Movin' home to Utah!

So not everyone knows it, but Ben and I were contemplating staying in TN depending on if I got a job in the NICU here. It seems that I am graduating from nursing school at the worst time in the world! The nursing jobs in Utah are few and far between. Is anyone else REALLY sick of this economy? We had decided that if I got a job offer here we would stay, but the position has been filled by some Tennessean so we are comin' home! I will leave to come back to Salt Lake at the end of May and should be back in the valley by May 25th. I must say, it is going to be VERY hard to leave TN. Even though it wasn't my favorite place in the world at first, I have grown to love it very much. More than the actual place, the people here are wonderful. I have made some of the best friends I've ever had in just the short two years I've been here. We are really going to miss our ward and our primary class. I'm going to miss my friends from school. But we are very excited to move home and see what is in store for us in Salt Lake! I have missed everyone and am excited to see everyone! Here are some pictures of the things we're going to miss.....

This is my friend Susanna's little boy, Levi. He was born in October and I got to watch!
This is a hike we took a few weekends ago. Just a classic TN structure. Love it!
My best friend at school. Her name is Susanna and she is the best person I've ever met! That's her little girl, Emma.
The beautiful falls on the hike that we took. 
My darling friends from church at at party we had.

Allie that is so sad but at the same time I would feel the same way on moving back home. Home is simply where your heart is.

Allie, I can completely relate! We too are thinking of moving back home but the ecomony is so scary! We also have a house in MO so we don't want to sell at the worst time which is now! Good luck on your move and hopefully we will be back soon and we will all be living happily in SLC!
