Wednesday, March 30, 2011 what?

Thank you for your support with this dream of mine, friends. I've had so many sweet phone calls, texts, facebook messages and emails from friends and family. I've been interested in this specific MFA Modern Dance Program for years now, and I could not be more excited.

I jokingly tell my friends that I feel like I've just gotten engaged; but it's true. When my sweet husband asked me if I would be his forever and put the beautiful ring on my finger two years ago, I was so excited. My insides fluttered the next several weeks. But after a while, the seriousness of it settled in. I realized what was actually happening. I had a wedding to plan. I had lists to make, a dress to find, a date to pick, an apartment to find... the list went on and on.

This situation now, is a little less intense. At least I don't have to buy an expensive white fluffy outfit (unless I want to...). But I do have to make some big changes. The other day my boss put in an ad for a replacement for me and a little part of my heart frowned. This job has been one of the biggest blessings since we've lived in Boise. I found it on a whim, and was hired over 20 other qualified applicants. I've never had such great employers, and I love the massage therapists I work with. I feel pretty confident that I won't find a job as good in salt lake (if I even have time for a job), so I'll just have to really appreciate the next few weeks of work.

Finding an apartment has been such a struggle! I feel like I'll either just have to wait until the last minute or pay out the wazoo for a complex. Anyone who has any tips on places to live (the closer the the University of Utah stadium, the better) in Salt Lake, I would so greatly appreciate any suggestions. I'm still so giddy about my acceptance letter; I don't think it's set in that I have to move. Boise has been so good to us, and I've just figured out how to get around without getting lost.

Salt Lake is huge and scares me. But I have friends and family who live there, and I'm determined to be optimistic. This is such an exciting time for me, and I want to just drink it all up. Again- any suggestions having anything to do with moving, salt lake, or moving to salt lake would be happily happily received.

Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. Congratulations! That is so exciting! What a wonderful change you are about to experience! Soak it all up!

  2. I'll keep my eyes + ears out for places...we had to do further south for it to be affordable. There is a shuttle that runs up to UofU from here. Also PS - moving expenses can be deducted on your taxes so keep ALL your receipts from the boxes, moving van, etc C:

  3. Salt Lake is going to love you. And I'm pretty sure you'll be a fan of it eventually. :) Joseph and I are looking for housing around there as well right now. If we see anything you might like, I'll let you know!
