Long story short, we ended up moving to Huntington Beach when I was 8 months pregnant. We liked Southern California. It was slightly cheaper, warmer, and closer to the ocean. We didn't, however, love it. (* I did love my neighbor Mibi who was loud and funny and would give the shirt off her back to anyone who needed it). We felt really rushed into our decision, Jonny didn't like his job, blah blah blah.
Flash forward to September. Jonny and I were talking about putting roots down somewhere and revisited our 5 year plan, which was to eventually get back to Idaho. Losing my mom really flipped a switch in me. Living in a big city, away from family, and moving up the corporate ladder really lost its luster. We wanted to move somewhere where we could actually afford to put our kids in different activities, go to concerts and plays, and not spend $2,000 to rent a shoebox!
So our 5 year plan was bumped up 4 years and 49 weeks. Jonny quit his job, we packed up, and headed to Idaho. Due to boring to read/ write about circumstances, we ended up in Twin Falls for a little longer than expected (thanks to Dad and Nan for letting us crash in your basement!!), but now we are finally here in BOISE!!
We are all unpacked, Jonny is looking/interviewing for jobs, and we are starting to explore the city. We love it already! Boise really seems to have a lot to offer. It's a great sized city for us. We can't wait to make friends and get more settled in.
And here are some cute pics to leave you with. I hate pictureless posts:
