Hello CHARLESTON

A new home...A new chapter...A new beginning! It is hard to believe that I moved to Charleston almost three weeks ago. We have arrived. We are settled (minus a couch and some outdoor patio furniture). We are HAPPY, HEALTHY, and GRATEFUL! As you all know, I have moved a lot. I have been all over this beautiful country learning, exploring, growing, and constantly searching for that special place I can call home. I refuse to settle, especially when it comes to my happiness; my personal life; and my professional life. It was time to move away from Nantucket and from the Northeast. It was time to move down south, where the sun is shining, the cost of living is cheaper and embrace that southern charm (yes some men open your door for you here!). We are adjusting quite well. We LOVE it!

Since moving here, I have thought a lot about what is NEXT. I am excited about what is NEXT. I have an overall better attitude about life down here. I feel more energized. I feel healthier. I feel blessed and I feel like now more than ever it is time to spread my wings and live fearlessly. Over the next few weeks, I have some posts I would like to tackle. There will be a lot of the same, but there will also be new topics. I am just going to go with it and see what happens. It is kind of like my journey and it feels natural to do it that way. So here we go...

Why I moved to Charleston...Why not? Over the very dreary and gray winter I spent some time figuring out where I wanted to be. I toyed with San Diego and Florida. I even thought about NYC, but that was only for a hot minute. I then reconnected with an old friend in Charleston. He told me to come down and so unlike me, I booked a flight and was down south. It just felt right. And so I did it. Yes, it was that simple! And now I am here, in a brand new apartment...already making friends...working hard to build my brand...and excited to explore everything here!

The BLOG...Right now I do not plan to make any changes to the site, as I am honestly not sure what I want to name it. I want to make changes to it, to spruce up my photos, and to give it a little facelift, but at this time due to finances and my busy schedule, it is not on the top of my list. When I am ready to make the change, it will happen, and I feel comfortable with that! No need to rush the process...right? 

New collaborations...I will be working with Rise Bar and Swanson Vitamins over the next couple of months. Stay tuned for posts about these brands and why I love them, use them, and how grateful I am that they support my healthy and active lifestyle! And obviously, I will be building and growing NuttZo. Make sure you check out our recipe page, for so many delicious and nutritious recipes...They are so many good ones! 

I gained 10 pounds and so much MORE...Since I left Nantucket, yes I gained 10 pounds of necessary, healthy, beautiful pounds. I needed it. I needed to put on weight. And once I did, I gained not only my health and my body back but I gained so much more. I am excited to share my journey.

The Charleston Food Scene...Oh friends this is going to be FUN! I mean where do I even start? I of course will be sharing my eats that I cook up in my beautiful apartment here, but I have to figure out how to talk about the FOOD in this city. Food is EVERYWHERE here and it is an amazing thing! It makes me giddy just thinking about it. People love to eat, drink and have fun here and I am excited to explore it ALL with new friends! Buckle up and let us have some FUN!

Have a beautiful weekend y'all! XOXO
