They say home is where the heart is, but for me my heart is in two places. In September 2012, I moved from Chicago, Illinois to Manchester, England to follow my dream of attending art school as well as to be closer to my soon to be husband. I have never spent this much time away from my family, and it has honestly been the hardest but best time of my life. No matter what, Chicago will always be my home. It's where I spent the first 20 years of my life. My family and friends are there. But Manchester is now my new home. It is where I will be spending the rest of my life. I go to one of the best art schools and have made amazing friends. The past few months Manchester has shaped me into an adult; I have never lived on my own before. I will be getting married in August in Chicago and will come back to Manchester. I will have a new home here with family and friends. This where, one day, I will start my own family. No matter what, though, I will never stop calling Chicago my home, part of me is still there. Home is where there is love and happiness, I am lucky enough to have two.
