She Moved to Georgia

Hopefully Lauren @ SheMovedtoTexas won’t be too upset that I borrowed her blog name but I thought it was the perfect title to announce my second big newsย which is that we’re moving to Georgia!


The boy was offered a job that really was too good to pass up and we made the decision a week or so before Christmas. This is going to be a huge change for all of us though I admit that I’m excited to experience Area III.

Some of the cool things about moving to Area III:
– One Day Recognized Events!!!
– Eventing all year around (though I realize most people break in the summer because it’s so hot)
– Being a lot closer to big destination events that I never would have had the chance to go to
– Lots of big time clinicians during the winter months

Things I am sad to leave:
– JLE and our wonderful team up here
– Going to Rebecca Farms is out of the picture
– Dandy Longlegs

I think this is a really good move for our little family. While we do love it here in the Pacific Northwest (and we love JLE), going to Georgia gets both of us closer to our families. It’s also a really great job opportunity for Eric. I’m a little nervous about having to find a new job myself but hopefully I’ll have an easier time of it then I did moving to Nevada (and then to Seattle)! And I’m hoping I can find a larger company to work for.

There are going to be a lot of new challenges coming up for me but I’m excited to meet them head on. And I can’t wait to get this move out of the way so I can start looking for my new partner. The horse variety of course!

  1. Wow. That’s big news! It was fun to have you in the northwest but I’m sure Georgia will be great. I wondered why you were saying you’d miss Dandy. Make sense now!

    1. Haha, yeah you probably all thought I was being silly but now he’ll be completely across the country. ๐Ÿ™ Still, I know he’s in good hands.

  2. Welcome to Georgia (early)! The eventing scene around here really is wonderful and I love the land for horsekeeping in general. And the employment scene is pretty great, too, if you’re worried about finding a new job, or at least it is in/around Atlanta. Good luck!

    1. That is so good to hear! I’m so worried about having to find a new trainer, a new barn and a new horse all at the same time! Any recommendations (or people to stay away from) is always appreciated.

        1. Well, right now we’re going to be in the NW corner but the boy works directly down town so we could be anywhere around the city depending on where I find a job and a new trainer.
