Homeward bound

Okay, I am finally ready to announce my huge, huge news.

In approximately three weeks I will be moving to New Hampshire!

Yes, I am moving home to New England after spending the past eight years in Indiana. I can’t believe I’m doing this; I have a new job lined up, of course, and I am planning on living in a small town right on the coast. I’ll be two hours away from my family, three hours away from Cape Cod, an hour away from Boston, and four hours away from New York City. I’ll be surrounded by Red Sox fans and shrimp pizza and people punctuating their sentences with the word ‘wicked’. To say I am excited would be an understatement.

Of course, I will miss the fantastic people I’ve met while living in this state. I never thought I’d ever make the friends I’ve made here, but I am confident we will all remain friends, no matter where we are located. Plus, they’ll all just have to come out and visit New England sometime, right guys?

The next few weeks will be busy; apartment hunting, coordinating movers, and, of course, getting together with all the people I will miss so much and eating at all my favorite restaurants before I leave. Still, I am very excited and am looking forward to what the future will bring for me.

  1. I’m really, really excited for you :) I know you’ve wanted to move back and I remember your attitude about it being sort of settled where you are and maybe “someday” you’d get to go back – and you’ve made it a reality! all YOU! can I come visit?! :)

  2. *sniff*sniff* I’ll miss you! But maybe I’ll end up on the coast too. *crossing my fingers*

    Congratulations! I’m excited and happy for you! :)

  3. Congratulations! Hope the move goes smoothly. :)

  4. congratulations, again! :D I’m so excited for you.

    the general compactness of New England boggles my mind.

  6. Yay!!!! Of course I will come visit, cos either I’ll be there and it’ll be “I’m just popping out for coffee with Aubrey” or I’ll be stuck in the South, in which case it’ll be me using every minute of vacation time to come hang out with liberals and libraries ;o)

  7. I’ll be sorry to see you go, but I’m so happy for you. I think we’re moving further west to be closer to family when we’re done here, but if we end up putting in time in DC, I’ll have to find excuses to head up north.

  8. Yay :)

    but i will still annouce my bosox hatred if anyone asks. wait, did you say shrimp pizza? i could give that a shot…just don’t ask me to call it “wicked.”
