Salt Lake City, UT
Do you ever listen to the Pet Shop Boys? If not, you should. When I started college in utah and my "home base" was Michigan, my sister and I would take flights back and forth from Michigan to Utah for school breaks. Each time we flew to Utah, the song, Go West would pop into my head. Check it out for the best in computer graphics!
Speaking of going west, Josh and I decided we are picking up and moving to Utah! We feel so fortunate for the opportunity. Josh is quitting his job and getting back into science to do a post doc at the University of Utah. We will be living in Cedar Hills temporarily, then probably move up to Salt Lake. When we leave is uncertain. We'll see if we can get our current apartment rented.
All this seems so sudden! Before Christmas things were getting unstable at Josh's work here in Boston. A big client had been lost and there has been talk of lay offs. The minute Josh went into business we both instantly missed science. I'm so excited for Josh to go back to it and work towards becoming a professor.
Also a major plus is that we will get to be with these guys:
(don't mind Noah's dirty look!)
and these guys:
I can't even begin to list the people, places, and things I will miss in Boston. Our kids grew up here. This is the place we have lived the longest as a family. We came here on Noah's fourth birthday. Now he is practically a teenager! Being so far away from family, this is where we have made life long friends. So bittersweet.
