So as many of you may have noticed from our Halloween theme, Matt and I have an announcement! Since we visited New Zealand a year ago, I’ve told everyone I want to move there and since we bought this house in Amarillo, Matt’s told everyone he’s selling it and moving haha. Well it’s time that we do just that - we are selling this wonderful, amazing, horrible, nightmare house of ours and heading to Middle Earth. Several years of blood, sweat, and tears from our family and us have gone into making this an amazing home, but it’s time for us to go on an adventure. Our parents are of course going to miss us but are mostly just happy to support our dreams and visit😉 (and after MUCH consideration, even Bethany is halfway on board...sometimes.) We don’t know all of the details, but here’s what pretty much everyone asks:
1. We do not have jobs yet, a place to stay, cars, or furniture. We have lots of leads and ideas though - trust us we are thinking about all of these things and trying to be as responsible as you can when just dropping everything and moving. No one worries about us starving and being homeless as much as we do hahahahaha. Seriously.
2. We are staying here through February at least and maybe more if the house stays on the market. So we have a couple of months to plan and settle things here in the states.
3. Wellington is our ideal city, but that could change.
4. Most importantly, we are going to miss all of our family and friends so much. We want to make the most of our time here with you all, and we’ll be back in just a short year! Start saving today and come visit!
This is probably one of the scariest and most exciting things we’ve ever set our minds to. I’ll be sharing more on our journey as we know more!
