I thought I’d keep you guys posted regarding some personal things going on in my life right now. I mentioned in my February 2015 Favorites that we’re moving this month.
My spouse accepted a job in Hoboken, New Jersey and we’re moving to the NYC area this month. In true Casa d’EauMG fashion, we did this rather impulsively and quickly. I found out last Friday and we’re moving in a week. We don’t have a place to live yet. I don’t have a job yet. But, it’s something we’ve talked about and we’ve jumped on this opportunity. And well, we’ve been wanting a change. It seems like a better time than ever.
We’ve been in the Seattle area since 2008, so as you can imagine, we have a lot of stuff to sort out before moving. I need to sell stuff, thrift stuff and pack what can’t be easily replaced. I’ve also got to sort a lot of other stuff out and plan for the move. I won’t be posting as regularly to EauMG due to lack of time. Hopefully, I’ll feel like posting again once we’ve settled. In fact, life is already so chaotic that I can’t wait for it to settle down!
When I first started EauMG, I had moved from Nashville to Seattle. We didn’t have any jobs or any place to live. It turned out great for us in the long run. I still really love Seattle. It’s a beautiful place with cool stuff to do. But, my favorite parts of the area are the people I’ve met and the relationships that I’ve formed throughout the years. When you plan a big move, you think about the things that you’ll miss. But, it’s never things that you’ll miss. It’s the people. Landmarks, entertainment and restaurants are all replaceable but people aren’t. Leaving my friends will be the most difficult. But, absence makes the heart grow fonder. And my heart is big.
Until next time, I’ll smell ya later!
