Maiden Blog



Hello Bloggers and Blog readers!
We decided to join the blogging community, and bore everyone with the painful dullness that is our lives! Just kidding! Well, only sort of... today we actually have some fun and exciting news. We are moving out of New York City! It is very exciting, and we are looking forward to what will come next. This weekend Mark is leaving for Minneapolis and starts his new job on the 30th. I am staying in NY until May 21st or so and will be working until then. We've been in NYC for 3 years now, which is about how long we intended to stay, so it has worked out well... just very quickly. We have lots to do, but it will be fun to buy a car and find a new apartment (and eventually a house of our own!!). Minneapolis is a nice city, very liveable and friendly, and it really has so much to offer. We look forward to exploring it and the area around it; Mark will finally be able to put his fishing stuff back to use. The city has so many parks and outdoor things that there will be plenty to keep us busy this summer. I know everyone can't believe we would be excited to go somewhere so cold in the winter, but how much fun will Christmas be with snow? I don't mind the cold, and even with it, Minneapolis is a city of skywalks, so you never have to go outside while you are downtown! It will be an exciting time for us... bring on the cold! :o) And the Mall of Americ of course, it's no West Edmonton Mall, but we will take what we can get!

How fun that you have a blog! This is great, and somehow you actually peaked my interest... I seriously want to visit Minneapolis someday! Anyway, I'm a nerd, I know... I'm so excited for you both and can't wait to be updated on your fun adventures - although Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day will never be the same without the Smiths!

I'm sad that we just met and now your leaving, but I guess its okay because now I can spy on you through your blog. I don't think your crazy, I like the cold and would kill for a white Christmas.
