and the winner is...BOSTON!






We are so excited to finally know where we are going to be next year. We'll be very sad to leave our family and friends but at the same time are anxious to get started with this new chapter of our lives. We know that this is where we are suppose to go, and feel completely at peace with our decision.
We won't be leaving until late summer but I've already browsed craigslist for apartments and saw a couple postings for move-ins for 9-1-09, so I'll have to keep my eye out. If any of you know the city please feel free to tell us where you think might be the best places to live. I'm not sure how I feel about the cold factor yet but at least I have an excuse to buy the cute coat I saw the other day!(you know me, always looking at the positive!)

In spite of my initial reaction, I am happy for you, I promise. I haven't been since high school for a choir competition, but I hear it's a great city! See you in the morning :)

It's going to be so much fun getting to know a new place and everything it has to offer.

But, is drew going to get an accent?

OK. So you have no idea who I am but I got saw this link on Katie and Andrew's blog. I am Katie's friend from high school but live in the Boston area now. Let me know if you have any questions. Oh and our little ones are not too far apart. My daughter was born August 15. My e-mail is JamieMieth@gmail.com.

Congrats again! It's gonna be exciting exploring a new place. I hear Boston is beautiful. Cheers to new memories!!!

Boston is beautiful! We have been there a few times - we are in the Boston Temple district. If we are still in CT by the time you move there (we may move to Holland in a month or two), then we'll have to get together.

We have some friends in Boston, so if you need help figuring out where to live, I can get you in touch with them. They have two boys - one just a few months older than Andrew.

Congrats again!

OMG!!! I can't believe it has been this long since I have talked to you that I am just finding this out!! How exciting for you guys and guess what? i will totally be visiting you there! My sister is just outside of Boston in North Andover and Im sure she has some suggestions on where to look for apts. In fact, I bet she would let you stay at her house if you guys want to go out there and look for housing before hand. She is 30 mins from teh city. Anyway, we need to talk!! Miss you so much!!
