a change is gonna come.


many things are happening around here. many good and exciting things.

there is the obvious, it’s finally feeling warm in new england!!! the sun shines past the clouds and rain about four days out of seven! wahoooo! the Red Sox have had the most exciting start to their season this year, and we hope the goodness continues. there have also been some unexpected changes in our life lately. because of all the snow days we had this winter, our kids will be in school till june twenty-SIXTH and shortly after that it looks like this family of six will be setting out on a new adventure. there’s been a change of plans, instead of staying here in boston and continue to indefinitely settle down, we are packing up and relocating out west again. we have heavily considered southern california {specifically laguna beach where my husband has family} and utah. as of today it looks like utah is pulling in the lead! it looks like it’s about time to find a moving company for our belongings and another auto shipper, while we’re at it! the best word to describe this move: bittersweet. we will miss so many amazing people here in massachusetts, but we also know we are returning to what feels like home to us. yes, there are many good things to come…

i am planning to share more of these things with you as they draw closer and utah, we are excited to call you home. again. ahhh… i just said that out loud!

*picture: the organizing and packing is underway. we have just over seven weeks till we leave.

  5. What a wonderful and bittersweet announcement indeed! I have loved living through you and your family with my own dream to live in Boston. But, I am happy to hear you are excited about your new adventure. I will have to say that I would love to see you move to So Cal…just so I selfishly could see what amazing things you would do there! But…if it’s Utah, they are lucky again to have you and your beautiful family 🙂 much love! xoxo

  11. Having moved my kids around while they were growing up, I think Utah was the right decision! However, I was hoping you would’ve said Sequim!
