Welcome to The Lost Boyds! My name is Whitney Boyd and I have left dream job as a CPA and business manager at a public accounting firm in midtown Manhattan for the adventure of a lifetime. I previously lived in New York City with my husband Jeremy and our black lab Coal, but needed a change. I have always loved to explore and be active! Whether it is hiking, scuba diving, running marathons (which I’m un-officially retired from) or just escaping the city for a weekend jaunt to the beach, chances are I’m spending my free time enjoying the outdoors, or exploring one of the thousands of restaurants New York City has to offer. Just ask Jeremy…our bucket list never ends.
I’m originally from Atlanta, and “originally-originally” from New Orleans. I grew up in a military family (my mom and dad served in the US Army until I was 13 years old). During that time, we lived in 4 states, 1 foreign country (Germany) and many cities in between. I went to 9 schools by the age of 14, but my family eventually settled in the small town of Cumming, Georgia, which is where I met my husband. That’s right… Jeremy and I are high school sweethearts and have been sharing adventures together ever since. In 2011, after 12 years of being together, we finally made it official and tied the knot in our dream wedding in New York City.
This blog is the beginning of the next chapter of our lives. In New York, they say “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” Well after 7 years in New York, we are putting it to the test…literally.
