In October my husband and I came out to Idaho to visit our niece who was just born in August. We couldn't wait till Christmas and since my husband works from home we thought lets go. My brother and his wife live in Rexburg while my brother finishes school at BYU-Idaho.
Well while visiting there Bryan and I decided to check out homes there and we couldn't believe how affordable they were. I mean like super cheap compared to California and even Oregon. We had been living back in CA for almost 6 months because we haven't figured out where our next spot was. However, while in Idaho everything just felt right. And my gosh did it ever when we put an offer in on a house and they accepted it immediately. We had a less than 30 day escrow and we were moving to Idaho Falls before Thanksgiving. More like November 3rd!
Bryan (my husband) and I have always lived our life with the motto Faith over Fear! That has been us from the beginning, maybe more me at first but now. So here we are, alone ( I mean I have my brother and sister-in-law until like June and a childhood friend). Life here is a lot slower than what we are used too but we LOVE it. It reminds us what is important and what we need to focus on.
