FINALLY I get to call Chicago home
Moving to Chicago was exciting, terrifying and a dream come true all at once! It was the start of my new adult life, and it was the beginning of a new chapter for my relationship. After two years of long distance, Jake and I were finally moving in together! It’s been an adjustment but he’s my best friend and we honestly work well together. I’ll do a post on living with a significant other soon, but for now, I want to focus on Chicago.
I first visited Chicago in October 2015. Jake and I had been long distance for four months at that point and it was the first time I was going to visit him. I have and will always be a city girl, but I was terrified to visit. I knew that Jake was going to live in Chicago and I was scared that if I didn’t like it then we didn’t have a future. No worries because I fell in love with it! It was a perfect mix of my home in Ohio and my home in Manhattan. I immediately knew this was the city for me and spent the next 18 months anxiously awaiting my move.
A week into living in Chicago I landed a job at a PR agency and I couldn’t be happier! It’s been a lot of changes recently (with getting engaged, getting hired, moving to Chicago and basically becoming an adult) but it’s been a blessing.
