ARIZONA!

I know that some of you have already heard, but for the rest of you...the Carpenter's are moving to Arizona!
Didn't see it coming? Neither did I. Jeff got a position with Troon Golf based out of Scottsdale (still doing accounting work). I know a golf company, how could he say no. So we are packing up and heading out. It is pictures like the one above that make me think Arizona may be a fun experience, a new experience anyway. I am really heartbroken about having to leave our family, friends, neighbors, our home and our jobs. We have been so blessed to live in the community that we do and have our family and friends so near. Right now we are in the process of trying to find a place to rent down there, and getting our home ready for someone new, and enjoy some of our favorite things about Utah while we are still here. What a busy time!

Wow! How exciting! I feel your pain in having to pack up your house and move, not only is it not a fun process, but the thought of leaving a house you made your home is kind of sad! I hope everything goes well for you!

Congrats Jeff! It sounds like you got the dream job. Good job following my example and leaving Tanner! I hope you had a fun time at Disney...the pictures are cute.

Very exciting! Embarking on a new adventure is always thrilling---it's the packing and moving that is a huge pain! Good luck with the entire move and finding a place to live! Arizona will be awesome and it sounds like Jeff has landed an 'ideal' job for a golfer!!

Congratulations on the new job, Jeff! I am so excited for you guys - you will absolutely LOVE AZ! We sure did. If you need help on good apts or areas to live, let me know - I'll help with what I can. (I can also give tips on must try restaurants and some fun entertainment.) :)

Nicole,

Now that you are out of the Country, how do I get in contact with you? We would love to know some of the secrets of AZ. Later, Jeff

We are sad that you guys are leaving but I'm sure you'll find a lot to love in AZ and at least you won't have to worry about getting snowed out of our community again! Atleast we can keep in touch with blogs too! :)

For AZ secrets... e-mail nicole.rowland@yahoo.com. :) Lots easier than calling international (and cheaper)!

oops I didn't realize I was logged in under Cody - if you hadn't figured it out, that is from me (and so is this), Nicole

WOW!!!! That is exciting. Itsn't it funny how we are all moving around the world. I hope everything works out for you! It is sad to move on, but what a great adventure.

I must admit, we're thrilled to have you guys come down to AZ. I'm sure Kaylie and Kylie will find some trouble to get into in not too long. We wish you the best packing and getting down here. I hated the goodbyes to family and friends, but the chance to depend on each other has been really rewarding. Good luck and please call if you need ANYTHING!!
