In case you hadn't heard, this clan is on the move! We knew before we got married that we didn't feel our current home is our permanent home, but we weren't sure what that timeline would look like, or where life would take us for sure. We've had great opportunities here, and we've made friends who will be so hard to leave. However, the right fit came up for Kyle, and we're pretty excited for this next step in our journey! I'll be staying behind like the poky puppy as I finish the school-year because frankly, what the heck would I do for five months?! I also hate to be this close to the end of the year and cause a fruit-basket-upset for my students and colleagues, and I'd feel like a big jerk if I left in the middle of the year without a pressing reason. Kyle starts his new gig after Easter, and that means we'll be spending a couple months apart once again, which we hate, but we know in the long-run it's the right move for us.
Because of all these new changes, we also made a trek north to our soon-to-be home after we got back from Vegas. We'll be four hours from where we are now, so even though we've both visited town, it's not somewhere we have the luxury of hopping to quickly to house-hunt and sort out details. My parents joined us to check it out, we found Kyle a temporary home, and we got to meet a few locals, all of whom are super kind whenever we're there. Because we'll be living a little too close to the Ice Cream Capital of the World (honestly, the gym membership has to exist), we made a visit, and we happened to take the ONLY picture we got the whole week of vacation. We're hoping that's a sign that we're not like all the other millennials :) We'll keep you posted on our new adventure, but for now, I have a boatload of laundry calling my name since real life lies ahead!
