Thanks for all your congratulations on the news about the new job and the move! We are actually moving about an hour away, back to our hometown where my husband and I met. Did you know we actually met in the sixth grade?
This is what he looked like then. Hubba hubba. I’ll refrain from revealing just how nerdy I looked in sixth grade. Let’s just say, we’ve known eachother a long time.
We are excited that the Mini Athlete and his sibling will grow up close to their grandparents and my husband is especially excited that his children will get to wear the green and white of our high school. In fact, this is actually how he announced the news of our move on Facebook – with the Mini Athlete in one of his old high school jerseys:
My new job will be the Executive Director of a non-profit organization. It’s definitely a change from what I do now (student affairs at a law school) but I’m excited about what I’ll be doing!
But first we have to get through this next month. Moving, starting a new job and being pregnant all at the same time definitely adds up in the stress department. We’re leaning toward renting a place when we move (and already have a place lined up for the most part) but part of me still wonders if we should be buying a place. There are so many pros and cons to both.
Timing is everything, right? A year from now we will have two children under the age of two – a two year old and a six month old. I can’t decide if the timing is better now or then!
But one this is sure – we are very excited about getting back to our roots. Our hometown is a small town, but it’s a great one. And it’s a definite perk that we have one of the nicest beaches in the world!
What do you love about your hometown?
