Our new home!

The past two weeks have been quite eventful for Brian and I. In a nutshell, we made a bid on a townhome here in Charlotte, and the next day Brian got an enticing offer to play baseball this summer in Taiwan. The team had to know his answer in 24 hours so in the midst of countering and recountering on the townhome we were trying to figure out if he should play over there.

Ultimately, we decided to go for it. I think Brian really just needs a change of scenery from a professional standpoint, and this was the perfect opportunity. He's been itching to take a trip somewhere cool before we start having kids too. It also was a wise decision financially because he'll be making much more than he would in the U.S. The only "downer" is that we have to be apart for about a month. Someone has to stay here and close on our house! Brian had to leave for Taiwan three days ago and will be over there for the next 4 weeks by himself. Then I'll get to fly over in mid-April and spend the rest of the summer with him.

I miss him terribly already, but at least I have this house stuff to keep me busy. We're supposed to close on March 31, so things have to move quickly. I'll be so excited when I get to re-open all of our wedding gifts that have been stored at my parents' house for the past 5 years! I don't have any pictures of the inside of our townhome yet, but here's a picture of the outside:
