Yup, it’s true – we’re moving to Cape Cod!
I’m sure it doesn’t come as a surprise to any regular readers that Jason and I LOVE CAPE COD (and don’t so much love New York…), so this summer we decided it was time to take a leap and make a MAJOR change and move up there!
To make a long story short (and I’ll elaborate in a future post!), it all started with a conversation on the beach one day when we talking about how much we were both dreading leaving the Cape to go back to New York. It’s never felt quite right that we spent 11 months out of the year living somewhere we really weren’t happy just because of jobs looking forward to the 1 month we got to spend on Cape Cod every summer.
So, we decided if one of us could find a job (with health insurance!) by the time we were supposed to leave the Cape, we’d stay!
Well, literally less than 4 days later I was offered a job! (Seriously, 4 days! Day 1 – sent resume, day 2 – phone interview, day 4 – in person interview and job offer!)
So after a lot of debating, many phone calls to our parents (who were immeasurably helpful and supportive – THANK YOU!), and endless pros & cons and life priority lists we decided to go for it!
We’re in New York packing now, on Thursday we head to California for the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend and when we get back we have just a few days to finish packing and move before I start my new job!
It’s incredibly scary and a huge leap outside our comfort zone to make such a major life change (two people who aren’t really big fans of change!), but we’re hoping that it will prove to be the right choice for us.
