I don't know what it is but I get a little (actually a lot) antsy staying in one place for too long. I thought that I HATED change but turns out that I actually crave it...go figure. I mean since I turned 18 i have lived in AT LEAST 11 different apartments in 4 different states (that's where i lost count). I moved pretty much every new semester in college so i am just used to it.
Chris has lived in a ton of different places too! Growing up he has lived in Oregon, Washington, Phillipines, Hawaii, California, and Texas...and Peru for two years of course! So what I am getting at is that we're used to change. Soooo....surprise surprise...
We have decided to move!!! And we're really excited about it! We have our list of reasons of why we want to move but really it comes down to the fact that we want to go out to somewhere new and see what life experiences we can have.
We thought that Washington was the perfect choice to settle in because both of our families are based here but recently we have been feeling like we are trying to settle too early. We DO want to live by our families when we have our own family and we DO want our kids to have stability so that is what we have to look forward to in the future. But for now... we are going to live a little.
We have been bouncing ideas around of different cities (in the western U.S.- we don't want to get too crazy) and we are pretty sure we know where we want to go. We gave ourselves a deadline and wherever we have good job leads is where we will go for sure. The deadline is the end of this week so we'll keep you updated. I am so excited to go somewhere new, have new experiences, meet new people, and visit new places. (secretly I am most excited about decorating a new place!) The great part is that once we get there if we don't like it...we can move to our second choice spot. I think that a lot of people might think...you can't move that easily, it costs a lot, there are too many factors to look into. But I am feeling like we have broken through that and we just plan to "make it happen!" This might be the only time in our lives that we can live like this so why not, right?
Maybe this motivation is because we are in the process of making our "BURIED LIFE" list. (if you haven't seen that show you should check it out).
And did I mention we will be leaving next month...ya...pretty soon. So...thanks for reading my ramblings...
