A long overdue update

So there have been a few major changes for our little family over the last few weeks. I have waited this long to write about it because we wanted things to really be settled before we made a general annoucement.

Major Change No. 1: Dave's company just recently created some programs that allow employees to take a leave of absence and work on other projects. Dave decided he wanted to take advantage of this new opportunity and was able to hook up with a company called Zinch that works to improve the college admissions process. That change lead us to...

Major Change No. 2: Zinch is headquarted in Utah. Which means...yup, you guessed it, we're moving back to Utah. The timing of all this as been kind of crazy and has happened rather quickly. Before Lily was born, I had actually already booked a 3 week trip out to Utah for July. Then when all this Zinch stuff started coming together we realized that we would be moving at the end of July. So since I was already going to be out here we decided it would be easier if I just stayed.

Anyway, to try to make a long, complicated story short. We are all currently out here in Utah (although Dave still has to fly back to Dallas this weekend and pick up some stuff and our car) and excited for this new phase of our lives!
