[Our] Next Big Adventure

Got married.
Moved to Minnesota.
Started new jobs.
Moved to a new apartment.
Started growing a baby.

We decided it just wasn't enough to do in one year. So what's up next? 
Move to Pennsylvania. 

 That's right, Mike and I are relocating once again. This time to Pennsylvania. Mike was offered a position at Penn State University that he just couldn't pass up, so we'll be moving out there in the next few weeks. It's bittersweet -- I'm hesitant to move even further away from family, friends, and familiar places. But at the same time, I don't 100% love St. Cloud and it's a move that will open some great doors in the future. 

The way I look at it, that's what airplanes are for. I can easily get home to family and friends, and living 6+ hours away from them now isn't just down the road. And doing this all at 7 months pregnant... are we crazy? Maybe a little. But really, will it be easier when we have a 2-year-old? Two little ones? After we've bought a house in St Cloud? I can't imagine so. So... let's begin the next big adventure!

Consider this your open invitation to come visit us. Anytime you can.


  1. You'll be fine! Sounds like a great opportunity for y'all! We moved to Houston when I was 33 weeks pregnant with Camilla. Found a new OB and he's one of my favorite people of all-time.

  2. I hope I do as well as you have done! When I tell Mike I won't have any friends, he tells me that I'll have to find a Mommy Bootcamp or Mommy Pilates class "Like Mel did"!
