How are you and how was your day, your week and everything?
I am hoping great so far.
So We moved! Yes, we moved from Florida to Kentucky. Some of you who know me, know that I used to live in Louisville, Ky and then moved a few years ago.
I must add, that I have lived in 3 different states in 3 years! Let that sink in for a bit! And no we are not a military family. I have a lot of love and a lot of respect 💪 for the military for their services to the countries they serve in.
I lived in Louisville for almost a decade, worked here, got married here, had my baby here. I have loved this city, I might add, it has loved me back- I call Louisville home and the friends I have here are (almost) family to me. My husband and I moved in 2017 from Louisville to Naperville, Illinois.
We lived here from March 2017- June of 2018. We decided to move to warm and sunny Florida since we visited FL every year since 2015.
This is where my husband and I have been coming to for a bit. I loved it (still do)- the palm trees, the warmth is the closest thing to being in Nigeria lol. The Jamaican food that I had brought back food memories about the food I ate in my grandmother’s house in Nigeria. My colleagues at work made the best coffee brew yet- super strong Cuban coffee, a few sips and you are good to go. I decided right there and then, some of the best home-brewed coffees should include Instant coffee- ask me the brand of coffee if you want to try it.
Back to Louisville
You might ask why did you choose to move? I will tell you in one word- FAMILY.
We moved to be with family and close enough to visit them and not spend days (when you travel with a toddler) on the road.
God is a faithful God, and He blessed my husband and me with jobs in less than a month of applying. We got hired and we made the decision to come back to Louisville, Ky. I can unashamedly tell you that we MISSED being in Louisville.
It was not easy, I made the short video to show you a glimpse of the day of travel. We - No- my husband packed the UHaul truck and I must add, one does not think they have much stuff until they have to move. We found items from our first move from Louisville. We got rid of old stuff and the stuff we could carry, we carried in the truck.
We stopped in Macon, Georgia and stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Macon I-475 and rested. The guy at the reception desk that night -Tommy- was very kind to weary road travelers like us. We slept, woke up, had breakfast and got on the road and drove the remainder of the 6 hours to Louisville. We arrived in the rain. I did not worry. It was GREAT to be back- after being on the road for about 13 hours. (This is not an affiliate link and I am not being paid to post this)
And by the way, we arrived on Sunday night and I began work on Monday!
That’s all for now- there is so much unpacking to do! You might see UHaul boxes in most of my pics on Instagram where I post often. You can reach me there and by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to keep up with what is going on, join me there.
For all my readers and listeners to the podcast, Thank you. You were with me in Florida and I say, thank you and hope you would keep reading and listening.
Hope you have a great weekend and I will see you in the next episode,
