As promised, I’m coming atcha with a bit of a life update today! At the end of the month, Chet and I will be relocating to Huntsville, AL.
We’ve known for a while now that Miami wasn’t going to be a forever home. We were just waiting for the right opportunity to come along. And a few weeks ago, it did! I’m so excited for this new adventure. So far it’s been a whirlwind of packing, scouting places to live, and learning as much as possible about our new home-base.
This move will put us closer to family and friends. Plus, the size/climate/culture of Huntsville is much more in line with the type of location we see ourselves in long term. (I guess you can take a Kentucky girl and a Louisiana boy out of the South…but they sure will miss it a whole bunch!)
Have you ever been to North Alabama? Any recommendations? I’d love to hear! Leave a comment below or feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. ❤
Oh my golly, you guys! I haven’t posted in FOREVER and I certainly apologize for my absence around these parts. Elitist llama up there doesn’t look too kindly on bloggers who ignore their blogs!
Whilst M.I.A., Chet and I went on a week’s vacation to Louisiana. We got to visit with his family, eat a bunch of delicious food, and mosy around the great outdoors with out the oven-like temperatures of South Florida. We also managed to sneak in a little time in New Orleans where we BBQ’d with friends, enjoyed daquiris, and walked around the sweet neighborhood streets. (Have I mentioned how much I want to move to NOLA these days???) All in all, we had a BLAST!
Book-ending our trip out of town has been a LOT of work to be done by yours truly…accounting for the other half of my radio silence. Hopefully I’m on the return path to a balanced WORK – BLOG – LIFE flow. Well, at least for next few weeks! I’m off to Kentucky for two weeks in July and I might be too busy visiting with my Mama and shaping the mind’s of America’s youth to drop any lengthy content. (I’m teaching at a speech & debate camp!) But I’ll try to post updates/fun stuff here and there.
P.S. Check out my FAVES PAGE for a list of my current favorite things. I plan to update regularly…in case you care about my faves…which you should.
Happy Memorial Day, friends! I hope everyone is having a fantastic long weekend and that you’re able to fire up the grill and have a relaxing break from work! I apologize for the recent radio silence around these parts. The blogging sabbatical has not been without good reason! Most notably, SOMEONE got to add PhD at the end of his name…
I was lucky enough to fly down to Louisiana for Chet’s graduation and then we loaded up all his stuff and made the big move back to Kentucky. And of course we made a stop along the way to visit our friends in Bowling Green! Since then, we’ve just been happily settling in to the end of long distance (!!!) and enjoying the beginning of what promises to be a spectacular summer.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to…what about you?
