Taylor Norton Founder Eastern Wake Love

Hey There!

Let me tell you a little bit more about me! 🙂  

I’m Taylor, and I’m a nurse turned stay-at-home mom to two amazing little kiddos.  Our family lives in Knightdale, North Carolina.

Back in 2022, After going through multiple years of the COVID-19 pandemic pregnant while raising a toddler (and then a newborn), my husband and I decided to uproot our lives.  We moved from our home state of Virginia to North Carolina to be closer to our families, and we chose Knightdale to be our new home.

I’ve been enjoying exploring the area ever since and have realized what an underappreciated gem this area East of Raleigh truly is.

It felt like while finding our new home, getting a feel for a town was such a struggle to do remotely.  I kept thinking, “Why isn’t there more information online about these cute towns to the East?”  So, I decided to do something about it! 

With hours of self-taught web design, I’ve created this site to highlight the beauty and uniqueness that is Eastern Wake and beyond.  Whether you’re thinking about relocating here, moving here from another town in the Triangle, or just planning a visit, come on in and I’ll be your virtual tour guide!

I look forward to taking this journey with you to soak in some Eastern Wake Love!

What's Next?

Curious to learn more about what life is like living a stone’s throw from Raleigh in Knightdale, North Carolina, or its neighboring towns?  Me too!

My plan for this blog is to focus on my hometown of Knightdale, and grow out my content from there to include Wendell, Zebulon, East Raleigh, Rolesville, Wake Forest, and eventually Clayton (even though Clayton is technically in Johnston County- but ya’ll – we’re next door neighbors to Clayton and I know if you are living here, you’re definitely going to visit this charming town!

The amazing thing about this area is that growth is happening so quickly! There are always new plans for town amenities and new small businesses to explore!

Lastly, my full credentials are Taylor Norton, MSN, RN.  Because of my healthcare background and passion for helping people live their healthiest life possible, I love helping you find amenities and businesses in North Carolina that support a healthier life style.  Reach out to me via my contact page if you would like to learn more!
