Pack it Up, Baby!October 28, 2014
We are so excited to be moving back to the South that we can't see straight.
This has been somewhat of a long process (you know, Corporate HR hold ups and all that jazz) but we finally have the official papers in hand, so it's as real as it can get.
We've been asked a ton of questions and quite honestly, I really don't have many answers, but I'll do my best!
Blowing the Popsicle Stand that is Northern Maine FAQ:
When are you moving?!
As soon as we sell our house!
We hoped all of this paperwork would have wrapped up a month or so ago because the window to sell a home in Maine is very tight, thanks to the seasons, but we've already met with our realtor and are hopeful we can sell our house before the season shuts us down. If we don't sell it then I guess we'll stay in Maine (with Justin working remotely) until next Spring when the market opens again........that would be the saddest thing ever.
How long have you known???
About six weeks or so.
I never believe any of the moves will happen until the paperwork is in so even though Justin is already working his new job remotely, I thought it would all fall through. I'm super positive.
Is Justin leaving his current company?
Nope, he is just taking a new role on a new team. The new job is very different than the work he's done since graduating but he's super excited to try out a new gig. I don't talk about it much but Justin typical works 10, 12 or 14 hour days. He goes in around 6am and works until around 7pm. This new role will send him out of state/the country occasionally but we're hopeful that his day to day hours will be a little more normal.
Will you miss Maine?
Um....actually a little. We won't miss winter, and hope to hell that we are out of here before the first snow flies (we won't be, that could literally happen any day). But Maine will always be special to us because our baby was born here. We love the 0 humidity, perfect Falls and our home here.
Ya'll sure move a lot.
That's not a question, but yes we do.
We moved from SC to ME right after our Honeymoon, have lived in Maine for 15 months and will head back to SC for the next couple of years. And yes, we own our homes/buy and sell each time.
What are you most looking forward to?
Being closer to our family, finding a new house and decorating the shit out of it, never hearing the following terms again:
-23 degrees (not including wind chill)
cord of wood
forced hot air
And the most common question of all:
Will you rename the blog?
Well, what do ya'll think?
I think that I should and have a name in mind but others (my husband) think that re-branding is not ideal. Would ya'll be up for a name change/new Insta handle/new vibe? Or should we rock out with Newlyweds:North?
We are so beyond excited and will have so, so much going on in the next few months....I can't wait to take ya'll along for the ride!
