State Bloggers and TPT Love

So far, there are 16 NC bloggers joining the party :)

Right before graduation, I had a phone interview with a school in the area. We then decided to visit  the school and stay with my in-laws who live in Chapel Hill. 
One sunny, hot, humid afternoon in June of 2004,  I met the second grade team, administration and reading specialist. Two hours later, I received my first job offer. I am pretty sure I screamed after I hung up the phone. I wanted second grade badly enough to move miles away. 

Northern Kentucky had been our home for 11 years before that. We had a beautiful older home, which had been remodeled from top to bottom by my hubby. It was a beauty at the end. Sold it in 3 days!!! 
We miss our friends, the snow (we LOVE snow), and our beautiful home. 
I have to be honest, sometimes we regret the move. Sometimes we are not sure if this is home. But we have loved the weather, the closeness to the beach (2 hours away), the gorgeous mountains and the amazing friends we have made here.  Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends, right?
