A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we would be moving. At the time I didn't have a lot of details. Well, I have them now, and it's time for me to share them.
We're moving back to Ohio! Not exactly back to where we were before, but not super far either. We will be living in a suburb of Cleveland. It's pretty centrally located between our families (a little over an hour to Ed's, about 2 to mine) The super exciting part? We're renting a HOUSE! A whole house! After sharing walls and ceilings/floors with other people for over 10 years, we get an entire space to ourselves. We're pretty stoked.
As for Chicago, I'm really glad we gave it a shot. Living in a REAL city has always been on my life list. It's a great place to live. A lot of people love it here. I found that although I can deal with city life, I'm more of a rural/suburbs kind of gal.
A funny thing - I've had family and acquaintances ask, "What suburb of Chicago do you live in?" I tend to get a little bristly at that question! Our apartment is 4 miles from Michigan Ave. I can see all of the giant landmark buildings when I'm out walking Dottie. It is assumed that because we don't live downtown (and, really, I don't know a single person who does), that we don't live IN Chicago. We do! I promise! Give us credit, we really did live in an actual city for (almost) a year!
