Amber and I are heading out for Kentucky tomorrow and we are a little sad. We are excited about all the fun stuff we get to do but we have really grown to love our place here in the city, not to mention some new friends that feel like they've been our friends for a loooong time, and a really great church. (Of course it doesn't help that the weather up here has been nothing short of paradisal lately.)
I think part of the sadness comes from the fact that we are just feeling like we are getting settled in. Things are familiar to us and that's always hard to leave.
Everyone always gets a little antsy when they talk about moving to NYC because they can't imagine living in such a big and busy place. But one of the many cool things about the city is that every 5 blocks or so is its own little neighborhood. Pretty much everything you need is within your five blocks and that's essentially how it is for every 5-10 blocks in Manhattan.
Don't get me wrong, Kentucky is beautiful and we get to do some really great music in the middle of the rolling appalachian hills, but this past year has been a bit of a rollercoaster and just about the time we are feeling settled in our new place, we are up and out again. And by golly, there is something to be said about feeling settled. I've moved around my whole life and so has Amber. We know that Kentucky is were we are supposed to be this summer and we'll be so durn busy that the time will fly by like a Subway... sub...way.. AWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
And so it goes in this business.
You can never say never with God, but we have pretty much decided that after this, we doubt we'll be doing something like moving out for 11 weeks again. I'm sure it will be a blast and we'll have lots to share, but after this summer, we're thinking we might want to plant a few roots down here in this big awesome town. (Knock on wood praise the Lord.)
The blog will probably go silent for a week or two but as soon as we can, we'll give you an update!
