I can’t believe I’m writing this but it’s officially official! This summer we’ll be making the trek from Dallas to New Haven, CT. C has been accepted to Yale’s MBA program and we couldn’t be more excited (and I couldn’t be more proud!).
We have tons of packing and planning ahead of us. May is shaping up to be a very busy month that includes and trip to London /Scotland and C’s bachelor party. We’re officially giving up our Dallas residency as of June 4th. C is doing a triathlon in Maryland June 9th so we’re planning to get the apartment packed up, drive to Maryland for the race, then finish driving up to CT. 25 total hours. Ouch. Luckily, we’ll get to spend some time with C’s parents when we’re in Baltimore and when we get to CT, we’ll have my Mom’s help! Hooray for being closer to family!
So not only am I planning a wedding for July, but I’m also helping to orchestrate a move AND hunt for jobs. At the end of the day, I’m thankful for C and for new opportunities that we get to pursue together! The next two years will be exciting as we spend our first years as a married couple exploring a new place and making new friends!
We’ll miss our friends in Dallas dearly. We’ve been spoiled by great food, outdoor activities and luxurious living. But I’m looking forward to the new adventure and milder summers! But I think both C and I will need to invest in a nice, warm, puffy down coat.
