As I had mentioned a few posts ago my family and I are moving to Alaska at the end of May.It's been stressful planning as it is a VERY expensive move and the cost of living up there is really high.I'm still planning on moving up there but the gods work in mysterious ways sometimes.Though the events are unfortunate in the long run this will be most beneficial to my family.My husband is going to go ahead and move to Alaska at the end of May but due to an emergency in my family I will be taking the kids to California for 6 months.Could end up being shorter,perhaps a tad longer but right now that is the plan.
Watching a family members health decline is heart breaking but its very important to be there for them if you can.I've missed being away from my family and this will give my mother and mother in law a chance to be near their grand-babies for awhile.It will also give my husband a chance to find work easier and a place when he just has himself to worry about and plenty of time to get established up there before the kids,dog and I come up.
So life throws a wrench in your plans sometimes but like I said it really is for the best.Plus I'm a big believer in absence makes the heart grow fonder so it will give me a chance to miss my hubby like crazy again like I haven't since we first started dating and weren't married and together 24/7...you know familiarity breeds contempt,haha!But no really it will be strange being away from him and I'll miss him like crazy but we're playing the hand life dealt us.
I will still be running my Etsy shop and hoping I can still find many goodies in California.Hoping my old haunts are still around and that the mid-west has spoiled me too much.I'll be leaving at the end of May so I'll probably have my shop closed for about 2 weeks which will be very odd for me but I'm hoping to sell as much as possible BEFORE I leave so fingers crossed the sales fairy is good to me so I won't have to lug it across the country.Needless to say I'm quite a flutter with all this craziness going on and its got me California dreaming.Thought I'd share some California themed goodies I've seen on Etsy with you all.
