Bittersweet Change

So it is official: We are leaving. My husband, Conrad (pictured here) and I are leaving San Diego and making our way east. We have found jobs in Louisville, Kentucky and will be relocating in 3 weeks! A tough decision to make but one that we think will end up being the best for us in the long run. We’ll be getting closer to some family but farther away from other family. We’ll miss the beach and the great friends we’ve made but are looking forward to re-connecting with old friends and making new ones. My friends, Jason and Jenn Burton have a quote on their website from Helen Keller that sums it up perfectly. “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

  1. Why does this make me so sad, and I’m all the way in Australia?! Maybe it makes me sad b/c I won’t be there to say goodbye. 🙁 I am excited for you, Ami. I’d love an email with a more detailed update!!!

  2. I hate to say that selfishly I’ve been thinking about how it was even more unfortunate that you were not here now that I need you to whoop me into shape for the wedding. I need you!!!

  3. Sara – we’ll be back to visit soon. You’re halfway across the world anyway. Whitney – I’ll be home in two weeks! When’s the date? We’ll do this : )

  4. People come, people go…

    I came to San Diego with my husband from Italy.. and it was a really tough decision to make!!
    And I started my blog as well (sorry, everything there is in Italian 😛 ).
    But I understand your state of mind: happy and sad!
    Good luck!
    I’ll follow you on your blog! 🙂
