East Coast Bound

The Weekly Bite Family is moving to the East Coast. This move is very bittersweet for us, that’s why I love the above quote so much. Three years ago, life moved us to San Diego. We had lived there before for six years, so we already knew we loved it, but what we didn’t realize was how much we missed our East Coast friends and family. So, we are heading back to the Washington, DC area.

The past four weeks have been so busy. (With a heavy heart) we sold our San Diego home and bought a lovely home in the DC area. Now, we are embarking on a two week road trip with two cars, two kids, lots of snacks, and more caffeine than I care to admit.

Life is taking us back to the East Coast. While we are sad to be leaving such a beautiful city, we are beyond excited to be close to our family and friends again! This is what life is all about right? I think? Life changes all the time and all we can do is focus on the positive. I have never travelled cross country with two toddlers, but our cars are stocked with crafts, books, snacks, and everything else you can think of.

While our family is traveling and adjusting to the move, posts might be a little slow. My goal is to check in with you at least once per week, then transition back to regular posting.

See you all on the East Coast!!

    I know this sounds selfish, but I’m hoping this means we get to meet up some day when we travel up the east coast from Atlanta. Good luck and safe travels! Oh and remember to breathe!

    I’ll miss seeing you at preschool pick up! Have a great trip. We did the same road trip but that was before kids ; )

    Who would have thought, when you moved away 3 years ago, that you would be back? It really is incredible how much life changes in a relatively short amount of time (for example, you made the last cross-country trip with only ONE child!). I, for one, have often wished that you didn’t live so far away, so my wish has come true! 🙂 I know the move east is truly bittersweet for you, but the East Coasters are SO EXCITED to have you back!! Good luck with the road trip, and we can’t wait to see you soon!

    Sorry to lose you again to the East Coast but happy that you are happy about it. Safe travels! I crossed country by car 4 times by the age of 7 with my Navy family so it can be done 🙂

    Enjoy your trip! We LOVED our extended road trip, and both of our kids did great with all that you mentioned: two cars, two kids, and lots of snacks (and the occasional five-hour energy for the adults)! Have a safe trip, and I hope to see you soon on the right coast!

    Yay! So excited for you. Who knew you would miss it so much to come back! At first glance, in my feedly, I thought this was another blog and not yours. Did your husband have the opportunity to transfer his job back too? Good luck with the trip. Hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
