The second my husband got the job offer I started contacting realtors and looking for electric companies in dallas. I was SO excited to move back home closer to my family and I’ve been praying my husband got an offer at the Dallas office for years. It’s actually a step up for him, career-wise and I’m really proud of how far he’s come in just a few years at work. I had to move with him to New York when he got a great offer there but in my heart I’ve always been a Texan and I couldn’t wait to go back. We’ve been wanting to have kids for a while but we knew we didn’t want to raise them in the city. So now that we are moving to Texas I can bring up the topic again and hopefully sometime in the near future we can start a family! We’re looking for a house that’s big enough to move into and have a couple kids which is also exciting. Obviously in New York we’ve been living in a tiny apartment for years and I’m so, so ready to have a single family home. We’re even going to have a yard – I can’t believe it! I hope my husband likes his new position so we can stay in TX…my family is all there just outside of Dallas and it would be so helpful to have them close by when we actually do start having kids. It’s nice to think that life always does sort of work out the way it’s supposed to and there’s definitely something serendipitous about being able to move back there now. I love the weather and the food and the people are just so nice. The “unfriendly New Yorker” is definitely a myth but you sure can’t beat southern hospitality, no matter how nice the people where you live are! And I’ve missed barbecue more than words can say.
