it's official...

we are moving back to miami. it is one of those bitter sweet situations. i know that lovey was really hoping for this masters program but i am happy to going back to our home town. we have 10 weeks left in gainesville and i only have 8 more weeks of work! don't get me wrong, i love my job... but there are days that i wish we were rich so that i could be a stay at home wife and just do crafts all day and play with my crazy puppy. but that's not real life... i need to work to support my attorney of a husband with my preschool teacher salary (hehehe). i have a feeling (i may just be hopeful) that things are going to be very good for us in miami.

as much as i have complained about living in this small college town, there are a lot of things i will miss about it...
1. driving to and from work with alex every day!! its so nice to spend those extra 15 minutes together in the morning and in the afternoon.. we definitely won't be able to do that in miami :(
2. the local restaurants. i love that most of the places here use locally grown products on their menus. everything is so fresh and organic
3. NO TRAFFIC! i cannot stress this one enough. it takes me 15 minutes to get to work and i live on the opposite side of town. in miami it would take me 45 minutes to get to work, and that was on a good day.
4. i am mostly going to miss having my lovey to myself. i know it sounds selfish BUT i love that we dont live in the same city as our families sometimes. we don't have to go to family dinners when we don't want to, we can just stay home and "ignore" phone calls, and we get to spend so much time together just the 2 of us. i know that is going to change as soon as we move.

i am also going to miss our first home. its a HUGE apartment and so comfy. AND CHEAP!! we have already been looking for apartments in miami and our apartment (a one bedroom) is significantly larger than most two bedroom apartments. max is probably going to have a more difficult time with the space then we will.

all in all... IM EXCITED!

  1. When you move do not let your families dictate your relationship or your time. Make sure you two stay in control and do not let yourselves feel obligated to bend to the whims of your families. Spending time with them is all well and good but you two are newlyweds and need alone time much more than family time.

    and I think everything will work itself out in Miami too : )
