Moving to the Windy City

photo by Travis Haughton

Today I’m so excited to share some really big news. I have accepted a new job in Chicago, and Travis and I will be moving there near the end of the month!

The position is very similar to what I do now — I will be managing a fashion studies collection at a college there, and I start before the month is out. It’s a very fast transition, but I couldn’t be happier.

I will miss the people I’ve worked with and met in North Dakota. We’ve lived here for two years, and, while it took awhile to feel settled, we were starting to develop great relationships and get involved in the community. It is hard to say goodbye.

But this opportunity will help both of us in our careers, return us to a city we used to live in and that we love, and get us closer to friends and family we’ve been so far from.

As you may have noticed from this week already, posting will be a little lighter during the next few weeks as we move, get settled, and I learn the ropes of my new job. Hope you forgive me.

And now, onward to Chicago!
