Times, they are a changin'.

In May the Sniders are a-moving to Seattle. Back to the northwest from whence we came.

I'm anxious to meet my new city. To find new favorite restaurants and parks. To pick out a new home. I'm reminded of when I married Silas and moved to Pittsburgh. I'd never been to Pittsburgh before the day we moved into our apartment in Bloomfield. It was a great adventure and I know this move will be too.

But leaving Pittsburgh is going to be hard. I know that the closer we get to moving the more I'm going to cry about it. Not because I don't want to move. I do. Seattle is closer to our families, closer to our hearts, closer to where we want to be in life. But I love Pittsburgh. This is where Silas and I spent our newlywed days, this is where our church is, our friends.  This is where we've built our life. The very idea of finding a new house, new church, new friends, new school, new midwife, it all just seems overwhelming.

So that's that, I guess. Hopefully this will be the last of the big announcements for awhile. I don't know if I can handle any more life changes at once!

  3. Seattle!! I love Seattle (originally from Salem...most of my Oregon friends have relocated there) -- It is such a family-friendly place and good city to raise kids. I know it can be really sad to leave Pittsburgh, because it's a pretty awesome city too. But if one must leave Pittsburgh, Seattle is a lovely choice.

  4. It would be cool if you announced that you were having twins...but, that would be a big announcement too!

    I bet that Seattle will be a fun place to live.
