BIG {Family Related} News!


I don't know about you but I'm sooooo glad it's Friday. This week was plagued with head colds and a sick mommy, which, as you know only seems to happen when the hubs is out of town. But now that it's the weekend and everyone can relax and catch up on sleep, I can totally immerse myself in our new adventure.... that's right, big changes are taking place in my household {no, I'm not pregnant ha}.

WE'RE MOVING! {again} and this time, we're moving to CHICAGO!

That's right, this SoCal girl, her Euro hubs and fam are moving on to the Midwest, a place I can honestly say I never thought I would live. I'm a bit more nervous about the move to Chicago than I was to Switzerland ha. But in all reality, we couldn't be more happy about this opportunity. It's a permanent move -or as permanent as it can be for two people who don't stay in any one place for too long- so we are selling our home in California and buying a new one in the suburbs of Chicago. Everything is going to start happening really quick, as we'd like to be moved in by the end of June. Eeek, I'm going to be a Midwest girl!!

Ok, so now for all you Chicagoans, Midwest mommas, and Illinoisans, I need advice, help, info, tips and friends {really!} on all things moving to this area. I will be headed to Chicago soon for a househunting trip {yes, I applied for HGTV's House Hunters, we'll see how that goes} and would love to talk more with anyone interested in chatting with me.



So that's it! More to come with our adventure soon! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Congratulations! I love Chicago so much! It was one of the cities that I really wanted to live in once I graduated college. I ended up getting a job in Tampa and moving here instead, but Chicago was higher up on my list. It's beautiful, just very cold in the winter.

  6. Awesome! Chicago is one of my favorite cities! I'm from the Midwest (Wisconsin) but have lived in Arizona and California too. It's probably because my family is here, but I love where I live. The seasons, the people, and the feel of it. I think you will love Chicago too. And if you need anything, I'm only about an hour and a half away!

  7. How exciting. You will truly enjoy Chicago. It's too bad you will be in the suburbs and not in the city. Nonetheless, you will have a grand time and a fabulous Summer!
