Some of you have speculated that something big has been in the works for us since I've been kind of silent lately. The answer is yes. I've been waiting for a few weeks to post this until things are definite, and they're not completely yet, but I thought it was time to mention it anyway.
We're moving to Dallas!
A few months ago, Dave and I decided we were done with New York. Dave is sick of the hours, he'd worked like six weekends in a row, and we'd had it. So we scheduled a trip to Dallas in March and Dave had a couple of interviews. He recieved two offers and has accepted a position at Jones Day.
Emma and I tagged along on Dave's interview trip and went looking at some homes. We fell in love with a fabulous new community called Woodcreek Fate. Technically, the subdivision is in Fate, Texas, but the address and school system is in Rockwall (yes, that is of Jason Castro of American Idolfame). We went out to Dallas again at the end of April and signed a contract to build a home, which should be finished in the Fall.
Isn't that a lovely piece of land? On a cul-de-sac and everything.
The one thing that is holding us back is the sale of our condo. It's been on the market for a couple of months now and we've had a lot of people come to see it, but no bites yet. Is anyone looking for a lovely two-bedroom just minutes from New York??
How do you think Emma looks as a Texan? This was taken at the Fort Worth Zoo.
