Move (mostly) complete!

Hear ye, hear ye.  Or, perhaps since we now live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan it should be, “Ya Der Hey, Ya Der Hey!” Really, I write that with nothing but love for the stereotypical “yooper” accent.

Well, we made the leap in our decision (read more here if you missed it), and now we are officially moved from Wrightstown, WI to the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan. As with any move, there were a lot of details.  But I’ll spare you.  Here are the amazing highlights:

We had a going away party.  Friends and family showed up.  We ate good food, had good stories, and made new memories.  It was a great send-off.

I finished my last day at work (after almost 13 years) and was surprised with an AMAZING 30-minute “The Office” themed going away video.  What an thoughtful project completed by co-workers.  I was feeling the love, big time – still am.  Thank goodness for technology to keep in touch.  Final day selfie stick photo below.

I had a great final lunch with Joe and Danica, the owners of Prophit Marketing. They have provided me an amazing experience and wonderful work family over the past 12+ years.

Flora finished off her almost 3 year run with Conquer Martial Arts by being part of the Little Chute Cheesefest Parade (yes, this is a festival…..about cheese). She’s excited to start her new karate school here in the Copper Country.

Our home was sold! Insert HUGE sigh of relief. We hope this home and neighborhood is everything to the new couple moving in that it has been to us. We will miss that amazing Fox River view and access, but we’ve moved on to something better suited for us 🙂 If you need a realtor in the Green Bay or Fox Valley area, call the guy below (Mike Pritzl).  He was so diligent, honest, and organized.  Thank you Mike!

Home Sold

We packed and packed and packed and…..

Ugh.

But it got done, and on Friday, 6/9/17, off we went!

About 5 hours later we arrived and promptly unpacked.

We are still finishing up some odds and ends of unpacking, so future post to be made on how our yurt looks inside as our home and not a construction zone 🙂

It hasn’t been even a week yet, but I can say, it feels right. Today, Flora said “I’m so glad we moved here.” Ditto my love.  Ditto.
