I mentioned recently that we have big things going on over here. Now that everything is confirmed I can announce:
WE ARE MOVING TO IOWA!
I have accepted a position as Director of Nursing at a skilled rehab facility in a small town outside of Des Moines. We love the town, we already found a FOUR BEDROOM HOUSE (!!!!) to rent within walking distance to work, and this town has a coffee shop within a short walking distance of work and home.
We move on the 27th, and I plan on updating on our progress somewhat frequently. Be sure to follow our Facebook page for moving day updates too!
This job comes with an enormous raise as well, and we are very much looking forward to crushing our financial goals. Yes, while my first thought was “let’s go all organic on everything,” my finance-savvy husband is keeping me in check (as per usual). We are keeping our same standard of living until we are debt-free and our savings goals are met, which honestly won’t take very long.
I already talked to the editor I work with at St. Louis Magazine and she said I can still write for them. I seriously love being a health blogger for StlMag and was about to be thoroughly bummed to not be able to write for them anymore. So good news that I don’t have to give that up!
That all being said, moving away on short notice is a bit crazy. We are soaking up our last week and a half as St. Louisans visiting all our favorite places, including where Peter and I had our first dates, and spending time with friends between packing and organizing things from long-distance.
A toast to new adventures!
