I did it.

I know this is a cute face. It's actually my favorite face to make and the obvious choice for a "I'm a college graduate" photo.
Hi Friends! 
Long time no see. Sorry that I've been so absent from the blogging world these past few weeks. Which means that we have A LOT of catching up to do!

Most importantly, I am officially a college graduate! 18+ years of schooling behind me and for the first time, I am no longer a "student". I'll admit, it feels a bit strange to be done with school for maybe, forever. But at the same time, I love the freedom that it brings to go anywhere and do anything. 

I also moved out of my house in Seattle this past week. For those of you who don't know, I willing be moving to Australia in January! Packing up my things and moving out of my house was a bittersweet experience. Living in Seattle with my closest friends has been such a wonderful part of my life. It has changed me and molded me into an adult and I'm sad that this part of my life in coming to a close. But there is MUCH to look forward to and it is time to move on to the next adventure. 

And as I am no longer in school, I have lots of exciting ideas for this little blog of mine!
Thank you, again, for sticking around and encouraging me these past few weeks. I am beyond ready to step back into this wonderful community just in time for the Christmas season!

So stay tuned for the next chapter of On A Whim!

Much love,
