I'm moving to Africa!! Oh yeah!!

Hey everyone!

I'm sorry to say that there will be less polish posts around these parts in the future.
But I'm happy to announce that I'll be moving to Lesotho in southern Africa in a few weeks to teach English as a Peace Corps Volunteer.
That said, I'm in a lot of transition right now: three moves in less than two weeks.
You might see some random posts, as I'm going to schedule the rest of my draft posts.
But I will be posting less because of the transition.
And I just have to wrap my mind around the fact that I will be peeing in a bucket, eating no cupcakes and will not have my 100-plus polish collection to oooh and aww over:)
So bear with me as I make this huge life transition.
It will be a while before I have regular Internet access when I get to Africa.
I will be in a remote village with no electricity and running water. And did I mention no nail polish. Sniff. Sniff.
But it's the experience of a lifetime. I couldn't say no, especially with nothing holding me back or down in America. I really have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
So, thank you so much for reading my blog, supporting my ideas and engaging with me! I couldn't have written this blog without your support.
Please be patient with with me and my blogging as I take this journey. I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

Hugs and kisses,
