Big changes going on...I’m packing up the studio and heading south (!!!!!) RR will now be based in Atlanta! Business will run as usual with just a little more emails and packages back and forth. I will continue working with my NY vendors (excuses to come back to the city!) as well as research opportunities to work with new vendors in Atlanta and the south east. I’m sure there will be a few (or a lot) of kinks to work out, there always is, right? But all in all I’m really looking forward to the change, and more space!
My husband WIll and I have been talking about moving for a long time. And, well, now with our little one it seems like the perfect time. And that’s just it, time. Time is so apparent to me now after having my son. For me, it’s one of the coolest and scariest things about becoming a parent. You see first hand just how fast time can go by. I like to think of Jackson as my little visual timetable. Sure, seasons and school years have always been indicators of time moving. But when you’ve been out living life in your 20’s and 30’s you tend to forget. At least I have. One year is no big deal. I didn’t finish that house project or see one of my old friends, but it really didn’t matter too much. I eventually got it done, my friend and I eventually hung out. But one year is such a huge amount of time in “baby years”. You watch a person start from a little thing that can not lift it’s head to someone that’s crawling all over the house talking. All within one year the amount of development and growth your baby, and even you as a parent, have is phenominal. And suddenly, I understand so much more, every single day counts. And not just knowing it, becuase we all know this. But feeling and seeing it before my eyes.
My 12 years in NYC has flown by, and I really do love this city. I am going to be sad to say goodbye, but it’s time for a change. Time to start a new chapter in our lives. Time to take what I’ve learned while living here and apply it in a new place. Time to slow down. Time to say goodbye. Time to say hello.
