Have you ever seen that Seinfeld episode where Jerry is teasing Elaine with " the BIG news "?
It turns out the big news is that George is getting married . For some reason I always think of that scene when someone says they have big news .
Well, we also have big news around here - no, I am not pregnant ! (Isn't that what everyone always assumes???) Our big news is that we are moving back to Charlottesville !
Moving is something we have been thinking about for over a year now but we were waffling back and forth about whether to stay in VA or move back to NC . While we are sad that we won't be moving closer to our family in NC, we absolutely love Charlottesville and are both really excited to be heading back to the "other side of the mountain" . We have found a house that has so much potential and will be a great place to raise the girls . It feels like we are out in the country although we will actually only be about 8 minutes from town . Ironically one of my very first blog posts was about my dream of living both the town and country life and now we are getting to do it ! The new house even has a barn that is going to be my studio ! So EXCITED !
(Above is a little peak at the backyard . How great is that huge oak tree ?!?)
Of course my mind is spinning with plans for the new house while at the same time on the brink of shutting down when I think about how in the heck we are going to move everything out of our current house . As always, change is bittersweet . We love our current house and have so many great memories of our time here . We have made a couple of very close friends here and even though it will be easy to stay in touch, we will miss living right around the corner from them . We are really hoping this move will be our "forever" house, or at the very least our "for a long, long, long time" house, so we felt a lot of pressure to find the right place . I can't wait to turn it into our home !
