Sticking Around

Brett accepted a job offer from Overstock.com in Salt Lake! He starts this coming Monday. Amongst a few other opportunities this seemed to be the best fit for Brett and our family. He'll be a buyer's assistant, helping acquire new product for Overstock's website.

Brett has been networking, applying, and interviewing for jobs like crazy over the last couple of months. His hard work and patience has paid of and I'm so happy for him.

So I guess Utah will be our home for a while longer! I'm happy to stay in Utah (for a while I thought I was ready to leave). Our little family is happy and comfortable here. We'll continue to live in Lehi until our current contract is up, and maybe then we'll think about moving. The last thing I want to do right now is move again!

I'm grateful that we aren't living in the unknown anymore and I'm so grateful Brett has been able to find a good job! Congrats to him, I hope he loves it!!

The unknown stinks. A lot of people are Utah haters when really it's a great place. When we left I was ready to go. Not because I hated it but I felt like we were ready for our next phase. I am happy for you. At least you will be close to some family which will be great with Owen.

That's amazing! Could you have Brett talk to them about a new catch phrase. "All about the O" is kinda lame. Just saying...
