T-4 Days: Big Changes Are Coming!

Hi everyone!
Sorry about the unexpected blogging hiatus. I went to South Carolina for 5 days 2 weeks ago and it was a crazy 5 days! I flew that Wednesday to Charleston for a job interview, then drove a rental car to Greenville at the crack of dawn the next day for another job interview Thursday, then Zach met me in Greenville Thursday night because we both had another interview Friday! Then Friday afternoon we drove back to Charleston to spend the rest of the weekend with Caitlin and Dan and came back to Mississippi on Sunday. 
It was an insane few days!

I have accepted a job in Spartanburg and we are moving to the area this Saturday! We aren't living in Spartanburg but in a town in between Spartanburg and Greenville, in case Zach winds up working in Greenville.
We loved the area when we visited and we are really looking forward to arriving and getting settled. Bear with me as this will be another crazy few weeks, but I promise to update y'all as best I can!
We visited downtown Greenville when we were there and loved it!
It was such a nice city!

We visited Falls Park while waiting to eat dinner at Smoke on the Water!

Smoke on the Water was great to Zoe. We sat out on the patio and they brought her a huge dog bowl of water and she just laid under the table and people watched. She's such a sweet, well-behaved dog! 

We like how central Greenville is to a lot of people we love and care about! Caitlin and Dan are only 2.5 hours away in Charleston, Mary Catherine and Kevin are only a couple hours north in NC, Jimmy is less than three hours away in Knoxville, and Zach's cousin Shawn is only about 3.5 hours away in Kentucky. It will make road-tripping much easier!

Zach is moving with me this weekend and will spend July writing his thesis, but will return to MS for a few days in August to finish up any missing samples he has left to run in the lab. We will both come back for a long weekend in October for his defense and some MSU football ;)

This will be quite an adventure but we're excited!
Do any of y'all live near Greenville/Spartanburg? Charlotte is close too!

    I don't get down that way much anymore because my parents moved to NC from Atlanta.
