Moving On

We have been in the process the last few months of deciding WHERE and WHEN to relocate our family.

Most of you know that Chris has been spending a lot of time this year on the East Coast, with the Financial World as it is. It has been an amazing opportunity for him to work on Wall Street. He has done well, and has accepted a promotion this past Spring. With that, a relocation option became available.

After looking at our options, we've decided the best place for our family to land is....
Charlotte, North Carolina!! A mere 2,044 miles away...
Home to the Nascar School of Driving, White Water Training Center, and Caroworks (a REAL roller coaster park, yay!) AND...wait for it.....THE BILLY GRAHAM LIBRARY!!!
This is the view of the skyline from a downtown park.

...and a nighttime view.

We're excited for the new adventures we'll have as a family as we explore our new little corner of the world. We hope to make lots of good friends, and plenty of happy memories.

The timing is still up in the air, but Chris will be there next week to check out some areas that we are interested in. And we cleaned and polished and decluttered all weekend to be ready for a Real Estate Agent to come evaluate our property this morning. It makes it all feel...very real.

Lots of work left to do, and lots of decisions to be made, but the wheels are in motion.

We'll keep you posted.


  1. Very exciting! You have a lot of plans to get crackin' on. Don't worry, I'm mapping out an AR visit to break up your 4 day drive. We just happen to be almost exactly in the middle of SLC and Charlotte! How fun would that be?

    Oh, and did I mention we have a very nice pool? :)

  2. I love that we have chosen a place!!! You know that we will come and visit. Congrats!!!

  3. whoooooaaa how awesome! i can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. WHAT!!!! Okay we are totally getting together before you move. Sad news for us but exciting for you. I've been to Charlotte and it is very very pretty. I love North Carolina and spent a few summers working there. It is such a beautiful place but wow what a change for you guys!

  5. How awesome. North Carolina is so pretty.

  6. I cant believe your moving:( It will be sad not to run into you all the time. We will have to keep in touch through blogging. Good luck!

  7. Thanks for all your well wishes. I really appreciated your support with my mil.

    I am so sad your moving. I kept thinking we had tons of time to plan a gno or kid friendly thing to reconnect. Now we have to continue our blog friendship. Boo :(

  8. WOW...seems weird. I am happy for blogs and being able to keep track. Let us know how we can help!

  9. Maybe one of these summers I'll have to take a cross-country road trip. I can stop and visit my relatives in Texas on the way. I've actually got relatives in North Carolina, too.
