Where did time go??

I can not believe that it has been almost a year and a half since I last posted to this blog. I truly don't have an excuse, just reasons that I let get in the way. Since I last posted, my husband and I have moved twice, he started a new job, I gave birth to our wonderful baby boy Xander, and we are now about to embark on one of our craziest adventures yet.

We've both lived in Florida for most of our lives (both were born in New Jersey), but my husband has always wanted to live in Seattle, Washington. Thanks to a fantastic job transfer, his dream has now become a reality and will soon be one for myself and our son. James has been in Seattle since the beginning of December and Xander and I will be joining him in just a couple of weeks. Why the delay? Moving cross-country is ridiculously expensive!

We finally found a great house in Seattle and our things just left on a moving truck yesterday to make the 3800 mile trip. Once everything arrives then Xander and I will be flying out to our new home!

So yes, life has been hectic, crazy, and exhausting. It's also been exciting. I'm not always happy about change, but I do love a good adventure and that's how I'm viewing this move. So the course of this blog will be changing. We'll stil be experiencing my adventures in frugality, just on a different coast! I hope you join me for the wild ride as I try to adjust to living and saving in the Pacific Northwest! Oh Florida sun...I already miss you.
