You know when something so hugely overwhelming happens, and you don’t even know where to begin talking about it? Like New York Fashion Week. Or when your best friend asks “how did the date go?”... You know what I mean?
Well I had something hugely overwhelming happen to me and I have postponed this post (get it, postponed?) for far too long, plus in an effort to share more of myself on the blog I really should tell you…
For the past 3 years I had been living in the glorious beach-side city of Sydney, Australia. And though I’m not Australian (Texan actually) I grew to love the place and call it home. My outfit posts were set against lovely backdrops of old terrace homes and the cafe-filled alleys surrounding my apartment. And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss it every day. But nonetheless, I have a new home now! I’m back in Austin, Texas! Equally lovely and super creative, this town is already inspiring me in countless ways. The move hasn’t been without its road bumps though (leaving friends, momentarily moving back in with my parents, sometimes wondering “why did I move again??”) plus no longer being an expat means no longer special. Just like everybody else. While removing myself from my comfort zone has been difficult at times, I think it’s important to shake things up in life. I’m now blogging with the Austin-based team of the beyond beautiful CamilleStyles.com, which is adding a fun new dimension to my blogging experience. And most importantly, I’m no longer half a world away from my friends and family (my reason for moving) and being able to call up my best friends in the same time zone has made a world of difference. I went to college here (hook em!) but moving back as a young adult not a student is like discovering a whole new city. Known for its killer thrift shops, its live music scene, and for being, let’s face it, weird – I’m so looking forward to rediscovering Austin and sharing all my finds with you!
I know blogging is all virtual anyway, so it shouldn’t really matter where I’m blogging from, but a new location means a new job, new experiences, and most exciting of all: a new empty place to decorate! So you’ll be seeing the effects here on Fuji Files, coming soon.
phew, I guess that wasn’t so hard
