I have big… biG… bIG… BIG… HUGE news to share with you!
Come on! Do you think I would have been teasing you for WEEKS just to tell you that?! But… it is a part of the puzzle… a clue if you will. Here is another clue…Taken earlier this year and posted earlier by yours truly HERE. Any guesses on the super big announcement yet?
How about this hint?
If you guessed that I’m moving to Tennessee to take a new job…. you are obviously a genius because that is exactly right!
Yes folks you heard that right – I’m moving to Johnson City, Tennessee and starting a new job! [and let’s face it, I’m fixin’ to acquire a southern accent right quick]
Tennessee… the birthplace of country music, Dollywood, Jack Daniel’s, and the Great Smokey Mountains. Tennessee… a mere 699.91 miles from home and family. Tennessee… a whole new adventure waiting for me!
There is so much going through my mind at the moment and a whole heck of a lot of checklists and spreadsheets started. I start my new job January 3rd. Right after New Year’s. That means between now and then I have to find a new place to live, find some movers, pack up my life, say goodbye to all my friends and family and… let’s not forget the holidays and the craziness they bring anyway!
I’m starting to panic that I won’t have time to do it all. At the same time I am SO excited about starting this new journey! I’ve been wanting to tell everyone for weeks now – I’ve been interviewing since August – but I hope you can forgive the hinting and understand why I have to keep it under wraps for a while.
I am officially done with my current job as of December 17th so if any of you are around the week of Christmas, let’s make some plans for lunch, dinner, a movie… whatever! For now, I plan on leaving the mitten the week of New Year’s and arriving with enough time to get unpacked before the holiday.
Sooo I have to know… was the wait worth the big reveal?
