A whole new begining....

Yesterday I did it! I gave my two weeks notice. In a few short weeks I will be surrounded by other Seattle-ites. I can't wait. All I need now is a job, an apartment and a moving truck. :) (I actually won't need a moving truck because my fix-it-all dad is gracious enough to offer to tote all our crap on his trailer he has. Thanks, Dad! And my sister is nice enough to put me up in her house, so really all I need is a job)
The biggest hurdle we have actually had has been our parents. (God bless 'em, we love em, but we don't need the guilt trips.) So let me say this to all the "mothers" and "fathers" out there who think we are crazy: We know it is going to be hard. We firmly believe in sacrificing in order to get into a better situation. We know we are crazy to leave the life we have here in the 'Tah to move away with no jobs. We know that if this is a total disaster we will be once again living in the basement of our parents house. But we also know that we have to try. We have wanted to live there for ages and have really nothing keeping us here. (no house payment, no car payments, no kids, no huge bills.) We are only a phone call away or a $99 flight. :) So thanks for all the worry but we will be fine, really. :) That is a load off my chest, now back to the boxes....

I am so excited for you guys! Don't feel guilty nor let anyone make you feel that your decision is wrong. only you and travis know what you need to do and where you should be.. I think it is wonderful that you are making this leap! I am going to miss you but know you are doing what you need to do in this time. Like you said, you will never know until you try... Best of luck!!!
