Moving Fast

We spent some time last week in Cincinnati preparing for the move and looking at houses. We visited several dozen and found one that we really liked on the second day. We put an offer in that night and it was accepted the following day. We are set to close on August 15, which will also be our first day there. Everything is moving fast...and we are literally moving fast. August 6 will be our last day here in Costa Mesa.

Our new pad is in Liberty Township, located about twenty miles north of Cincinnati. After living in Orange County for more than two years, the economic shift was a little crazy to say the least. (Our house will cost much less than the two bedroom apartment we lived in last year.) We were able to find a newer home with plenty of space, including a (nearly) finished basement and a big backyard. Here are some nice midwestern photos of the new place...





The next few weeks will be busy - lots of good-byes followed by packing, driving, visiting some family, driving some more and then unpacking, painting, buying a lawn mower (who knew?) and all that stuff. I'm excited about it all, except the good-byes, which make me a little sad and uncomfortable. More than everything I'm excited to see what the next season will actually be like. It's all so new and, like I said over and over in the last post, so very unexpected.

I'm suddenly feeling especially bad that I sold your lawn mower last year...

Hey Joe- I would volunteer Justin & I to come help you move into your new home but alas we will be out of town that weekend celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary. If you do need any help after that please know that we are usually around and ready to help.

Wow! You guys are moving to the place where Dave and I grew up! You will be shopping at the same places we shopped. Crazy!!

Stop by and get your bed on the way across the country.....we'll leave the light on.
