MIA - Big News

This blog has been a little neglected lately. The natural assumption would be that life with a newborn and toddler is crazy, and that's completely true. But we're adding to the craziness even more by planning for a big move in the next few months. Joe got a job offer that was too good of an opportunity to pass up, so we'll be moving to the Bay Area soon. It's an area we've always loved and considered moving to, so we're really excited about these changes, but we're also sad about the friends and family we won't be near anymore. 

In case you're keeping track, this will be Ez's 4th home in just over two years. Thankfully that kid is a trooper and he handles change really well. I've been so impressed with him this past week as we shuffle back and forth between my parent's house and hotels while Joe travels all over the place for work.

I'm also super grateful to my family for making my life much easier while Joe's away. I don't want to be overly dramatic and say there's no way I could've handled these two on my own, but I'm pretty sure we'd be hanging on by a thread. At the very least none of us would've slept the past week and we'd be limited to eating food that comes in wrappers. They've done so much for us, from entertaining Ez, calming Declan, changing diapers, babysitting while Joe and I house hunt, cooking, laundry...the list goes on and on. 

So while we're all looking forward to getting settled and into a new routine, for now I'm choosing to ignore the chaos as much as possible and soak up all this extra family time. Here are a few snaps from our visit:


  1. Wow! Congrats to Joe on a fantastic new job. That's pretty neat. I know nothing of this bay area of which you speak, but you could be professional movers. Y'all should flip houses =) You move often enough. You can do that with a newborn and toddler right? Did you already find a place?

  2. How exciting!!!!! I'm assuming by the Bay Area, you mean San Fran?!

  3. Congrats on the job news and the house!! Very exciting!

  4. Beautiful pictures of your little ones! Congrats on the job! I hope everything keeps going as great as it has been so far!


  5. Yay! Congrats to Joe. The bay area is exciting, good luck! :)
