Moving to Virginia

For those of you who don't know, we're moving to Virginia in July. Bruce got a job with the NRO in Chantilly, which is kindof a big deal. He definitely had to be a super star to get this assignment. I am so proud of him for all his hard work at Hill. We will miss Utah but are excited for the new chapter in our lives. Our initial plans were to live close to the city. How many chances with the Air Force do you get to live in or near such an amazing city with so much to offer?! With dreams of going to museums and monuments on a weekly basis, we were looking into Alexandria or Arlington, which are not in the dead center of D.C., but pretty close. We would be close enough to use the metro, but traffic is terrible and Bruce would have a hefty commute to and from Chantilly. We have recently reconsidered this commute and have decided it will be too difficult on us. We would rarely get to see each other during the week and neither of us want that. We are used to living on base which is a 5 min drive to work. We get to see each other during lunch breaks and he gets home in the early afternoon. We LOVE it! Therefore, we are looking at places closer to his work, like Centreville, Reston and a few others. I think in the end we will be grateful of our decision. And we will only be a short drive away from D.C. I can't wait!
