5 Years Later!

Hello Hello!

Long time no type!  Today I thought I'd take some time and do a review on my life since it's been 5 years without an update!

The last time I posted my family was happily living in North Carolina; my husband, son, and I.  In May 2014, after many talks, a job offer, and the listing of our first home; we chose to move to Virginia (my home state).  At the time of our move our house had not sold so we chose to list with a real estate agent and take residence with family until things settled down and became more stable.

In February 2015 my little family moved out of the family home into a temporary apartment, which was just right for us.  Along the way my husband went through a few promotions and finally became a Supervisor after 10 years of working with the company.  I rejoined the workforce as well and continued with a local Orthopedic company until May 2016 as things began to change.

In February 2016 when our lease was up we had the final discussion of where would our future take us and where we wanted to raise our family and decided that our lives would be taking us back to North Carolina to settle and continue our lives.  During this time we did tons of house hunting and could never come up with a feasible housing option in Virginia.  The housing market and value is just that much better in NC so we settled on moving back.

In May my husband moved to NC ahead of us and in July we joined him.  I haven't been working since May for other reasons (to be explained later) so for right now I stay at home with my now 6 year old son. It has been a scary and wonderful journey that definitely keeps me on my toys but I am grateful for the trip and hopefully where it will land us.

Thanks for reading my long update and please make sure to check back for a huge life update later this week!
