We’ve decided to say ciao to the East Coast and return to our roots in Seattle. It’s a big decision, but one we’ve planned to do when the timing was right. We had hoped to return last June, but Ryan was offered the job at ESPN and things fell into place to stay. I’ve been worried since then that our decision to stay would be a permanent choice and I would be raising babies far away from all family and in a state that is less than safe. I can’t say too much, but ESPN is not a good place to work. Plus, Ryan has decided that TV is not for him. I love my job, but neither of us have health benefits and we’re on year three without them. I’m incredibly nervous about up and leaving a perfectly stable lifestyle (and I feel absurd leaving two jobs to umm nada), but here we are. I’ve got just a few weeks to pack up our stuff and tie up loose ends. I’ll keep you posted!
