big news

Remember two weeks ago when I alluded to some possible big plans for our future?

Well, it's official now. Papers are signed and J is starting a new job in two weeks. But that's not the big news. The big news is that the job is in...


Yep...we're moving.

I've been a Virginia girl my whole life, but by July, I'll be living in North Carolina. I'm very excited (and a little nervous too), but I'll post about all of that later. I just wanted to share our exciting news with all of you. Also, for those of you in Charlotte (or anywhere nearby) please let me know in a comment or email! I'd love some contacts here!

  5. Hooray! I live in Raleigh, so not SUPER close, but I've lived here all my life so I'm pretty much a North Carolina expert. :)

  13. I'm from Charlotte! Well, I'm in college right now elsewhere, but I am in Charlotte often! Let me know if you have any questions! You are going to love it!

  14. Congratulations! OK, my cousin lives in Charlotte. She is getting married in May and will be starting her life as a newlywed. So many of her friends live there, too. (And her whole family still lives in High Point, which isn't far at all.) Also, my little from Chi O, Annie, whom Tyler knows....is from there originally and her sister still lives there and her mom is AMAZING at helping everyone get settled and whatnot.

    OK, we'll have to talk via e-mail. I can put you in touch with people...and there is also a blogger I "know" who is from outside of Charlotte and she is amazing.

  15. Yay for the Carolinas! I'm actually in Greenville, SC, but my mom was born and raised in Charlotte and still has a brother living in the area! I know how much you loved your visit to Greenville. Now, you'll be about an hour and a half from there! Let me know if you come visit again!
