Well, I’ve been trying to write this post for months. Before moving to Nashville և.
You read that right.
I moved to Nashville.
If you’ve been following me on IG, you already know that. But before I started updating my blog again and again, I thought I would understand what has been going on since December last year.
I’m not sure where to start, but let me say that I have been trying to move to Nashville for about 3 years, և time and situation never seem to match. Even before I moved to my old place, I wanted to take that step, the decision was that if I did not take that step, I would have to find a place to live, to work, and where I would be happy. And so I stayed in Jersey City, New Jersey, that apartment. Which you have seen a lot from my One Room Challenge projects և home tours.
I was so emotionally attached to that house because I worked so hard on it that it took me a whole year to say goodbye. It interfered with the attempt to finish the book, everything that life threw at me. But after making a few trips to Nashville in 2019, the last one being Thanksgiving, I finally made my decision. I came home from that trip, I never opened my suitcase. I decorated Christmas, dressed George Jones, and headed home to Nashville, TN. My goal is that when I get the Christmas decorations, I wrap them up with everything else I have.
I was confirmed և On New Year’s Eve 2019, I signed a lease for my first place in Nashville, TN. The greatest Christmas present I could ever hope for. Exactly one year after my partner left, one year after writing a book, one year after publishing it, one year after finding a way back to myself.
I spent the next two months packing, planning, and implementing this step. After many trips to the Salvation Army, many of Uhaul’s many boxes, many mental disorders, 13 hours in two cars, I և arrived in Nashville two days before my 33rd birthday. On my one-week anniversary as I was celebrating Roberts Western World with friends, a tornado struck Nashville and its environs. Particularly devastating parts of East Nashville, where I live. I was very lucky to be back home with the ruins that took me 2 hours to return home. That night I slept in my bedroom closet completely traumatized.
I spent the next week of the tornado volunteering in East Nashville. Every day was different. For a few days I made sandwiches or had lunches or boxes or left food for the needy. I could not imagine how to open the house where I had just moved, I was still lucky, while the others, far away from the streets, had lost everything. So I earned that volunteer state nickname on my new Tennessee patent.
One week after the tornado, everything closed because of Covid-19. I can only say that this is not the new beginning I was looking forward to, but here I am. I’ve spent the last two months taking out my packages, settling in, living well. It was hard to think of anything else. And I wanted to write this post, but so many things happened in such a short time, I just did not know where to start. I hope you are all safe,: I hope we will return to normal life soon. But at the same time, I thought I could go back to sharing some cocktail ideas with home decor inspiration.
So I’m here to tell you that I’m BACK. xo Natalie
