Moving On

My husband and I moved on to...Minnesota.

It all started the last week of April, when Jonathan picked me up from my parents and told me he'd been downsized.

Shock. Anger. Sadness. Fear.

There were a lot of emotions. And then the questions. What should we do? Should we stay or leave? If we leave, how will we do it? Is it better to stay? What about our families?

After much thought and research we decided to move. We had talked about moving for years. But it's difficult to leave a steady job in a rough economy, so we stayed.

But suddenly we didn't have the "steady job" to stop us. We knew that if we wanted to pull up stakes and seek out something new...the time was now.

Thanks to help from friends and family, we packed up our stuff and headed west, landing ourselves in the Twin Cities.

We've been feeling everything from exuberant glee to heartbreaking sorrow.

We miss our friends and family very, very much. We are also excited about a new adventure.

So, here's to a new chapter in our lives...

And the journey continues. Page one of the next chapter. Reach for the stars. Skip the bars. And land on Mars.

I am very proud of you.
