This is a classic story of small-town girl moves to the big city. And that’s a story I never imagined would be mine.

Not one for change, I have spent my whole life in the same house (except for a few months spent at UNC-Chapel Hill- go Heels!). Same room. Same friends. Same church. Same wonderful family. I mean it when I say I’m not used to change!

Then came March 27, 2015, when I met Iyanu. I guess you could say he swept me off my feet and he introduced plenty of change in my life! Now I’m excitedly (and maybe a little nervously) planning for a wedding, an international move and adjusting to, not just any city, but one of the largest cities in the world, where my soon-to-be husband was born and raised!

Not much could have prepared me for the dramatic turn my life has taken. I couldn’t be more excited to be building a life with my best friend in a land where they actually say things like “cheers” on a regular basis!
