Start Spreading The News

We're leavin' today. Okay, maybe not today, but in a month. We decided we were simply too comfortable here in Virginia and needed to change things up a bit. So we will be moving for one year to... drum roll please... New York City!

We are really excited, and totally freaked out. Think of all the fun things we'll be able to do! (I just have to keep telling myself that every time I start hyperventilating).

David will still be with The Firm, just doing a different type of work. We will be living in Manhattan, so it will be fun to experience true city life. It's going to be a huge change, and at this point I'm really not sure whether or not I can live without Costco, but we will manage to adjust. There is a grocery store right across the street from our new apartment and several playgrounds nearby. We need to invest in some warmer winter clothing so Michael and I don't spend the next few months trapped indoors.

So look for us when you watch the Macy's Parade, and when you watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's - We'll be there!

Wow....WOW!! That's incredibly exciting and unexpected. Was it as unexpected for you? Can we come visit? I've always thought it would be cool to live in New York City for a little while. One year is perfect! Good Luck!!

Wait a second...that means you'll be leaving us! You'll be missed!! I assume you'll be coming back to the same exact spot here in Virginia or do you have to sale your house?

Have I mentioned about 300 times that I'm so jealous? I'd join you at the Macy's parade, but you can guess how well that would go over with my family.

and can we get rid of word verification? I swear you won't be over-run with spam

Bonnie said...

Okay EHRL, just because I love you I removed the word verification.

WOW. That is awesome! I love the vibrancy of Manhattan - and all of the things to do there (and the food!). A year would be perfect. How exciting.

One side of my family originated from NYC - I think that's where I got my urban wanderlust.
