It's just about killed me to keep this secret for this long... I'm moving to Austin, Texas on January 31st!  Yes, that's right.  This Florida native, born and raised in Tampa Bay, is taking a huge leap and road tripping it to Texas to start a new chapter in my life.  New city, new apartment, new career, new everything.  To be honest, it's bitter sweet.

I ♥ my life here at T-Tapp.  This decision kinda breaks my heart.  I've been working and training with Teresa Tapp since 1997! That's seriously my entire working career -- almost half of my life here on planet Earth -- and totally worth it.  (I just turned 30 on Monday!)  I literally grew up at T-Tapp and will always be thankful for that.  Teresa Tapp is an amazing woman and mentor.  She is such an inspiration to me.  I have learned SO much from T-Tapp about myself, life, health, fitness and growing a business.  It has been a pleasure working with Teresa and everyone else here in the T-Tapp office -- Berei, Brian, Lauren, Lisa, Jen and Jeanne, plus my long distance co-workers Kitty and Jeff.  (I know we'll be working together even after I'm gone because I really want to become a Certified T-Tapp Trainer!)  I've made lifelong friends with all of them and a bunch of our T-Tappers too.  You guys mean the world to me!

Moving out of state is something that I've dreamed of for years and years.  Texas is the last place that I thought I'd end up.  But Austin is so different from the rest of Texas.  Florida is a lovely place and will always be my home.  It's just time for me to move on... to challenge myself and nurture my personal growth.  I'm really going to miss all my friends and family here in Florida!  And I'm really going to miss the salt life.  At the same time I'm excited to see what opportunities come my way in Austin.  I fell in love with the place when we went there over the summer... I mean who wouldn't with their amazing music and art scene, eco-friendly mindset, young and vibrant city, lots of parks with rivers and lakes, rolling hills, delicious foodie eats, farmers markets, great shopping, and the list goes on and on...  I will come home to Florida every now and then, don't you worry.

I plan on keeping up with this blog with my foodie and fitness adventures in Texas.  So please visit me here when you can!

Au revoir, Florida!
