Happy New Year! We've been a little behind in our blogging lately because we've been super busy. You might be wondering what we've been busy with... Well, it's our newest adventure- we're moving to Arkansas! Yes, the Lewandowskis are heading south!
When Tom's contracted writing job ended in December, we were hoping to find the perfect job opportunity here in Omaha. Everyone knows that times are tough and the economy isn't providing a lot of opportunities for job seekers. Our prayers were answered, and Tom received a job offer we couldn't pass up.
We'll be moving to the northwest corner of Arkansas in the Bentonville, Rogers, and Fayetteville area. Tom has already started working for Nelson Counseling and will be assisting my parents in their counseling business. He will also start graduate school to obtain his masters degree in Social Work.
We spent almost 2 weeks in early January down in Rogers, Arkansas. Tom worked and I child-reared. In the afternoons and evenings, we met with a realtor and visited homes. We did put an offer on a great house, and the offer was accepted! So, if all goes as planned, (it's a short sale, so we're keeping fingers crossed) we will be in our very own house by mid- February!
We took a 6 hour Sunday drive last weekend and spent some time enjoying the beauty of the Ozarks, right in our new backyard!
We are back in Omaha right now, tying up loose ends, packing our stuff (again), and loading up a POD. We'll be here through the next week, and then we're off to begin the next chapter of our lives. We'll post more soon about all the great things in Northwest Arkansas. I'm sure there's a lot of things people don't know about this undiscovered gem of a state!
