Over the River and Through the Woods

To Florida we go...

I Decided. Yes. It's true. I am willing to move to Florida.

Here's the scenario for those who haven't heard about this yet...

My boyfriend Scott has been offered a very lucrative position for a company in Key West, Florida. He has worked for this company before in this location and enjoyed it very much.

After a lot of thought, planning and prayer I have decided to join him. I will be keeping the house I just bought with my roomate in March, and I have been guaranteed a job if/when I come back.

This is not a permanent move, it is 2-4 years. I will probably work full time until my personal debts are paid off and then my plan is to work part time and go back to school, which I've been wanting to do for a long time.

Am I throwing everything away for a guy? No. I'm not throwing ANYTHING away, I'm just not taking everything with me! If I had decided not to go to Key West, Scott would decline the position.

I will be able to travel to the west coast multiple times a year to visit family and friends, and if for any reason I hate living in Florida (Riiiiiiiiiight) we will move back.

Scott is now in the negotiating stages of the accepting process and then once he is out of the Marines (August 13), he will head down and find us a place to live. I won't be leaving until after my birthday.

Love you all... and when you're done visiting Jake and Kara in Hawaii, come visit me in the Florida Keys.

You didn't mention that you were moving to Key West! In that case... ;)

Have you been to Key West? It's so great there! It's definitely my favorite vacation spot besides Hawaii (which I guess isn't a vacation spot to me anymore!)

Watch out for New Years Eve, they shut down main street and it becomes like a Mardi Gras scene. Very CRAZY!

You guys need to learn how to SCUBA dive too. Then when whenever one of us visits the other, we can dive together and show off the local scene!
