If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m currently at the biggest crossroad of my entire life. In less than one week, I will be getting on a plane with all of my belongings and moving from Brussels to Wisconsin. As someone that suffers with flight anxiety, I haven’t really been able to think past the flights to the USA. But, in reality, what comes after is what makes this period of my life truly remarkable.

The next month holds so much love, joy, and celebration. I’d throw it all into one sentence, but I happen to dislike really long sentences, so let’s try a list.

  • I’m flying to Chicago via Iceland, Dylan is picking me up from there for a four hour road trip to our new little home. As I said, I have really bad flight anxiety so my thoughts are preoccupied with my two dumb flights.
  • Dylan and I are taking the next few days to furnish said new home. Throws, candles, pillows – I’m ready.
  • I turn 24 on August the 13th, and I finally get to celebrate my birthday with Dylan. We’ve missed too many birthdays whilst being in a long distance relationship!
  • My bestest friend in the entire world is, a) coming to stay with me and Dylan for a lil while, and b) GOT ORDAINED AND WILL PERFORM OUR CEREMONY!
  • Oh yeah, did I mention that I’M GETTING MARRIED ON AUGUST 19th?! When I said this month is life-changing, I really meant it.
  • I have incredible family and friends visiting for our little ceremony, and then Dylan and I are celebrating with everyone we love at a bar with lots of drinks and appetizers.


It’s both exciting and sad to close this chapter of my life and move onto the next one. These past two years in Brussels have been great for my creativity, my writing, and especially for my coffee consumption. But, I’m ready for the amazing life that Dylan and I are going to build together. This blog will become a little bit more personal from here on out. I’m sure that we’ll have plenty of adventures, as well as cozy days in, that we would love to share with you!

As for the wedding, as I know a lot of you have questions – it’s going to be a bit different (surprise, surprise)! I thought that not planning a big elaborate wedding would mean less planning and dealing with little details, but a small wedding has just as much planning on the agenda. I’ve been extremely lucky to have the help of friends and family, and I’m so freaking excited for the big day when we can all celebrate love.

Great things are ahead! Here we go.
