Ever search for the right words to say or wonder when would be the right time to spill? Well it’s been a long time coming as we’ve had a secret for the better portion of the year. So I’ll just come out and say it “we’re moving to California”.
Some may be asking why, why would we leave so soon? Well, the program hubby was working on got canceled and there is nothing holding us here. Hubby had a sneakin’ suspension early in the year that the program was going down in flames so he started his job search early. The other thing on our plate was to get into our house as fast as we possibly could. All things seemed to channel in the right direction as the house was moving along and opportunity was out there. Then along came a program in California that knocked his socks off.
We’ve talked on and off about California for years as hubby had great interest working on the programs out there. Little did we know it would happen so soon. What a blessing in disguise. I can’t begin to express the excitement we feel but what I can say is this. As soon as I learned about this opportunity I told hubby “all I need is an hour notice”. Normally when hubby asks me about moving I have replied in the past “I’ll follow you to the ends of the earth”. This time, give me an hour baby and I’ll be ready.
I have a little more than an hour notice as the company just bumped up his start date and they want him in just two very short weeks. He’s jumping through hoops with his current job in NY and getting ready to give his notice. We’re in a whirlwind and I can’t wipe the smile from my face.
There is definitely a large piece of our hearts that will be left behind and we will never forget the passion that went into making this our home. Perhaps one day we will have the opportunity to build a home again, this was definitely a great experience.
