W is for I've been holding out on you.

So my beloved blog readers. I have not been entirely honest with you.
It's really more a lie of omission in that I haven't shared a big huge thing that's been brewing in my life. I've been keeping a big secret, waiting for the right time to share the news, not wanting to put the cart before the horse, and it's been really hard (if you know my secret keeping track record). I alluded to it here and there but now I'm going to give it to you straight up.

I will be trading Washington D.C for Washington state.

Phew. It feels good to get that off my chest. Thanks for letting me share.
buh bye now.

psych! I wouldn't do that to you, drop a bomb and then walk away, but I don't know the exact when, or the how. I just know the why and that's T.J.

He will be starting his 5 year surgical residency at Madigan Army Medical Center on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, in Tacoma, Washington.
So we are heading out West!

I'm not sure I've ever really mentioned that he's in the Army or that he's in med school before but I am now. We are so excited for this new adventure! I've never been to the West Coast before and I just think it will be the funnest thing to start our new lives together in a brand new place.

A place that can be just ours in a new town.
Where we can find our favourite place to become regulars.
Where I'll cook my first Thanksgiving dinner and we'll decorate our first Christmas tree.

Washington is where we will move into our first house that we'll make into a home.
Where we'll have cookouts when it's not raining, and movie nights when it is.
Where we'll make new friends and start newlywed lives.

W is for Washington- here we come!

  2. Oh, how exciting and I know that you and yours will work it out to see each other as often as it is feasible. Our daughter and family has lived away for 11 years and in June will be moving to within 3 hours of us and we are beside ourselves with excitement. But, we have made it work and that's what you will do. I have a sister in law in Tacoma and have been there and it is a great place with lots to see and do. I can't wait to hear the wedding date.

  3. You're travelling all the way to the other side of the continent? No wonder you had trouble confessing. In Australia it's okay to move to the west from the east. It's a sin to move south to Melbourne or north to Brisbane though. ;)

  5. Very exciting! I think you will love Washington it's so pretty and there is lots to do! I was born there and lots of family still there. Seattle is close by and such a fun city. The weather is not always rainy but probably no different that England! It's hilly there and they do get snow so. You can do day trips or weekend trips to San Juan Island are amazing little B&B's . Great place for your family to visit!
