Kinda Crunchy Kate is Moving to the Windy City!



I’ve been gone from this space for so long because my husband finally got a job! He’s been looking for a job for 18 months now and the Lord has finally answered our prayers and provided a job that actually has something to do with what he went to school for.  (He has a PhD in Systematic Theology, if you’re curious.) We found out a month ago that he got the job and have been packing like crazy people ever since. We leave in 7 hours to start a new chapter in our lives. So exciting, and terrifying, all at the same time!

This space will unfortunately continue to be pretty quiet until we find a place to live in Chicago, which will most likely be a couple of months, as I’ll have very infrequent access to the internet.

I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone in March! I’ve made lots of green and crunchy goals for the year and I’m looking forward to figuring out how to do those in Chicago.

    Congrats on your hubby’s job! As a neighbor (30 minutes outside) of The Windy City, I’d say you’re gonna have a fun time! There are so many great neighborhoods & fun things to do with kids! My husband & I just took our kids (4 year old son, 2 year old daughter) to The Field Museum (Science, artifacts, etc.) a couple weeks ago. Being from the ‘burbs, I also know of lots of activities out here & lots of “crunchy” places to shop & explore! lol Good luck with the move…and welcome! :)

    So happy for you! Hope and pray the drive is going well and that the kids are asleep. Miss you already since you won’t be online much. Think of me! ;)

    So excited for you to start this new phase of your lives in a new place. Praying your transition will go smoothly. Can’t wait to hear all about the new home/neighborhood when you get settled.
