I grew up in the NYC suburbs and went to college on Long Island before moving here to Charlotte.
That was more than 16 years ago and so Charlotte is now absolutely home. I love my life here and am surrounded by chosen family, friends, connections and people I just adore knowing.
Charlotte and its metro area actually cover a pretty large area but it truly is a VERY big small town.
The amount of overlap, synchronicity and interweaving of connection still kind of stuns me. On a regular basis.
I’ll walk into places and see people I know. I’ll meet someone new and discover we have a lot of friends in common. I’ll talk to someone new and discover we have tons of connections in common.
Charlotte for all of its size and territory is at its heart a very small town. And there’s a part of me that absolutely loves that aspect about this place.
I am and will forever be a New Yorker, the energy of that city is unlike any other and I carry that with me. But Charlotte is my home now.
I’m very aware how dangerous it is for me to say this again but: I do NOT believe in coincidence. I’ve been on the receiving end of synchronicity and magic more often than I can count.
This big small town of Charlotte NC is one I can’t quite explain why I chose but it’s without question home. And I truly, deeply love it here.
