Music City in the Making

September 1, 2011

So I’m officially talking to you from my new home in Music City—Nashville,TN!

It’s completely surreal to finally be here and actively searching for work/jobs/careers. I’m not sure what the answer is to that. It may be a part-time job until I get on my feet with something full-time, it might be a full-time job right out the gate or something in between. I’m just trying to be patient, focused and trusting that God will guide me. I just hoping I’m listening carefully.

So…you may ask, why Nashville?

Well, I knew that after graduation I had to do something. Unfortunately, I knew that even if I did the whole stay-at-home-to-save-money thing, I knew I had a desire to move here anyway, or at least out of the state. If you remember, I interned in Nashville last summer with Mocha Club (be sure to check them out if you haven’t yet!). Not only did I love my time with them, but I adored my time in Nashville. It’s all the city you could want with the southern pace that you love. There are always things to do between concerts, galleries and other types of random events. It’s a pretty eclectic and exciting place to be I must say. So, when Jeremy started job searching in Nashville and landed a position as a senior designer with a new and upcoming non-profit called Watermelon Ministries (more posts on this later!), I figured it would be best for us to just move together and figure it all out.

So that’s what we did and that’s what we’re doing. Sure, this is all scary since I’m unemployed in a new city, but as I keep saying, “It’ll all work out,” it will….because it always does. But, your prayers couldn’t be more appreciated!

Well, that’s my update for now. No worries, I DEFINITELY haven’t forgotten about the Ethiopia photos, but moving 11 hrs away kinda threw me off. I’ll be back on track by the end of the week. So please keep checking back, I promise I have some really great moments to share with all of you!


I’m sure you’ll find something employment-wise soon! Major props for having the guts to move out and go where things felt “right” – instead of taking the safe route and moving back home long-term.

Can’t wait to see where things take you – best of luck on the job search 🙂

Wow , love the picture of the city!Looking forward to more. Moving takes courage… I,m going to be somewhat in the same boat , but we have to trust in our Lord , he will guide and keep us !!! Best of luck Amy …and remember ..we’re coming to visit!!!
