We spent two years making a decision where to move by researching cities and making lists of our must-haves and would-like-to-haves. We described our ideal home, our ideal city, and our ideal life. The drive was a drive of hope, one where we talked for hours about whether this place would live up to our expectations. Would we be happy there? Would we make a life we want? Would we have kids? Would our kids be happy there?
Four short years later, those questions have been answered. Our life is everything we ever dreamed, with the highlight being these two wonderful 3 year olds:
Four years later, moving to a new city together has been the best adventure to ever happen to us. Nate and Alex are decadent icing on the delicious cake of my life with Jon.
While we have many milestones to celebrate (years together, years married), this one sometimes feels like the biggest because it is the milestone where we took a major leap in the direction of our dreams.
My dream for the next four years: enjoy my time with my best friend and my two boys.
