Huge News: We’re Moving to New York!

Fowler Family_2Yep, you read that right! Robert, Miles, and I {and Remy and Pippa} are packing up our stuff and heading East. And it’s happening soon–we’ll be on our way by the end of August. We can hardly believe it.

They say that having a baby changes everything, but this is one change none of us expected. Within weeks of bringing Miles home, the desire to be closer to my family grew and grew. Fortunately, Robert was up for the adventure and before we knew it the wheels were in motion. His transfer to his company’s New York City office has been seamless so far, the sale of our home is moving forward quickly, and we already found an adorable house to rent. We’ll be living in Westchester, just north of New York City. Robert’s already picked out his brand-new lawnmower : )

At times, this move feels absolutely crazy. We love our life here. We have such incredible friends. We love Chicago, our neighborhood, and our townhouse. I think we can both agree that leaving is going to be one of the more difficult things we’ve ever done.

But there’s just nothing like family and we’re excited to be near them. Miles is so lucky that he’ll get to grow up around them, experience New York City, and we’ll get to spend much more time at my family’s house in Vermont {my favorite place on the planet} than we’re able to now.

So here we go! If you have any advice on packing and moving with a baby while working full-time, we’re all ears. And if you live in New York and want to get together please let us know, we’d love to hang out!

Chicago, we love you and all of our favorite people here. We’ll be back to visit!
