We're Moving to New Mexico!

This post was migrated from my Lifeblog.

I’m so very excited! We’ll be living just south of Albuquerque, in a house that belongs to Spencer’s aunt. He’ll telecommute and every other week, we’ll come back out to LA for a few days. How could life look better?? :)

In all seriousness, we feel so very blessed. Spencer telecommuting from home is a dream arrangement we’ve been hoping for since we were married. To be offered this opportunity seems almost surreal.

As for New Mexico, that was our choice. Spencer grew up there and has wanted to move back for years. As for me, well I’m absolutely smitten with it now, but it did take me a while to get there. At first, I found the state brown, scruffy, and poor. It also didn’t help that my first two visits were during unusual or unflattering weather: the first was a record-breaking humidity spell, and the second a very gray week mid-winter. The third time turned out to be the charm. Last week, we arrived to brilliant sunshine, cotton clouds, and the southwest’s signature crisp air. It didn’t take me long to decide that this was home.

And we’ll soon see if I was right! Moving Day is next Saturday, the 27th. Meanwhile, it’s pack pack pack!
