Her belongings, now trimmed to the barest of essentials, are packed in her car, the bags and boxes strategically placed in order to maximize efficiency.
The notices have been given, the farewell luncheons have been shared, the good-byes have been said.
For there is an adventure awaiting her in Chicago. Her generous aunt and uncle have invited her to live and work with them in their Aveda salons.
And being 23 and unattached and ready for your life to begin, it's an un-pass-up-able opportunity bringing unforeseen horizons. A change-up that will bring new experiences and challenging chances that, by their very nature, can do nothing but inspire growth.
It is all ahead.
And it all begins tomorrow.
