Sometimes I'm so busy trying to document the little things around here, that I forget to mention big things.
A few months ago, Larry decided to join The Central Utah Clinic where he will finally be practicing his specialty in Infectious Diseases. It's been a long ten years of medical training, and we are so excited to be moving on to this stage of his life. Larry has been joking that he has been putting off making any money as long as he possibly can.
Neither of us would have predicted we ever would be moving back to Provo, Utah. I have to admit I was not so excited about the location (I am a big city girl, through and through), but it's a great career opportunity for Larry and an extra bonus is that we'll be close to some of our family.
It feels a little weird moving back to a place we lived ten years ago. We've both grown up so much since then, and the city has changed a lot too. I have exactly one friend there, but I'm telling myself that we're sure to meet cool people there, right? And you know I love exploring new cities. I'm sure there will be lots of things to fall in love with there as well as some old favorites (J-Dawgs, drives up to Sundance, and breathtaking views of the mountains to name a few)
We looked at homes a few months ago and were far from falling in love with anything so we decided to build. We had plans in hand, but after a few weeks of frustration, we saw every lot on the market and came up empty handed because none of them were ideal. That night, I checked the MLS and saw a home I new Larry would love. The very next day we made an offer and we were in contract. We got our keys last week, and we'll probably be moving around the end of the month (third move in a year, and hopefully the last for a very very long time).
It feels good and a little intimidating to be a home owner again. I'll try to post pictures soon, I promise!
