A Bitter-Sweet Change

Last month, James got accepted into a few top MBA schools-Carnegie Mellon, University of Virginia, and UCLA. He was also on the MIT wait-list for a while, which makes me proud! After a lot of study, prayers, and back-and-forths, we decided on UCLA. James starts school mid-September. So, LA here we come! Lucky me, I always get to pack up our homes just weeks after having a baby. I guess it is better than packing up while 9 months pregnant.

We are excited to live by James' sister Lisa, her husband Dave, and our soon to be born niece :) We have some good friends that live down there should be fun. We will definitely be sad to leave our wonderful friends and family here. I really don't know what we are going to do without our sisters and brothers-in-law living nearby. It makes me sad to think of that. It is weird to leave Utah when it has been home for the last 9+ years.

In preparation, our house went up on the market yesterday. It sure has come a long way in the (almost) 3 years we have lived here...

Here it is when we bought it:

And here it is now (James' sweet cousin Tara took these pictures and is helping us sell our house):

Don't worry...It says "Linc" above their bookshelf :)

Lets cross our fingers someone else will love our first home as much as we have!

Looks great, and congrats to James! That's quite the feat. You guys will hopefully find just as much to love there in L.A.!
