words of wisdom week 2: long distance loving

15 May 2013
Hi there! It's {av} from {long distance loving}--happily filling in for Ashley while she's away! Though I share quotes on a regular clip on my blog, I had a tough time narrowing down which quote I'd share in Ashley's words of wisdom series. I was one of those geeky teenagers who had an angelfire website devoted to her favorite sayings, so it's safe to say I've had a lifelong love affair with words. After a long debate, this quote from Theodore Roosevelt won out...

Admittedly, I struggled a lot when my husband {cv} and I moved to Rhode Island, many hours away from our friends and family. I was so happy to finally be in the same place as {cv}, but at the same time, I felt completely alone. He worked {and still works} crazy hours, so I found myself with loads of unexpected solo time. After spending hours reading other blogs, I decided to start my own and, as cliché as it sounds, my life changed in amazing and unexpected ways.

When I started my blog, I made a conscious decision to be happy in Providence. I couldn't change where we were, so I found the online space to be the perfect substitute. Discovering the blogosphere opened doors for me in New England--and beyond.

Keep Teddy's wisdom in mind today. Your happiness is in your hands, I promise you this! Thank you so much for having me, Ashley! xoxo {av} | {long distance loving}
