I know I never made a public announcement and almost everyone knows that I made a change in my life so here is my public announcement. I HAVE MOVED TO UTAH TO GO TO SCHOOL!! I am in love with this place and am super happy about my decision. Of course I miss my family like crazy! My Mom taking care of me, my Dads shorty shorts, Barretts crazy stories, and all of my cute nieces and nephews! I don't know what I would do without this magical thing called Skype! I just love that I can see my family and still be so far away. I don't really have a specific reason for moving I just felt like it was time for something different. Yes my boyfriend left on his mission, yes everything at home reminded me of him, yes I hated the heat, and yes I needed to get away. As cheesy as this may sound it is time to work on me and everyday I feel like I am learning more.I have had some amazing new people come into my life that I don't think would have if I never made this move. I am just so thankful that my Aunt Melly and Uncle Stervy can tolerate me living with them! They are amazing people and I hope to be more like them some day.

So far life has been a blur. It has been consumed of unpacking, organizing, more unpacking, and more organizing. I felt like it was a never ending cycle but I defeated the suitcases and bags I brought. You never realize how much crap you have until you have to pack it all up in one little car, and my car really isn't that little.

I am hoping that this move will help me grow in a lot of ways. First I am 20 years old and have never lived away from my parents. Yes I know super embarrassing but its the truth. Hopefully I can learn to be independent even though I am living with my aunt and uncle. I read on a blog (I think) that if you aren't uncomfortable you aren't growing. With big change comes big results. So here is to big change and being uncomfortable. I can not wait to see what I learn from this expeirence, to be able to look back and see what worked and didn't work, what I accomplished and what I failed at. I am beyond excited to dig in and enjoy this beautiful place I now call home.

  1. In my experience, change is always good! I'm proud of you for going outside your comfort zone!:) I'm glad your loving it!

  2. Eryn Amos! I just started randomly stalking your blog, and first of all, your photography is amazing! Seriously, I love looking at it. And congratulations on the change in your life! Where are you going to school, what are you studying? It's hard when so many things in your life change at once, but good for you for standing up and facing it head on! You're going to learn so much and be glad you had the experience! Anyway, just hope everything is going wonderfully for you! Keep the smile on! :)
