Today I broke-up with my ObGyn...

...I love him. Have you noticed every girl thinks their ObGyn is the best?

My first ObGyn in Houston was an older man, Dr. T. Dr. T delivered one of my friends and she is 2 years older than me! I LOVED him. One day I called to make an appointment and they told me he was booked but I could see his partner who had the same bed side manner. I didn’t ask any questions and booked the appointment with the partner.

As I was uncomfortably sitting in the paper gown, the partner entered the room. He looked younger than me; I was horrified! Young Doctor ended up being a GREAT ObGyn. Once I was home, I Googled Young Doctor and he was only 5 years older than me. Dr. T ended up retiring, so Young Doctor became my new ObGyn.

So, why did I break-up with Young Doctor today? At the end of June, I’m moving to San Antonio (SA).





I decided to move in mid-April. It hasn’t been an easy decision. My sister and brother-in-law are moving to Omaha, NE for a year. My brother-in-law is finishing his residency in NE (he can do Botox). Easter weekend they asked me if I would be interested in renting their townhouse for a year for a great price. My immediate answer was, “NO.” After more thought and lots of prayer, I decided to give SA a year. My family lives in SA and I have friends and connections in SA.

I’m a BIG city girl. The bigger the city, the more exciting. I have always been open to re-locating. However, I was thinking NYC, Chicago, London, or Beijing. ;) The good news is San Antonio isn’t the smallest city in the US. It’s the 7th largest city in the U.S. and one of the top 10 Christmas cities in the U.S. Danielle that little Christmas fact was for you. Work has been wonderful and supportive. They’re completely okay with me moving and if I decide I don’t like SA, they’re okay with me making another move.

I’m officially leaving my city on June 27th. After a year, I’ll have to make another decision... stay in SA, move back to Houston, or move somewhere exotic. :) I’m excited to see what God has planned for me.

Very exciting! I am dreaming of moving to Texas and was just thinking about San Antonio today! :)

You GO! What's not to love about SA? I'm interested to hear your perspective, because I've always thought living there would be great fun...its a party town, of sorts.

And in a year, you can try somewhere else. Why not?

Life is short.
Have fun.
Take chances.

Keeping this little secret hasn't exactly been a challenge, but I'm glad you finally posted about your move.

I am SO excited about this new journey in your life. You obviously do not have all the answers right now, but I believe that there is a reason you are moving to San Antonio, and I am looking forward to this new chapter in your life.

It is a brave thing you're doing. For what it's worth, I am very proud of you. Is that cheesy? I hope not.

AND I cannot wait to come visit. As discussed, Christmas would be the perfect time to come to TX. You know I need to see how a top 10 Christmas town does Christmas.

I'll bet it feels even more real now that you have posted about it! The moving boxes must help, too.

Call you tomorrow.
xoxo

How exciting! And scary...I know! we have moved to Scotland almost 16 months ago...with a 5 month old! I didn't know a soul here, but it has turned out to be an amazing journey! Change is good! :) Good luck with your move! We are headed back to the states next week and then moving to TN later this summer. Another move...another journey! :)

Jill, Jill, Jill!
What news! Of course I hate to lose you here in Houston, but you will do great in SA. Now Jameson and I will have a place to stay when we come visit our favorite site, The ALAMO!
I thought of you this past weekend. I was at the Talbot's outlet and saw some dresses that looked like your style. I was going to tell you at church on Sunday, but you were deep in conversation and I didn't want to bother you.
You must keep blogging so we can know of your SA adventures. It would be fun for you to search out all of the cool things in SA and post about them. There is much history, art, FOOD, that we would like to hear about.
Love you!!! Paula
