I’ll Finally Be Channing in the City

I’ll Finally Be Channing in the City

I’ve started and restarted this post about a hundred times. When I imagined that this day would come, I pictured myself so sure and confident in my new life in New York City. I just knew that I would have the right words to say. Especially to you all, some who have been with me since the very beginning. But I don’t. I’ve spent the past two days thinking about in between packing, doctors appointments and excessive paperwork.


It’s not that I’m unsure of myself. The work that I’ll be doing is not unlike the things I do here on the blog. With a company and people that I already heart. I just know that I have been waiting for this moment forever. And the way that it’s happening, this couldn’t be anything but God.

I’m not sure when exactly I’ll be settled enough to consistently write, so posts may be slow but the real fun is just beginning so please, please, don’t go. I have a video shoot on the 31st I can’t wait to tell you all about and I turn 26 on Two-Six this year! I wanted to evolve this blog to be a bit more than OOTDs and now I’ll get a chance. I’m excited.


My first day of work is today. Say a little prayer for me if you get a chance.

Oh, and p.s. my mom started her blog, Age of Grace. I’m quite proud if I may say so myself. I miss her already.
