I'm excited to announce that Travis and I are headed to London for three months starting September 10th. September 10th...as in a week from this Saturday! I'm pretty much bursting with excitement and it's been so hard keeping this a secret, but I've been waiting for all the details to fall into place before sharing the news.
The reason for our trip is so that Travis can help his company open their new office. Obviously, I couldn't resist the chance to tag along, especially since we've been hoping for an opportunity like this for years. It's been a goal of mine to get Evermore to a place where I could work remotely and/or travel for an extended period of time and I can't believe that time has finally come. Abbey, my awesome and energetic sister, will be taking over my shipping responsibilities and managing my inventory and I could not be more thankful.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the systems we've put in place will allow business to continue as normal while I'm away and give me the peace of mind to focus on new work and the business end of things. This announcement may seem a little sudden, but it's something I've worked on for the better portion of this year and I know that I am leaving things in the best hands possible. I also put together this little FAQ (mostly for my lovely stockists) to help answer any additional questions.
With that said, I would love to hear your suggestions. We are starting out in an airbnb in Bethnal Green with plans to look for something more permanent once we arrive. What are your favorite restaurants, parks, coffee shops, neighborhoods and things to do? Also, we hope to squeeze in a few side trips, so please share your recommendations for those as well. Bath, Bruges, the Peak District, Edinburgh and Amsterdam are all at the top of our list. Lastly, I'll be covering our journey with #evermoretravels and sharing more of the day-to-day activities on my personal Instagram account, which is @ashleykukulski. I hope you'll follow along!
