Well folks, our time has come! This has been in the works for 7 years now! We first tried to sell our home in 2009 the summer that we had Bradley. Then we tried again the summer of 2013 without luck. We listed it for sale once more on March 23, 2016 and almost 4 weeks later we got not one--but TWO offers! We are over the moon excited about this next chapter in our life and I can't wait to bring you guys along with us.
Every time we listed it for sale we knew that whatever was meant to happen would happen. It was out of our hands and we would be flexible with God's plan for our life. Looking back, we can now see some big things that we needed to be here for.
Yes we are moving to NY.......Western NY to be more specific, not NYC. Huge difference! 99% of the people we tell this to picture us moving to downtown Manhattan. That is not what we are doing. Our end goal is to get an old Victorian house on some land that we can make our own to grow old in.
If you would like to read about our previous "research" trips that we've taken to WNY, you can read here, here, and here for the first trip in April 2011, and here for our second trip in July 2012. We have definitely put work into the details, and are not going into this decision lightly!
We will miss our family greatly and wish we could take them with us! I just hope they make an effort to visit us and actually see in person the life that we are building.
The timing works out perfectly with Bradley finishing 1st grade and the summer beginning. We have a very generous cushion of savings that I have amassed in preparation for the big move. I will be doing a travel nursing contract that will earn enough money during the summer to be able to take off during the holidays (and snow season!). Nick also has several job leads even! Everything is lining up and we can't wait to see what life has in store for us! I will use this blog to journal the process and our adventures once we get to our destination. Please follow along!
