.... we haven't even told some of our closest friends, so feel special ladies! Also...it doesn't really effect any of you, well maybe except Robin who I was hoping would come and visit me in Baltimore and go to Fleming's together....
Last Wed Jake accepted a job offer in Utah. He starts in 3ish weeks. (I know, not that exciting for the blog world)
So..... this is a big deal. I mean its over 2,000 miles away. We have little kids, a 4 bedroom house to pack and sell, 3 cars, and my career will switch from teacher to full time mommy (at the moment).
(Did I mention I also have 4 cupcake orders and my huge wedding I'm planning, a trip to NY, Zoey's bday and my parents coming down all in the next 3 weeks as well?)
I'm a bit.....overwhelmed, but it honestly feels so right.
I really feel good about letting it be Jake's time to take the lead and provide for his family. He has really be struggling to find a job out here and this bank in Utah loves him and have offered him the job multiple times. This time we just realized that our savings account is vanishing quickly with our ever increasing mortgage and utility bills, my school district prob wouldn't be giving teachers raises for a long time, and if we ever wanted baby #3 we are going to need some family around to help us (Jake's fam is all out there). So, it just clicked and we are taking a leap of faith.
I actually will be finishing out the semester here in Baltimore and will be in charge of packing, cleaning, selling the house and cars. Jake and the babies will go and live with his parents until I can wrap things up out here. I will be making trips back and forth to see my babies, skyping DAILY and crying my eyes out most night...but in the end I feel like this is going to be great for our family.
More to come I'm sure as we figure it out! But off to finish some cake pops and then drop into bed after a killer Zumba class by the awesome-est guy Zumba instructor tonight! It was intense!!
