So, my news, I am pleased to say, is that my husband has been transferred to Kansas City, aka where I grew up, and where all of the people who are most important to me still live. We knew when we moved up here that this day would probably come. We have been in the NYC Metro for almost 2 years now, and I have to say, that it has been one of the largest learning experiences of my life. I have done things, and seen things that I would have never, in a million years gotten to see and do, had we not ventured up here to begin with. I was untried, and unsure. This place cured me of both.
So, although I am thrilled at the prospect of an easier life in many, many ways, so much closer to the support system of friends and family, I have to admit there is a sense of loss. I know my career will probably be severely limited by this move. But, that doesn't mean I am giving up. I will continue on as I have been. Taking you along with me (if you'll be kind enough to join.) Finding clients as I go, or them finding me, I'll take it as it comes.
This move has been in the works for several weeks, and I wanted to wait til it was a sure thing before sharing it with you. We have been busy bees trying to prepare. And just yesterday, we put an offer in on a house. I'll show more pics if we end up getting it of course.
Thanks for taking this crazy, and always surprising journey with me. I can't tell you how much your comments and emails mean to me. I know I am precisely where I should be in my life, despite the fact that I have no idea what's in store, and it ain't always easy. But, I think that's the case for most of us. Life is full of endings and beginnings. Some large, some small. This one is a doozy for me. It is the happiest and the saddest, all at once.
So, on that note, I will leave you with the song that always played in my head when thinking about if/when this time should come. It's a favorite, and will no doubt be playing on the stereo as I roll out of town.
