UPDATE: The Big Move

*cues 2001 Space Odyssey theme (also known as Sprach Zarathustra, op. 30 by Richard Strauss)*

First of all, if you haven't clicked on the above link, you should do so. Now.

Second. WE'RE MOVING IN A MONTH! *looks at calendar* *sweats*

Some of you might recall us saying we weren't leaving for the dry, cactus-strewn lands of Arizona until August. (I'm fully aware of the insanity of moving to a desert in August, thank you.)


I got an awesome job. And it starts June 20th.

Aside of the time crunch, we believe it has worked out for the best. This way, Ben and I aren't embarking on "new roles" at the same time. Ben graduates end of May with a Magna Cum Laude in Biological Sciences (SO proud of him!...can't believe how fast it's gone by), we pack up our POD, and drive to our apartment first week in June. He starts Dental School end of August.

We'll be living in Glendale, AZ - 15 minutes northwest of Phoenix - and already have our new address, so if you'd like it, let us know! We'll also have a guest bedroom/bath and LOVE visitors. Seriously. The refrigerator will be stocked and even if you only want to sleep there, we're fine with that, too! Did I mention how much we love visitors? We also understand if you'd like to restrict your visitation rights to the winter months. Neither of us blames you.

Until then, let the chaos begin! And please forgive us for any delay in responses. I assure you, it's only temporary.

*Did you know that Strauss's Sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30, written in 1896, was inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophical treatise of the same name


  1. What a beautiful photo of Arizona! I"m going to miss you so so much. However, it's a new adventure for the both of you which will be exciting. Don't worry, your mother will come visit the both of you quite often :)

  2. Wow, how exciting for you! I bet it's going to be chaotic for a while but then you'll be settled in and happy as clams:) Hmmm. . . I've always wanted to visit Arizona!

  3. How exciting that you've got a job already! Sounds like you have a wonderful place to move into.

  4. Thanks!...and Lindsay, we really DO love visitors! How far are you from AZ?

  5. All I can think is HOT HOT HOT!! I'd be such a horrible visitor. I'd sleep on the kitchen floor with the freezer door open.

  6. Ha! That's funny...and a little sad because it's so true :(

  7. Oh how exciting!I love moving... it just feels so refreshing. I had a friend in Tucson once, many years ago and you're right, it's blistering hot in the summer. Congrats on the job!
    And thanks for the invite. We may just take you up on that one day. That is, if you can stand a 6 and 4 year old. ;)

  8. Ooo Tucson is nice! I would be delighted if you took me up on the invite! Even though we don't have kids, we still love them. Heck, if yours are well behaved enough for you to take to Europe, I'm sure they're just perfect for us in AZ. :D

  9. Yay, congrats Barbara! That's so awesome! Is that the one you were going to interview for a little while ago?

    If I ever come to the US, I'll be sure to drop in and say hi ;). And you should do the same if you ever come to Aus!

  10. Thanks, Sari!! Oh you KNOW we will...I'd LOVE to go to Australia! Maybe once Ben is done with school?? Get the bed ready! :)


Thanks for stopping by! Please, leave a message...
