But, this time it's a little different. This time, we're choosing to go rather than being mandated by the company. We've decided to move back to Charleston. Our home went on the market last week and we've had several showings, so we're optimistic that it will sell quickly and we can transition back to the East Coast in a couple of months.
It's very exciting and also a little bit scary. I moved to the Midwest when I was 18. Wichita was the site of many big starts for Chris and I. He started with the company he's with now, in Wichita. We got engaged and bought our first home there. We also had our second baby there, when we moved back for another one of Mr. B's promotions. We spent 18 months in Branson, after Wichita, and we got married and had our first child there. Kansas City (our home site now) is where I got my first professional writing gig and all subsequent freelance work since. I've met so many wonderful people, the boys have made good friends. These past two years have been some of the absolute best that we've spent out here in the heart of America. I don't regret it....
However, home is calling me back. I couldn't stay out here forever. The East Coast will always have my heart. The beaches, the people, the way of life...it's a different culture. It's my culture.
For now, we wait for our home to sell and celebrate our last few months surrounded by all we've held dear here.
The blog will transition as well, from our lives here to life back on the Coast. I've already been dreaming up new designs and thinking of all the places I want to take you when I get back. It'll be an adventure for YOU, too!! ;)
Thanks for sticking around, continuing to read and reaching out via email, Facebook and Instagram. As always, you guys are the BEST. xo
