Under My Feet Baby, the Grass is Growin'

Andrew and I are moments away from embarking on our awesome adventure (finally!). After what seems like a lifetime of waiting, we finally have the moving truck parked in the driveway ready for packing. We plan on arriving to our new house on Monday, which gives us some days to take our time, and more importantly, spend the night with the awesome Partridge family in Houston. I can't think of a better way to start our journey!

For those of you who are in need of a serious update: Andrew and I are moving to Oakboro, North Carolina (outside of Charlotte). Andrew has accepted a job with the Cabarrus Community Health Clinic through the National Health Service Corp. He starts September 26th and I am beyond proud of his accomplishments. The fact that this is all happening in North Carolina is a result of what I like to call "random fate." After Andrew graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio we took the opportunity to look at options outside of Texas and plan a little adventure. The National Health Service Corp. meant that Andrew could apply to jobs literally across the country. We had places from Oregon to Hawaii to New Hampshire to St. Croix picked out. But North Carolina pursued him the most aggressively and after a trip to interview in person he felt he had found "the one." I know that on the surface our choices seem scattered and random, but they were all rooted in our passion to find some new wilderness. So, we are off to find said wilderness in Oakboro, North Carolina! I cannot wait to nest and explore our new environment. We definitely ended up in some of the best wilderness this country has to offer. I plan on using our 10 acres to raise some Nigerian Dairy Goats and grow our own fruitful gardens.

Stay tuned for updates from the road!
