The stars have aligned for my husband and I to embark on our next journey, and it's taking us to North Carolina!
Tommie was recently offered a job at a non-profit based in Durham, NC. I really think the change will be good for us and will help us move on to the more "grown-up" stages of our lives. Let's be honest, with the household income of a writer and an organizer, we really should be in a more affordable place.
The truth is, Tommie and I have felt a pull to North Carolina since our first road trip together six years ago. It was the first stop on our drive from Massachusetts to California. Since then, we have been back to visit on several occasions. My Mom blames Dawson's Creek, which is partly true. I fantasized about rowing down a moonlit creek where they filmed the show until I learned there were gators down there. Anyway, we won't be by the creeks in Durham, but there is still a lot to like about the area. It's warm, it's cheaper, it's up-and-coming, and it's an interesting place to explore.
Before Tommie landed his interview, we started a Vision Board on Pinterest with North Carolina in mind. Now, a couple months later, we are getting excited to head down there and start pinning in real life.
