Either way, I have some news ...
I know. Crazy, right?
So, we've actually already landed back in the Mitten. In fact, it's been about 6 weeks now since we said goodbye to the Sunshine State and headed north.
To make a long story short, Brian's company is expanding to SE Michigan and as Program Manager, Brian was definitely included in the move. It all happened pretty quickly, and before I knew it 2 months had passed since I last sat down to write anything
While we wait for Brian's company to find a permanent spot for their new location and try to decide where we ultimately want to live, we're staying with Brian's parents. They live in a big house with lots of space for us and they've been incredibly accommodating. We're so blessed to have a place to land while life works itself out. Don't get me wrong, squeezing 4 adults, 3 kids, and 5 dogs into one house, no matter how big it is, is not without its' challenges. But we're making it work and focusing on the positives while working out the kinks.
Now that we're a bit more settled, I look forward to taking the opportunity to sit down and let some thoughts out of this crazy head of mine every once in awhile! Since about 4 minutes after she stopped crying happy tears about our move, my BFF has been nagging me about changing my blog name to "I'm Flying North". But it's staying "South" for now. Even though we literally moved back north, writing is so cathartic for me that I feel like I've taken a bit of a vacation after I click "Publish". So while "I'm Flying South" started as a very literal description of life, it has transformed into a figurative description.
Well, that and it'd be too much work to change the blog name and I already have enough shit to do.
