Exciting News!

This is what I posted on Facebook: "The last 3 years in Alabama have been good to us! We've enjoyed our jobs, made some wonderful friends, AND we got Little Bit (what more could we want?!). However, we have missed family and friends (and the weather) back home. So we are happy to announce that, when we get back from Ukraine this summer, we will be moving back to California! Julie was offered a job at a school in San Jose, and Peter is excited to move to a location that has plentiful options for his career."

But you guys know the truth. 

The last 3 years have been HARD. I've had ups and downs with my job. We've missed family. We've stressed about weather (TORNADOES ARE THE WORST). Overall, it wasn't quite what we were expecting. But that's ok. We've also learned a lot. We've grown as a couple. We've actually made some really incredible friendships. And, of course, we got our fur-baby. So it's a bittersweet time.

We are super excited to move closer to friends, and I'm thrilled about my new job. I think I'm going to love it! (More job-details to come soon... Don't worry, I'm still teaching music!) We think Peter will have some great opportunities for his career in Silicon Valley. We are a little stressed about the crazy cost of living in San Jose, but overall we're looking forward to returning to a city we already know and love. (And also looking forward to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's!).
