The time has come for us to leave California so my husband can continue pursuing his education and find more job opportunities in his industry. We will be moving to Utah, which is both terrifying and...well, mostly terrifying. All our close family members live in the same town as us, so to say that I'm… Continue reading Why I’m So Excited to Downsize
