The next phase

 (from our Anniversary in Park City at the restaurant Handle)

We are down to our last few weeks in Austin!  I can't believe how quickly these last few months have gone.  I realized a few days ago that I never told you where we are moving to, so I figured, I ought to mention it, before we head out in June!

Adam got a job in UTAH!  Hooray!  Actually, I am more happy that he has a job than where it is (he applied to jobs all over the place and I feel like we could have been happy anywhere), but we feel really great about moving to Utah, and he is super stoked about the job itself, so I am happy we are going.

(he was so tiny last summer! And his feet got so dirty on that floor, no matter how often I mopped!)

We will be much closer to his parents, much closer to my family (including my sisters!!!), and my brother lives in Utah, right now, so I am pretty stoked to be going back!

I have been surprised at how much I have missed seeing my family, because we are currently the furthest away.

After I graduated from college and moved to Texas, I found myself missing Utah far more than I had ever missed Las Vegas.  Not that I didn't miss my family (who lived in Las Vegas) when I lived in Utah, but the place itself I never missed.

But I really missed the mountains in Utah, and the snow at Christmas (to be clear here, I hate snow in February-June, but I love it at Christmas), and the gorgeous Spring/Summer/Fall weather.  I am seriously thrilled to be going back!

Wish us luck as we pack up our apartment and drive 1200 miles with a 2 year-old!


  1. How exciting! Congratulations!!! We packed our house and moved from Michigan to Oklahoma last year with a 5, 4, and 1 year old! I drove the van with all of the kids while my husband drove the truck. It was madness, but such a fun adventure!!

  2. I could seriously cry from jealousy. We miss Utah, and family so much, and are desperate to go back! So exciting for you guys though! Will Adam be teaching at one of the universities? Can't wait to live my Utah dream vicariously through you!

  3. wishing you & your family the very best in this new adventure!!! :)
