Man, I have A LOT of catching up to do with you all! In the last few weeks, Cory and I have been through what I coined as an “running an emotional marathon.”
Sometimes, you look for opportunities in life – and sometimes opportunities come looking for you. Three weeks ago, a gentleman that Cory met two years ago through his MBA program’s board of advisors called Cory out of the blue and offered him a job.
A great job.
A great job that he didn’t even know existed.
We were both left pretty shocked and blind sided. We’re comfortable and happy with what we’ve got goin’ on. We weren’t looking for change, so when this (really good, really exciting) opportunity knocked on our door, we didn’t know what to do.
We weighed the options for days. Nothing else consumed our minds or conversations. Cory went through several important business dinners and calls while I impatiently waited for his report back. We contemplated my schooling, The Life Plan (Yes, we have one. Get over it), his job, and so much more.
After much back and forth, weighing the options and realizing that there really isn’t any reason NOT to take the job - we decided to go for it!
In three weeks, we’ll be moving to Richmond, Virginia to start a new chapter of our lives! We’re so excited for this opportunity and I could not be any more proud of Cory. Talk about making a good first impression!
I’ll be commuting to school for the remainder of the semester, which is no big deal at all. Then, come the end of April I’ll start looking for a j-o-b the keep me busy (and my wallet full) before my internship starts in September.
To say I’m nervous about the move and starting our lives somewhere new is an understatement. I’m devastated about leaving my parents and our good friend here. On the other side of the coin, I’m beside myself with excitement. Mainly because these two mugs will be within minutes of our new abode
Knowing that they’ll be close enough to have weekly dinners, random shopping dates, sleepovers when Cory travels, and serve as helpful guides when I call them crying because I’m lost in the bowels of Richmond makes me so happy.
So there you have it, friends! My first real-life move is around the corner!
