I didn’t mean to keep the suspense about where we are moving, but for the sake of our goals & work-related details, we haven’t definitively known until quite recently when we made the decision. but I’m ready to say it now:
we are moving to New York City on April 4th! our most recent trip there for Billy’s birthday really solidified our feelings about the matter. we moved to Belize via Dallas in October 2009 when Billy’s lease was up in Tribeca, and we always had a “one way or another” plan tucked away in our brains about moving back to Manhattan.
the time is now! well, “now” meaning 6 weeks from yesterday…
we both love New York City, and we both feel more creative, inspired, and alive there.
something we’ve been scheming about for months:
we are road-tripping to NYC from Dallas. we will leave on April 4th and head across the southeastern United States, making a couple of stops on our way to Augusta, Georgia where we’ll attend the final round of the Masters Golf Tournament on Easter.
then we’ll continue the road trip sweeping through Richmond, Washington D.C. & Philadelphia before pulling into NY. it will be a different experience to drive a car in Manhattan, but we’ll sell it shortly after we arrive and unpack in our new home.
so there it is! I’ll be blogging throughout the road trip and transition to our new city. blogging while traveling is one of my most treasured aspects of keeping this blog. this new chapter in our lives and marriage will undoubtedly teach us a lot and open up new opportunities that we don’t even know about yet. I hope you’ll come along!
have you ever moved across the country? to a different country?
what is the farthest you’ve ever lived from your hometown?
we lived in Belize for a short time which is ~1,200 miles from Dallas. New York City is ~1,500 miles from Dallas so that’s the winner in this mileage contest!
