by a decision that needed to be made about our house in Evanston. We were planning to put it back on the market at the end of January and get it sold quickly but a few things happened between point A and point B. C's job out here is not all it was supposed to be and he is traveling to the midwest often. Old friends came to visit, followed by my parents, followed by my in-laws (it is a big trip which none us will be able to make very often). Then Sage and I went back and spent some time with our neighbors and bff's in Evanston. All of these things really got us thinking, and talking (and talking, and talking) about what is important and what is smart and what just is. We all truly love our new town. We love the schools, the weather, the produce, the redwoods, and the community that we have dipped our toe into but at the end of the day our home is in Evanston. We know that. And despite all of the drama we endured last summer that door is still open and I truly believe that there is a reason for that. So we have decided that we will be moving back across the country to our lovely old house by the lake once school is out. Hashing all of this stuff out and talking to the kids and letting people know has taken all of my energy over the past few weeks (thank you for being patient). But now it's like a weight has been lifted and I am ready to get back to work. Of course the wheels are already turning about what is will take to move again but for the next few months my plan is to enjoy where I'm at (although i have already started obsessing over what color to paint the living and dining room when we get back home....).
Thanks for listening.
