We Moved!

24th October 2017

CharlestonSome 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!

The Past Six Months

17th July 2017

Bachelorette[my dream bachelorette in charleston]

What a whirlwind the past six months have been! From Vegas to San Francisco, Charleston, Portugal and France (several which were work related trips) I never imagined that I would be fitting so much mileage into such a few short months. My big news? In May, Joe and I got married at the most beautiful vineyard north of Lisbon in Portugal and have been on cloud nine ever since, and because we decided to hand make as many of the wedding details as possible (invites, stationary, calligraphy, gifts to name a few) I decided to take a little break from blogging and enjoy the planning process. Now that we’re nicely settled in to married life, I’m excited to get back into all things Paper Vines and also of course share many of our wedding crafting activities! In the meantime, here is a little snapshot of the past six months in photos.

Snapshots from my iPhone

19th September 2014

TDFWThis week has been a great week weather wise, finally a temperature I can relate to – low 20s (C) / 70s (F) and sunny! It has felt so great to wear jeans and layers again. The summer heat or more so the humidity (which I was told wasn’t anywhere nearly as unbearable usual) took a LOT of getting used to, in fact I don’t think my English body ever properly adjusted! Today’s post is short and sweet – sharing a few pictures from my iPhone over the past few months. Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend! Continue Reading
