About

My name is Laura Ruth. I uplifted my life (and the life of my husband’s) to move to Katonah, NY for the purpose of working and living in NYC.

In 2017 my husband, Daniel, and I decided to make a big change and move to New York.

The purpose of this blog is to document our exciting journey to New York from Georgia. This site is meant to offer helpful tips and possibly encourage those who are wanting to make a big change in their lives.

Have you wanted to make a change? Feeling hesitant in taking a leap in a completely different direction? Follow me on this journey as I chase a dream I have had since the third grade – – to be a writer.

This blog will be a great [personal] opportunity for me as well, as writers should always be writing.

It may not be the dream of moving to New York or wanting to be a writer, but if there is something you want in life, why not ask for it? Why not make a change so you are closer to turning a fantasy into reality?


I graduated cum laude from Kennesaw State University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and two minors in Professional Writing and Film Studies.

Professionally, I have management and administrative experience within the property management, sales, and hospitality industries.
