For those of you who do not know yet, Philip and I have decided to leave Norfolk and move back to Lexington. I say back, but I haven't actually lived in Lexington for something like nine years and never as an adult. Philip loves Lexington, it is his Baltimore, and he has wanted to move back ever since he left three years ago and now is the time. It was a really difficult decision since we are both happy in our jobs, just not in our lives. Philip really misses the Lexington art scene and has been in a creative funk since we moved here. The move will mean that we are closer to our families and Philip will have the chance to go back to school and maybe gain some experience in computer illustration. I am going to use this change as an opportunity to finally open my own store, something I've wanted to do since I was 14. Life is full of changes and although we will miss several people in Norfolk and we will definitely miss the Ghent neighborhood, it is time for us to move on. Philip will be flying out on September 13 to find a job and apartment and I will move on October 27. That is six weeks that we will be apart so we will be blogging quite a bit to stay in touch.
Here is Philip in the jungle that is his parent's backyard. This is one of the few pictures he took last week.
