After reading today’s front-page article in the USA Today newspaper, brad and i have decided to move to holland, Michigan. ok…maybe we aren’t moving because of the article. But, WAY TO GO HOLLAND!!!! wow. Holland was ranked 2nd in the country by the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being index, based on interviews with more than 353,000 Americans in 2009. Individuals were asked to assess their jobs, finances, physical health, emotional state of mind and communities. VERY Impressive west michigan!

ok…so maybe the article had nothing to do with our decision to move back to Holland, but it definitely encourages us in our decision! Brad and i have been talking about moving back to Michigan for some time now. We are excited about living closer to family, water, friends, etc…. although we have truly loved our time in Colorado and will miss many many many friends, we are excited about the move.

we aren’t moving to Holland until May but we have already found a place to live. yes, we will be buying my childhood home from my parents! My parents bought this house when i was 5! (right, mom and dad? do you think i was 5?? or maybe 6?) i am thrilled that my kids will have the same type of memories and experiences that i had while growing up. that house is filled with amazingly good memories and i can’t wait to make more!
