Hold on to your hats folks...

Because we are MOVING!

To Jacksonville, Florida.

Oh yes, the Sunshine State.

And gang of mine, this is happening soon. By next Monday 5/24 the movers will be unloading our stuff in our new home. Our Florida house is 1/2 mile (and an easy straight walk) from the ocean. Our address is Atlantic Beach, FL. We can hear the waves crash from our front porch and smell the sea breezes. For weeks now, Kylie has been saying, "I don't live here anymore; I live at the beach!" And soon we shall.

Karen found an awesome new job and I found a very cool half-day preschool for the kiddo.

Big exciting changes.

We are flipping with excitement.

Do you know the carey & steph of "finding chaos"? they're moving to Florida too -- I wonder if you'll be close! Exciting!!! Can't wait for photos of the kiddo on the beach. Congrats to you all. Pack in a hurry! All you need is a swimsuit and a plastic bucket for Kylie.

Wow!!! I am very glad to hear that Karen found a job and hopefully it will be a lot better then the one in DC. Can't wait to see your pics of your new place and all the adventures you guys will go on. I am so jealous that you will be so close to the ocean.

Oh my gosh! We live in jax (just moved back from DC) and know zero other 2-mom families! I almost stalked a woman with her 2 kids in the grocery store the other day because she drove up in a car with rainbows, etc. Anyway so, want to be friends? Kylie's a bit older than Samantha (18 months) but she loves older kids. We are not weirdos, I promise! Leekarene at gmail dot com!
