I don't write a lot about my personal background on this blog, but I was born in Wyoming, grew up in Ohio, and currently live in Pennsylvania. While Harrisburg PA is a fine city for many people, I never felt like it was quite right for me. After all- I am obsessed with warm weather and I love a big city with lots of sky scrapers- Harrisburg doesn't exactly have those sunny days and big city amenities I am looking for.
A few years ago, Matt & I went for a visit to Charlotte, North Carolina. After spending the weekend there, I felt like I finally found "my city." One night when we were having a beer at Ri Rah Irish Pub in Uptown Charlotte, Matt & I looked at each other and said- "Let's move here!" Every time we visited Charlotte since that weekend, we loved it even more.
Here I am with Queen Charlotte, the city's namesake.
Here are a few things to expect:
Cooking Healthy for One: Since I am moving to Charlotte before my husband, I will be a lone wolf for a bit. You can follow along as I cook healthy, easy, meals for myself.
Eating Healthy while Traveling: For the first few years of my new job, I'll be traveling often. Even spending a few months living abroad (!!!!). I'll be trying to balance eating new yummy food with keeping my healthy lifestyle.
Charlotte Restaurants: I'll be exploring my new city, and can't wait to try all the new restaurant options.
I have a busy few days of apartment hunting coming up, but I'll catch you again soon friends!
