Some of you may know that for the past three and a half years I have lived in Hoboken, New Jersey. Growing up in England, it was always my dream to one day work in New York City and in 2014 an exciting opportunity came up which gave me the chance to live out that dream. I packed my suitcases, said goodbye to my little studio in Dublin (where I had been living for nearly 5 years) and hopped on a plane to the ‘Big Apple’. Was it everything I hoped for and more? Absolutely! It was the most incredible experience and I truly loved every second of it. Over the past year, however, Joe and I started to get itchy feet, we were ready for a lifestyle change, a different pace, and more space.
We had visited Charleston, South Carolina on a number of occasions and instantly fell in love with the city and surrounding areas. From the moment we touched down on a visit several years ago we knew that one day we would move here. So a month or two ago when a new opportunity came up with a tech company in the Charleston area, we jumped on it… and now here we are! We’re three weeks into living in this beautiful city surrounded by beaches, palm trees and are happier than ever. While the temperature isn’t quite the Autumn weather I’m used to, I’m loving the warmth while still getting to see the leaves on the trees change colour. I’m so excited about this new chapter of our lives and to share new projects with you on Paper Vines from here in Charleston!
