It’s officially official! James, Jasper, and I are moving to Kansas City! A while back, James and I decided we wanted to really make a go of trying to relocate. We’ve lived in Western Kansas for our entire lives, and always have enjoyed visiting KC on long weekends, and we actually rang in the new year 2014 in KC. We started applying for jobs and looking for places to rent a few months go. We found an apartment we loved, in a location we loved, and submitted an application!
We were accepted at the apartment complex in Leawood around the same time that James was offered a position with a really great company in Overland Park. So begins the packing! We have a LOT of stuff in our tiny apartment. Where on earth did it all come from? Boxes and boxes later, we are nearly finished packing, only a few more boxes to go.
We will make our big move at the end of June, and will officially be the Leawood Gerstners. 🙂 Jasper has enjoyed playing in the empty boxes, and with the packing materials. I think the move will be good for him, he’ll have more room to run around, more windows to look out, and even a balcony to lay on.
We have made several trips back and forth to KC for job interviews and apartment viewings. The drive has gotten prettier and prettier as the spring and summer rains have continued. The move will be a huge change for us, we have lived in the same town for our entire lives, and have both our families within a 10 minute drive. I am very close with my parents, my mom especially… we run together nearly every day. It will definitely be an adjustment, but I think it will strengthen our relationship, and I am sure we will still talk multiple times a day.
2014 is proving to be quite the life-changing year, we know this will be a great change, I just hope it all goes smoothly! Thank you all for your love and support along the way!
The Gerstners 🙂
