Dustin & Cami - North Carolina Bound

Wow! Did I mention Dustin and Cami are moving very soon to North Carolina. I almost forgot to mention that small detail. It's actually been on my mind so much lately but just haven't had a chance to share all the details here. With the world being so big these days, and young professionals traveling all over, I knew someday it was bound to happen. I guess you're just never quite ready for them to move so far away from home. But we really are so proud of both of them and all their accomplishments.

(Dustin with Grandma Gayle and Grandpa Fritz)

Dustin graduated recently from Utah Valley University with a degree in Business & Finance. He's been job hunting, and job hunting and job hunting . . . and now believes he's found the perfect situation created especially for him! He and Cami have always had a desire to travel and perhaps make a home in North Carolina. They like the educational opportunities there, how beautiful the wooded areas are, it's close to the beaches, and is just overall a good place to live, frequently makes Money Magazines top 100 cities in the USA to live in.

And that's where they will be going as Dustin was recently offered a position with Edward Jones doing personal financial advising. With the economy the way it is, financial advisors are expected to be in demand for many years to come as people try to get back on track with their savings and retirement funds.

(Everyone gathered around to wish them well)

Soooo . . . sadly we'll be saying farewell to Dustin in two days. He leaves for training and to find them an apartment. Cami will continue here for a few weeks working, then will join him in the Raleigh area in North Carolina.

Did you see how far away from Utah Raleigh, North Carolina is? I hear it's a great place to vacation. I guess we'll have to go test the waters (so to speak:)

Love you guys! Best wishes always! Thank goodness for blogs!
I'll see you on the computer :)

Oh, I am so sorry! I know it is good for kids to grow up and move away but it is still oh, so hard! I do not like it at all that my daughter lives in Colorado. It is even worse now that she is holding my only grandbaby hostage there as well. It is so hard to have them be so far away. But, you are right North Carolina does sound like a wonderful place to visit.

I also just noticed the book review on The Last Lecture. I loved that one as well. I was pepared to find it depressing, but when it ended I felt so motivated to live my life to the fullest and to always be optimistic.It was a good read.

Anyway, good luck with the goodbyes. I feel for ya!

Thank you so much for the help about the strawberries! Next time I'm going to use your advice and dry them for an hour. Hopefully I will remember it for next year!

Kristin, It is hard to have your kids go. You are happy that they are movoing onward and upward and things are working out for them but it doesn't feel the void in your heart when you miss them. I am in Montana right now with my girls and I don't want to come home. I guess we have to look at it that it's another place to go see and visit :)

They will love it there. North Carolina is almost as beautiful as Virginia :) Plus, you'll get to visit. You didn't say what city they were going too, but if it's Charlotte...then the church is really strong there. I visited my cousin's ward there several times and loved the people.

Oh, I can't imagine my daughter will one day go away from home! That 's the way it is, isn't it?
Children grow, even if in their mom's heart they will always be babies! ;)
good luck to your son and to you also!:)

I can't imagine how hard it will be when my kids start moving away. Hang in there. I guess you will have to go to North Carolina a few times to see them. I glad that they were able to find something, it sounds like a great job.

Awww! That is sure a long way from home. Oh but what a wonderful place to be. Being from the Charlotte area, I LOVE North Carolina. We enjoy going hiking up on the Blue Ridge Mountains. :)
