Next Stop: Orlando!

Next Stop: Orlando!

Hello Mickey! Hello Disney! Hello highway traffic from hell?

So my husband accepted a job offer in Orlando, Florida. It’s not too far from where we are currently. I couldn’t be more proud and happy for my husband! He did it! We did it! Graduation isn’t here yet, but he managed to lock in a job offer a few months ago (what a relief!).

We truly believed that after law school we would be making our way back to New York City. Oh life. Isn’t she funny?

So the fun part about blogging again, and with moving is how I will be able to document this next chapter of my life. I can’t wait to share with you all the not-so-fun parts of planning a big move (again) and exploring this new city we will be living in for the next couple of years (I say, couple because you just never know where the wind will blow us, right?).

Moving to a new city for a job is not only unnerving, but can be quite an overwhelming and complicated process. Making the decision to move to a new city depends on many factors, as you’re not just considering one big change, but many.

The transition, no doubt, isn’t going to happen overnight. But optimism, along with some great planning, are what’s really going to help me make this move easier for us.

Starting from scratch in a new city means we are going to have to do some research of the areas we’d mostly likely like to live, hang, and eat. I have found that Floridians like to use TripAdvisor more compared to New Yorkers who use Yelp. Luckily, my best friend and some extended family members live in this city, so I am sure they will give us some good recommendations.

I am also fortunate to be moving only one hour away from my mom and brothers. They’re already scheduling visits to Orlando. I welcome all the moral support we can get.

Have you ever relocated for a job? What steps did you take in making the change? Share your tips in the comments!
