We've got news...


We're moving... errr... we're taking an extended vacation.


Yes, we're taking a year-long vacation to Baltimore, MD.


My work has provided us the opportunity to move to "the ocean" (or at least that's how we sold it to the children), where I will help in the opening of a regional office and Brandon and the girls will do first grade and pre-K in style. They will take day-trips to DC, Philadelphia and weekend trips to NYC. Or at least that's the plan. [NOTE: We have lived so long without cable its possible they will just lounge on the hotel bed day-after-day soaking in cable television... oh yes, you read correctly - we are living in a hotel for the next twelve months, did I mention this is going to be an adventure?]


But have no fear KC friends, we shall return before you know it for more squelching hot summers and freezing cold winters and the best friends a girl could ask for. It's a short-term adventure, the best type!


We leave in mid-September. Adventure indeed.

Yay to grand adventures, hotel living and fabulous surroundings! Bigger yay that you will be returning to Kansas City!

You HAVE to take a weekend and go to Rehoboth Beach. I'm partial since I spent all of my summers there as a child, but it's such a cute little town. It's very walkable, has a great beach/boardwalk and a little amusement park for the kids.

Okay that made me really sad. Even though I have known, seeing it in writing made it real. We are going to miss you.

How exciting! You will be missed here for sure, but I wish you an amazing year of east coast adventure.

Missy said...

Wow, how exciting! I can't wait to hear all about it!

The best part about Baltimore (I think) is that it still has Panera Bread! And being close to all the East coast has to offer is also great of course. That's where my work does all its training too.:)

Once you live by the ocean it's hard to go back! What an amazing adventure though, so fun!
