FLORIDA


 Yup. That's where we'll be this summer.

Found out Tuesday night, and we'll be leaving a week from Monday!

Yup. Less than two weeks to figure out how we are going to relocate our family for four months. 

It's going to be fabulous, though! I can't wait. It will be very much out of my comfort zone, and I'm going to have to grow in ways I've never had to before! PAH!

We are looking for housing in and around Tampa. 


Let's just say that the 500/600 dollars spent per month on a two bedroom apartment in Provo suddenly doesn't look so steep! ;) But hey--the internship is paid, at least, so we'll be just fine.

We are so thankful for this last minute opportunity! We've been on pins and needles for so long with all this internship madness that the fact that we have one hasn't really sunk in. Let alone in FLORIDA!

Can't wait!

I still can't believe you guys are going to be leaving. We SO have to plan a trip out there...if school applications don't put us in debt of course. anywho, yae!!

yay! I grew up in Lakeland, so if you ever go between Tampa and Orlando, you'll pass right on through. So, is the internship in Tampa or Orlando? That would be quite a commute from Tampa to Orlando everyday...especially with all the tourists in the summer time!

And yeah, I hear ya about the real life apartment prices. When we moved to Dallas, I about fell outta my seat when I was looking at how much average, safe apartments cost. But, eh, such is life and it's cheaper than a house payment!

Anyway, good luck!! And I highly recommend Anna Maria Island/Long Boat Key (West coast) for some fantabulous beaches. Looking forward to some good pictures!

Thanks so much for all the insider advice, Katie! The company operates out of a couple cities, and the boss told Kirby to look for housing in Tampa. :) So that's what we're doin! I cannot wait to live close to the beach! It's gonna be fabulous.

Oh, Mercedes, you are fabulous! I will definitely let you know! We are going to try and take as little as possible, so hopefully it won't be too huge--but I'm sure I'll find out how wrong I am once it all gets underway! PAH! :)
