Since October (I'm not exaggerating), we've been waiting. Waiting for interviews. Waiting to hear back from interviews. Waiting some more. Waiting for the cycle to happen all over again. And it has been... well, trying to say the least.
Honestly, Brian has been such a trooper. There was excitement which seemed to always be followed by heartache.
Meanwhile, I've just been waiting to know what we're going to do and where we're going to be before I could move on with my career plans... (not that I have any quite yet!)
Alas, our answer is finally here. On Friday, Brian officially accepted a position here in Atlanta. It's a great job, with a considerable income change from the nanny and grad student we currently are.
And mostly, I'm just excited. The beautiful thing was that I have been in a position of excitement regardless of where we were going and what we're doing. I would have been genuinely happy regardless of our location, but I am pretty excited to stay here for awhile longer. We have a good life here, and I don't really feel like our time here is finished yet.
While I still miss home (Boulder, Colorado)....
Atlanta isn't so bad...
Plus, we've made a lot of fun memories here so far. This picture was taken at a crazy little Italian restaurant (Il Localino) in an area of town called Inman Park.
This was taken at a friends birthday party at King Plow Arts Center, in West Midtown (one of our favorite areas of town).
And of course, we've hit up a few Braves games while we've been here. I'm no baseball fan, but Braves games are pretty fun!
So now, we have some decisions to make about our new life here... we want to live in a house. And I think we might buy one! This is big news for us and will be VERY exciting for us if it all works out.
We'll see! I'll keep you updated... but in the mean time, I'm heading out of town for the rest of the week. One of the perks of being a nanny is I get a spring break! When I return, I'll write a post about how we're taking this vacation on a tight budget.
