I wrote this post on September 23rd.
Thought it was about time I share it with you.
I have been sitting on this post for a few weeks. First I was waiting until the papers were signed, then I waited until we had resigned from our jobs, then I waited until we had told all of our close friends and family and then I waited for… I don’t know. I think maybe for it to feel official.
Today, it couldn’t be more official. One way tickets for my family were delivered to my inbox. It feels “official official” to have one way tickets.
Have you ever bought one way tickets to somewhere that wasn’t home?
It feels… exciting and overwhelming and nerve racking all at once.
Tickets are so…
But I am focusing on exciting. And it is truly exciting.
In a nut shell, I’ve accepted an amazing professional opportunity and we are moving because it was so good I couldn’t say no. We couldn’t say no.
This means so many changes for our family. First, we are moving away from the city where both hubby and I were born and raised. We’re moving away from all of our friends, our family and everything we have ever called home.
We are moving somewhere where we know no one but each other.
It also means that my husband will no longer be a police officer. Which means he will no longer work shift work which means for the first time in our entire life together (pre and post children) he will actually be home.
We have never been a “regular” family (whatever that is). With these one way tickets sitting in my inbox we will be redefining everything we’ve ever known our family to be.
I don’t know how exactly I am feeling, but right now I’m choosing to focus on excited.
