Why? ... Why Not?

It's about time we get to the nitty-gritty. Down & dirty. Fundamentals, people.

Before we can move further in our relationship we need to get to know each other better.  Want to know more about me? Follow along as I ask myself some deep (and some superficial) questions:

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging (VERY recently) because we are moving. When we move we will be relocating to a town (notice I said "town" & not "city") that is very unlike our current location.  At first, I wanted to be able to easily share the experience with friends & family. Then I got to thinking that maybe my reflections on our new life would interest others and perhaps blogging could become a new hobby.

Why do you need a new hobby?
This will be addressed more later; however, once you learn a bit more about our "big move" you will understand why a plethora of hobbies is a must.

Why do you think people would even be interested in reading your "reflections" on your new life?
Here's the thing, I am neither a city-girl, nor a country-girl.  We don't live in a large city but I wouldn't exactly call it country-living either.  Pretty soon here, after our relocation, we are about to become country-folk. Even if we were to try to fight it, it will be inevitable. But we're not going to fight it. We're going to embrace it! We are totally psyched to be moving here:
Future home. Lots of potential.
Have you heard at all about all the crazy things going on in western ND? Well, we're not headed out into that big frenzy; however, we are headed in that general direction. I'm going to be full of information about what life is like out there. It might not always be the most news-worthy but it will be full of enthusiasm, perspective, and (obviously) a little sarcasm.

Why are you moving?
After we committed to making the "big move" friends & family were always asking us this question.  This is literally a screen shot of our "Reasons Why" that I compiled on April 26, 2012. I immediately sent it out in a mass e-mail. (Notice: Some parts have been blurred out from the original version for posterity. Actually, no. They were blurred out in case you're a creeper and want to stalk us.)

Why are you not writing about all the neat-o DIY projects you want to try?
Easy. Because our apartment looks like this:
One wall of our apartment.
Free time? We pack. Date night? We pack. Friday night plans? We pack. It will pay off eventually, but in the meantime I have a huge, awesome list of fancy-shmancy projects I wish we were rather working on. So bear with me kiddos, because eventually PHL will be bursting with inspiration, daily reflections, and DIY fun, one cowboy boot at a time.

T minus 26 days.
