Change is inevitable. Change is constant.
Benjamin Disraeli

Things 'round here are a changing.

Big time.

Nick has accepted a job offer in St. Louis and we are moving! Oh my goodness, we are moving!

He actually is driving up there to start work on Sunday (yes, as in TOMORROW). We have moved the wedding date from April 2009 to November 2008. I am staying here to keep working, assist with the new tenants in his house and just sort of get my life in order. Oh, and PLAN A WEDDING!

Then I'll moving to St. Louis closer to the wedding (either before or after depending on how my work schedule pans out).

The plan is that we're taking baby steps. He is going to stay with a college friend this week and is close to subletting an apartment whose lease is up in August.

I am planning on making a few trips up there throughout the summer to get the lay of the land and so we can find "our" place. You don't really think I'd let him pick it out alone, do you?!

At first I was really overwhelmed. But now I'm just darn excited. This is a fabulous step up career wise for Nick and is going to lead to life choices in the future that will shape our dreams into a reality. I am sad to leave my job but with solid experience under my belt and a shiny new masters degree I am looking forward to some new possibilities.

So, here's to the next chapter of our lives!

Woa!!! So much HAS changed...I feel so out of the loop, I haven't read your blog in ages (nor have I updated my xanga in ages haha). That's exciting you're moving to the Lou, I have a good friend from college who lives there and loves it. She graduated from Miami with me, moved to Texas for a job for 2 years, then decided she needed to go back to her hometown of St. Louis so she's working there now. And ps...I'm heading back to Philly for good in mid-June...peace out, Florida!
