It is official, we are moving to Houston! I am going to be working with the Vanderbloemen Search Group as a “Candidate Development and Research Associate,” which I think is a pretty fancy title. We’ve been considering a move south for a while and this opportunity came at just the right time.
We haven’t picked an area to live in yet, mostly because there are 3 MAJOR factors at play that will affect that decision. 1) proximity to the office which is in Rice Village. 2) Proximity to Friends and Family - Which are everywhere. 3) Good Schools because our sweet Sam is almost starting!
With all that said, we will be boxing up all our stuff and moving south in 3 weeks. We may spend a couple weeks at my parents’ house in Katy as we find a place. But this is all happening super fast. We are so pumped.
Garage Sale next weekend! Last day of work here is the 22nd! First day at VSG is Sept. 4th! Wow. Less than a month away. Here we go.
It’s an adventure.
