“Where you go I’ll go, and where you stay I’ll stay”
Want to know something funny? At the beginning of this year, Brent and I prayed that 2016 would be a year of living fearlessly. A year of living boldly. A year of living outside of our comfort zone. We chose ‘Fearless’ as our 2016 word, and now, secretly, I’m laughing (and quite bittersweet) about that.
Little did we know, that sometimes, prayers take form into wild adventures that you would never have dreamed of.
About a month ago, Brent got an email from his old boss at the radio station here in Minneapolis. He had moved to Seattle about a year ago, and had a position open to executive produce the top hits morning show. He asked Brent, ‘Ever think about coming out of retirement?’
At first, we laughed. Moving to Seattle? That seems crazy. We just bought a house. We just started ‘settling down.’ We got a dog. A backyard. A fence.
But something tugged at us to ask more questions. After all, this is Brent’s dream job.
After about a month of chatting with his (now again) boss, as well as the co-hosts of the show he will be producing…it was official. We were moving to Seattle!
It’s definitely bittersweet, as we were never actively looking for a job like this for Brent…but when opportunities like this land on your lap, it’s pretty hard to pass up. Plus, we’ve only heard amazing things about Seattle. Insert: beaches, mountains, warmer weather, Starbucks…
When Brent and I got married, we knew that our lives were about to become one extreme or the other: super boring, or super adventurous. Clearly, in the past year, it’s been the later…and we can’t complain!
Since telling our close family and friends, we’ve had a lot of the same questions (makes sense! This is super crazy!), so hopefully we can answer most here:
Of course, thanks for all your support and love as we are adventuring into this well, nutty time!
If you love Seattle, we would love to know the coolest places to visit, eat, drink, eat, tour, eat, and…did I mention eat? Just comment below!
