We've kind of assumed it for a long time, but it's official. Today I put in my "4 weeks notice" at work. We'll be moving to Norfolk, VA around the end of the year and I will be starting the PA program at Eastern Virginia Medical School on January 3. Hoorah!

Decisions, decisions.... you know, the big ones? I'm tired of them! The last few months have been SO HARD! But now we know. It's hard for Burke to quit his job but he's been applying for lots of finance jobs in the area and we've been making contacts as best we can (without actually knowing anyone there!). I got accepted to Rosalind Franklin but we didn't feel like it was the right thing to do. I got a rejection letter from AT Still in AZ, and that was a little disappointing I guess, but alright. I still don't know for sure from Wake Forest, but I talked to the program director last night and she basically said "Look, I just don't think we're going to have a spot for you, but we won't know for sure until January or February." SO here we are.

Burke is amazing, really. None of this is easy for either of us, especially him, but he is so supportive, and always has been. We really are trying to do what we feel is the right thing for us at this time. We are so excited for this next adventure! Nervous, definitely, but excited! I am so grateful for my husband, my better half. I'm also grateful for the knowledge that our Heavenly Father answers prayers! He does!!! And I don't know what on earth we would do without that. He loves us. He loves each of his children, and He wants to bless us! Just ASK!


  1. That's really exciting news... we'll be in the same state again! Maybe we can meet at the temple or something. Good luck and have fun!

  2. Congratulations! Welcome to the East Coast!

  3. Yeah! We can meet at the temple or you can come see us when you go to the beach.... I know you will! And thanks Erica!
