Hey Some Kinda Good followers! 2015 is full of promise and all things new. I’m super excited to tell you about a few major changes that have happened in my life in recent months–I’ve moved from the coastal plains of Southeast Georgia to the South Carolina coast, my left hand has a shiny new friend and my career has grown LEAPS and BOUNDS after a very longtime coming. Take a look at my “news!”
1) Allow me to begin with the most exciting of all. My good lookin’ proposed over the holidays in his native Savannah at a quaint and perfect local Italian restaurant. I said YES and we couldn’t be happier! May the wedding planning commence.
2) I’ve accepted a brand new job in my absolute dream location! It’s an incredible opportunity and I’m thrilled to be back in the health care field working as the Director of Marketing & Public Relations for a wonderful hospital system in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
3) I’ve relocated from Statesboro, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. I have to pinch myself every few seconds while walking around my two bedroom apartment (sneak peek below). I find myself saying out loud throughout the day, “I live here now. I really live here!” I love my kitchen; it has a breakfast bar and lots of cabinet space. As many of you know, Charleston is full of award-winning restaurants and celebrity chefs. It will take me a lifetime to discover all it has to offer and I will enjoy every last-minute of it, especially sharing my food finds with you! As I get to know Charleston, I welcome your favorite restaurants, coffee shops and hangouts. Have you been? What beach do you recommend? What are the top places I should check out? I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t love the Southern, coastal city. In other news, my final Statesboro Herald food column will run on Sunday, February 15. ‘Boro locals, there’s a special message from me to you there…don’t miss getting your copy.
It was the famous American baseball player Babe Ruth who said, “It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” It’s true what they say about perseverance, and hard work really does pay off. 😉

Congratulations on your engagement, new job, and new home! I thought something was up when “This Week” started coming from someone else. Dobby and I will miss seeing you and Ewok – wish you all the best!
You were a great neighbor! Ewok and I will miss y’all too. Thanks for the kind words. Best of luck with the Chorale at Georgia Southern. 🙂
Wow, that is a bunch of beachy good news. I would have said peachy, but you aren’t in Georgia any more. I hope Kurt knows how lucky he is. If not, remind him on a regular basis. That’s what my bride does.
Apparently the coast called out to both of us. Lydia and I moved from Tampa to Indian Shores (north of St. Pete Beach). Our condo overlooks the gulf on one side and the Intracoastal on the other. I also changed the name of the blog from SOG City Oracle to The Piglet Parade since we are no longer living south of Gandy.
If you haven’t been to The Ordinary, you must go. There was nothing ordinary about The Ordinary.
Best wishes to you and Kurt, and congratulations on your new job.
Jon and Lydia
Jon, it’s great to hear from you! Good to know y’all are on the water now too. Your condo sounds like it’s in a beautiful location. And thanks for letting me know about The Piglet Parade name change. Super cute!
I tried to make reservations at The Ordinary for Valentine’s Day, but what was I thinking? I’ll have to book a table there when everyone else in the free world isn’t trying to eat there too. But we’ll definitely check it out.
Thanks for the kind words and enjoy Indian Shores, looking forward to your food reviews from the new place. 😉
