The next chapter.

The Wasatch mountains. Sept 2011.

On Tuesday morning (the same day I wrote this post) I thought we'd be living in Boston for at least another 18 months.  And then, later that day, I found out we'd only be living here until the end of August!  After 16 years of working at his current company, Lee has decided to move in a different direction with his career.  We just aren't sure what that different direction is quite yet.

It is both thrilling and terrifying all at once.

We do know that we will be moving back into our beloved loft in downtown Salt Lake City.  Two adults.  One toddler.  Two cats.  All in 1,000 square feet.  And, oh.  Because it's a loft, there are no dividing walls and the only doors in the place are the front door and bathroom door.  It will be challenging.  But we are totally up for the challenge!  And we have some pretty grand plans for the space that I can't wait to share with you.

Lee will take the next few months off to spend time with Alice and me.  We'll do a bit of traveling.  We'll do a bunch of mountain biking.  I'll do a lot of blogging.  And we'll both do some figuring out on what our plans are for the future.

What is the scariest/most exciting career move you've ever made?  Moving to Boston and working in the E.R. at Mass General was sort of scary for me.  I mean, after seeing some of my future coworkers on Boston Med, wouldn't you be nervous?!

Home, sweet home! Downtown SLC.

Weekly workouts: Monday - Rest day! Tuesday - Crossfit: 5 sets of 3 good morning squats (95lbs), then 63 kettle bell snatch with overhead lunge (26lbs).

  1. Congratulations you guys!! So exciting. I wish you all the luck in the world. :) I can't wait to see how everything unfolds. AND that loft is AMAZING! No wonder you want to go back so badly!

  2. Your plans sound great. Family time & mountain bike riding, my husband is very jealous. And your loft looks awesome. No walls with a one year old may be a little challenging but I'm sure you'll all get used to it. Can't wait to hear about your adventures x

  3. Big changes... but oh so exciting. It will be so nice to see you, Lee and Alice more than once every 6 months. I'm so happy!

    If you can move to Boston and work in one of the largest hospitals in the USA, then Lee's job change is just a small bump in your journey together.

    The loft has some great possibilities, just a little experimenting with your space and it will work out just fine. See you in a few weeks.

  4. So exciting! I love your loft and can't wait to see what you guys have in store. There are so many ways to make more private space in a loft- it's going to be great.

  5. i am in love with your loft! so happy for you two! it's scary but will be so worth it. scariest thing i ever did was move 4 hours away after knowing my husband for a week to be with him! it worked out okay, though ;)

  6. ps, we met in a bar while i was up visiting a friend, not online haha. forgot to add that part.
