even I had to acknowledge the Wizard of Oz in my mani. ;-) 

So the reason I've done the Kansas nail art, is this. As of last Friday, I finished up my last day at work, and in a little less than three weeks I will be moving to New York City. 




No joke people! We are headed to the big city, and there are some exciting things in the works! I'm currently unemployed, granted I'm in day 1, but it's a weird feeling, and the next few weeks are focused on selling my house (please keep your fingers crossed/pray/send good juju, etc), packing up and getting rid of stuff, and enjoying what little time I have left with family/friends before I leave.  To help with the transition, I have eleven lovely ladies who will be guest posting. I'm so excited for you to see what they've come up with. 

Have you ever undertaken a cross country move? Any advice?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. The Wizard of Oz is the first thing people think when you hear Kansas. It has to be included. '

      I'm really pumped about NYC, there is just so much to do before we get there.
