Someone please cue Kanye West’s “Homecoming,” because I’m coming home again. Y’all I’m leaving Rochester, NY and headed back to Birmingham, AL. I can’t believe it’s been two years since I moved to this city, where I knew absolutely no one. Not a Facebook friend. Not a sister-best friend- brother. Not. A. Soul. Scary, right? I made it through, with plenty of stories to tell. But the next chapter of my life story is taking me back down south.

I have an amazing opportunity to work as a TV journalist at the top news station in the state. Pretty cool, right?

It’s been six years since I’ve lived, worked, and played in my hometown. That’s almost a decade. Eeeeeek. I can’t wait to check out all the new boutiques, restaurants, and wine bars.

More importantly, I’ll get to spend time with my family. I’ve missed softball games, dance recitals, and graduations. But no more. “Auntie Miese” is coming home.

What’s the best part of it all— I’ll get the opportunity to tell the stories that will impact the community I call home. I’m joining a news team I’ve watched as a little girl.

As excited as I am, this moment is bitter-sweet for me. Returning to Birmingham means leaving behind people who mean a lot to me. I’m saying goodbye to people who became my family, when mine was hundreds of miles away. I get all misty-eyed just thinking about leaving and my moving date is right around the corner.

I’ll make my trip home nearly two years to the day that I started my journey to the “Flower City.”

Goodbye Rochester and cheers to the next chapter!
