WELCOME TO CHICAGOJO
Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
In August 2017, my husband took a call that would change our lives. To be fair, it’s a call we had hoped might come a little earlier in his career, but better late than never. The call was a job offer that saw us embark on a whirlwind of change for us and our two teen-aged boys.
So, from suburban life in a rural Buckinghamshire village and a job as a secondary school English teacher, I’m now living in a northern suburb of Chicago having left a job I loved but which was slowly burning me out. My husband – with 25 years of experience in cocoa and chocolate has swapped one of the coolest job titles for another, equally tantalising one – something to do with tasting rainbows…
I have no idea what the future holds, but we’re all embracing the change, saying yes to everything and settling into our new life. Oh, and I’m writing about it so we can look back on it one day and laugh at how we attempted to cope with it all!
Chicagojo serves as a vessel to project my passion for writing about life and faith and keep my loyal readers updated on what inspires me on this new adventure we're on. So, sit back, relax, and read on.
