I have some exciting news….

July 27, 2011
WE ARE MOVING. 🙂  I never thought I would be able to say that. It has been our dream to move to the south for years, but it had not been Gods plan for us. We accepted the fact that my husband may never find a job down south and we would be stuck only visiting for vacations.  We either go to Savannah, GA,  Charleston, SC, or Florida during spring break and summers off.  So, when we heard the news on Friday, we were just overwhelmed with joy! We are moving to South Carolina.  We’re not sure if we will stay in Ohio until our home sells or live in temporary housing until then.  We will decide this week.  For now, I am packing, tossing, and cleaning like a mad woman to get ready for my moving garage sale and for the realtor to put our home on the market.  I will be blogging about our move so you will get a glimpse into our lives for the next while. 🙂  I hope you enjoy the journey with us.

    Congratulations on the move! Since we are just wrapping up that whole process of moving, I only wish you the very best. We are only moving 3 hours away, but it still means packing everything carefully. We found and bought the new house that will become our home, and sold our existing one all within 5 months. Now we are just a week away from the big move. So good luck again!

  17. Libby says:

    Well, come on down! I’m in NC, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy Charleston. Welcome to the part of the country where it’s all about the sweet iced tea. lol

  18. Congratulations! I’ve lived in SC my whole life and love it (except during the summer… it’s freaking hot here). Charleston is my favorite city in the world- is there where you’re going or somewhere else in SC? Welcome to the Palmetto State!

    CONGRATS TONI!! I love that part of the world. Back when I was living on a sail boat we stayed a few weeks in Beaufort, South Carolina and a few weeks at Charleston Harbor. I absolutely fell in love with the area, so many beautiful homes and historical things to see. Really looking forward to seeing your photography of S.C.

  21. Rissa Rae says:

  40. Tedi says:

    Awesome! South Carolina is my favorite place to go on vacation! We live out in Utah, so it’s hard for us to travel there every year. We love staying at Pawley’s Island. My extended family rents several beach houses and we just chill for a week. Congrats on your move and a new job!

  41. Congrats on the move! And to such a beautiful part of the country! We lived in NC for a year & I loved it! We were only able to make a visit to Columbia one weekend, but it was so much fun! Never did make it to Charleston or Savannah though, but I will someday! Good luck with your garage sale & move!
