    Seven years ago today, I packed my car full of my belongings, plugged ‘Charlotte, North Carolina’ into the GPS, and headed away from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania… the only place I’d ever known as “home.” Having made the decision to move only a few days earlier, I didn’t really even have time to worry that I didn’t have a place to live or that I didn’t know a soul in Charlotte. My mom, on the other hand, found time to worry AND throw an awesome going away party. If you know her, this isn’t the least bit surprising. Lady Katie throws great parties.
