We're moving again! 

I've blogged about how The Hubs is working on his 2nd post graduate degree an MPH from UC Berkeley however he's actually going on a sabbatical from Berkeley because he has just recently been offered (and now accepted!) a residency position in North Carolina!! Woot Woot!

#superproudwifey :)

My life in a nutshell!

I thought I'd be sad about losing my closet but surprisingly I'm not lol. - and actually when I was in DC for a few months last year The Hubs and I had a convo about my closet.

The Hubs: Ok be honest what do you miss more Me? or your closet?
(I really thought about it long and hard)
Me: You.
The Hubs: NO WAY!
Me: Yeah.. I'm surprised too HAHA. jk.. but seriously that stuff is just stuff.. and replaceable. But you not so much."

*GAG* I know... but seriously a man that is this intelligent, generous, hard working, loving, thoughtful, driven and awe-inspiring I know he's a once in a lifetime kind of guy and I'm just lucky to be along for the ride.

Even though I'm stressing I'm reminded that I've/we've been really blessed this year.  Here's looking to our new journey in North Carolina!!!

Btw's we're moving to the Raleigh-Durham area I believe it's known as the "Research Triangle" because of how saturated the area is with research facilities, high tech companies, and universities. I'm excited but nervous/scared/anxious if anyone has visited/lived/currently live in the area - tips, suggestions ect are more then welcomed!!

I think I'll be a little spotty on blogger for the next month or so while we're moving and getting settled.

And if you didn't know I'm finally on Instagram!

(I know I know FINALLY right? I'm so late lol)

  1. Congrats on the move and good luck! We're packing to move as well so I know what you're going through right now, girl!

  2. Your hubs is seriously one smart cookie! congrats!
    oo i can imagine packing that closet up will be a tough job. But wow another move! i guess it comes with bitter sweet feelings. i think for me, i'd love to move around just so i can travel the world (well…majority of the world). I say that now but who really knows, but i know i really need to get around more and see the world to broaden my horizons.

    can't wait to see the pics of your move, the new town and your new place (closet)!

  3. awesome! Some of my husband's family is from that area. I've never been, but it's definitely on our list to visit in the future.

  4. If it's ft bragg, avoid living in Fayetteville....seriously!! Consider Southern Pines or a long commute from Cary, but Fayetteville is the worst. Cary is the best Raleigh suburb to be in, IMO.

  5. good luck with the move - it's my least favorite thing!

  6. Good luck with the move. And I'm so following you on Instagram! :)


  7. oh wow!!! Good luck with moving. I know how stressful things can get sometimes when it comes to moving. Especially for you if it's such a long distance too!
