I officially quit my job 2 days ago, so we have decided that the timing is now right to announce our big news. Here is a clue...
We're all moving to London!
It's true! With the economy the way it is, we were very concerned about our future after Sean graduated. Sean was very proactive with his job applications and somehow got it in his mind to apply to some firms in London. Before we knew it, he was getting call backs from firms in London and San Francisco. He even flew out to the UK and had 5 interview. After being so uncertain about our future Sean was suddenly getting offers from 2 of the leading markets on opposite sides of the world. At times like this, we've learned to take it to the Lord. After praying and going to the temple we both received the same answer; it may not be the choice that makes the most sense but London is calling!
We are very excited at the opportunities that await us there. Sean will be working for Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, which is a "magic circle" firm. It is one of the most prestigious international business firms. He'll be doing finance deals for international corporations and banks like Goldman Sachs, Samsonite, and Aston Martin. He is super excited.
As for me and Parker and Bella, we are excited to hang out more with our Janes side of the family that I found when Sean and I were in London in 2009. We are also excited to travel and explore Europe. My one request has been that I will not shower, cook or go to the bathroom in a closet! (remember our flat last time - that gives me nightmares) We have already been checking out flats and I think we'll be able to find a place were we can all be comfortable and feel like home.
The master plan, for now, is that when Sean graduates, we will move in with his parents again for a few months while Sean studies and takes the New York Bar. We'll do some good traveling this summer and visit friends and family before we move across the pond. The big move will probably take place in October and then Sean starts work in November.
So there is our Big News for you! Stay posted for our adventures in London Part II :)
