Cause down the shore everything's all right

I'm moving. I'm not sure if I've made that clear to everyone in the blog world. Saturday morning I leave the sunshine state once and for all to head home to the motherland - the Jersey Shore.

Florida has been good to me, much as I hate to admit it. I've made wonderful friends. I've been able to spend a lot of time with my family members who all seemed to migrate down here around the same time that I did. I went back to school and finally attained the college degree that has eluded me all these years. I found my calling as a teacher and have never been happier with my career. Florida has served its purpose for me, and for that I am grateful. But now it's time to move on.

I'm a Jersey girl and proud of it. It's home, where I belong. I've missed the salt in the air, the change of the seasons, and the community of a small town. I look forward to reconnecting with old friends, spending time with mom, and starting life afresh.

Wish me luck.

Admit it...you missed the abundance of Jersey goombas, didn't you? There's something about a silk sweatsuit that really gets your blood pumping, huh?

You're coming back to NJ and I am trying to get out.

Good luck on the move, almost neighbor. :)

Who said you can never go home again?

Hope you find everything you're looking for and more.

Hope you have a safe trip and that 'one thing' that always seems to get broken during a move isn't too dear to your heart.

I thought Jersey was a type of cow... um... never mind.

Nance said...

Hope the move is a smooth one! Do you have a teaching job waiting for you already?

Good luck Brookelina. As a fellow Jersey native I understand your desire to come back to the best kept secret in the country. I am very happy for you and look forward to having you back.

You must be in Jersey by now. If your move is anything like mine, it'll all be fabulous. Good luck.

Actually, if it's like mine you won't blog quite as often because you'll be so damned busy just enjoyin' the place.
