BIG News – Part 1

I know I have been very bad about blogging. Truth be told, I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life that I was not comfortable sharing with all of the internet. {Believe it or not} There are things I keep to myself and my inner circle. Now that I have hammered out a few details, I feel comfortable sharing part of what I’ve been cooking up. Everything will be revealed in parts so as not to overwhelm {and give me fodder for future blog posts}. Ok… Here goes….

Anne K. is leaving L.A.!

For those that are Facebook and Twitter friends, it should be no surprise that I am leaving Los Angeles. After 7 years in this city, I feel as though I’ve overstayed my welcome. I am definitely a city girl, but not necessarily an Angeleno. I could not decide what city I would prefer to relocate to. In the interim, I’ll be moving back to my hometown of Virginia Beach. Over the next couple of months, I’ll be “auditioning” {read:visiting} cities to decide on my next locale. I am open to suggestions. The move will give me an opportunity to further develop and focus my energy on The Paper Stylist and spend some much needed time with my family.

Here’s where it gets a little crazy…

I’m leaving L.A. for good on December 14th.

I’ll be having a going-away soiree so that I can say, “see you later” to some of the wonderful people I’ve met during this chapter of my life. Please email me at if you’d like to join me.

My two year blogiversary just passed. I’ll be sad to change the name of this blog, but I don’t think Anne K. in L.A. will be quite so appropriate when I’m living in an different city. I’m open to ideas for a new blog name. If I choose the blog name you suggest, I’ll send you an awesome gift. It’ll be good, I promise.
