We Are Moving – Again

August 3, 2016|Posted in: Personal


I can’t believe I am writing this post and it’s a really hard one to write but we are moving. Again.

After being in Nashville for only a year and a half, we are now making our way to Charleston, South Carolina. It’s hard to believe that in January of last year we moved here to Nashville from Chicago and now we are already moving again. With an extra child in tow!

The reason we are moving is a common one that causes most people to move – my husband’s job. He was offered a dream job. A job that would be doing something he truly loves and enjoys. You might think that because of this it was an easy decision but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

I wish I could say I was immediately supportive of the job and excited. Truthfully, I wasn’t. Brett and I have always been very supportive of each other’s dreams. But until now, one of our dreams didn’t come at such a cost.

We just bought our “forever home” in Nashville, moved, I was pregnant, have a job of my own, and we have family (my parents) that live close by. Nashville is where we thought we would be for a long time and raise our family. But as I’m learning, life doesn’t always work out this way. As much as you want to plan out your whole life, things might get thrown at you to mess that up when you least expect it.

I will admit I was angry and frustrated. I wanted Brett to have his dream job but that meant giving up so much. I wasn’t sure if it was worth it. I still don’t know if it will be. But that’s the thing, you don’t know until you try.

So finally, I came around (okay, maybe I’m still working on completely coming around and accepting this). I realized that we can always buy another home. I can find another job if I really have to. And honestly, we can always move back if we want to. But Brett isn’t always going to get a job offer like this. So the timing is terrible and I’m definitely nervous for this move, but we are going to do it.

Brett is my biggest supporter. He was so proud of me when I got my MBA and has never once complained about those student loans (sorry babe!). He encourages me to continue my blog and he didn’t protest even a little when I wanted to get certified as a personal trainer too. He believes in the dreams I have of one day starting my own small business. I know he will back me up on things I want to do and even help make those things happen.

So as hard as it is to do this move, I am also Brett’s biggest supporter and I’m excited for this new opportunity he gets to take. We have no idea where this will lead us and hopefully the job turns out to be everything he wants. I am so proud of him and he works so hard (I know this first hand – we worked together for 5 years!).

We will be moving with a toddler and newborn (send wine). It will be crazy, exhausting, exciting, scary, frustrating, and fun. But we get to do it together as a family and make some new memories on this adventure. And hey, there are worse places we could move to than a fun city like Charleston and 5 miles away from the beach!

So feel free to join along as I post more about a new city, new adventures, new places to run and workout, and just navigating this whole moving process. We can’t wait to see what Charleston has to offer!

I want to encourage you to follow along in my health journey through what I learn and experience. I hope there is something you can take away from Fit Busy Female that inspires you to start taking control of your health and feeling better every day.
