“There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”
– Alan Cohen
I’m a southern California girl and there’s no way I could ever live anywhere else. In fact, Mumbles and I feel pretty restricted into northern OC territory where we’ve decided a la goldilocks and the three bears that the temperature is just right – hot enough to be warm, breezy enough to open up the windows and eat outside, and not so cold at night like it gets at the beach. Plus, our family and friends are here and close by and we like to live where we play. Play and living aside, there’s also work to consider and all the hard work Mumbles and his business partners have put in these past few years are really showing in the strength of their company, a growing employee workforce and more clients and work to do. All of this which brings us to Virginia.
Virginia is a big, important state for the company, Quest (very fitting, yes?), and so we’ll be heading there for a few months to set up shop on the easy coast. (!) I put in my notice at work (!) and we’ll be leaving soon. (!) Real soon. But to all my SoCal friends, not to fret! We’ll be back every few weeks as this 2012 seems to be the Year of the Wedding and plus, BFOTBM’s little baby Harper is set to make her arrival here sometime late next month (shower details and photos to come soon…promise!) and I just can’t wait to snuggle with her when she graces us with her presence. It’s an exciting time for us and what an adventure it will be. I’m sad to be leaving the work that I’m doing–because I’m not sure if it’s the same for you but I feel my identity is quite entwined with the work that I do–but I’m eager to experience all that awaits and share it with you here on the blog. Thanks, as always, for reading and for your support and encouragement.
Cheers to new adventures!

This is exciting! I’m so happy for the both of you and now is the time to do these things! The selfish part doesn’t want you to go but I’m beyond thrilled for this new chapter. Plus, this just means I have to visit Virginia…and I happen to love it there! All the best, love!
Thanks, Alison! I’ve never been to Virginia so it’ll be fun to explore and discover…I hear they have A LOT of wineries so I should be kept occupied for a good while. And, not to worry, we’ll be back for the holidays! P.S. I was just thinking about some zucchini bread and Dianne salad and chocolate cake. Maybe i’ll have to have some kits shipped out to me. 🙂
Wow! Congratulations Jenn. So excited for your adventure. Good thing you have this blog to keep up all up to date on life in Virginia! What part of Virginia will you be moving to?
Thank you! I will definitely be keeping up with the blog. Not too sure yet on where we’ll be living (eek!) but I’ve heard Virginia is just lovely so I’m secretly hoping we can try a few different spots over the next few months. I’ve started a bucket list of things I want to do while there, which I’ll be sharing soon. Let me know if you have any I should add to the list!
What?! I’m so excited for you guys! We have got to catch up soon!
Thanks, dear. So grateful to have family/friends like you and Ryan that are so supportive and encouraging. We’ll be back every few weeks so if we can work it out to get together that would be delightful! We have a two hour layover in SFO on Thursday morning… We’ll wave to you!
