BACK TO FLORIDA!

Y'all. 
I can't even with all the excitement Dom and I have had in the first 3 weeks of the year!
On Friday Dom got the call that his transfer was officially approved and we are moving back to Florida!!  We will be moving to Bradenton, all the way across from West Palm Beach!  I absolutely love the west coast of Florida (hello, sunsets!), so I couldn't be happier!

I can't believe I am even typing those words.  When we got to Pennsylvania and realized even more how much we were meant for Florida Dom inquired about transferring to his medical school's Bradenton campus, but was told it is almost impossible. 

When I heard that, I heard the "impossible" part, but Dom heard the "almost."
See, Dom has this thing about not taking "no" for an answer.  Sometimes it drives me crazy, but sometimes it's my favorite quality of his!  To make a long story short, after consulting with the dean of the school and professors, he petitioned to the president of the whole medical school for a transfer.   The dean didn't think his argument (based on the fact that his company, MonoMano is based down there) was strong enough, but he sent it anyways. 

{His new campus.  I mean come on!}
But...she said yes!
However, that wasn't enough.  The president agreed to accommodate Dom if possible, but due to accreditation regulations he could only transfer if a spot opened up at Bradenton.  Also, to account for the fluctuation of students in the begining each campus accepts a certain percentage more than they can.  So we needed even more students to drop or fail out so Dom could take a seat and they would still be within their numbers.  It was SO hard waiting, but it was so worth it when we got the call!!

Dom and I will be moving down at the end of May.  We haven't decided yet if we will be living in Bradenton, where the campus is, or in Sarasota which is a few miles south.  It's also crazy to think that 10 months after we packed everything up and moved up the coast we will be doing the same thing again.  Starting over again will be hard, but we know we are both meant to be down south.  Once you know what you want your forever to be you want it to start right away!  It will be a little hard, but it's worth it.  Either way we are both absolutely thrilled! We are finally starting our real lives together, engaged, and in the Sunshine State.  I could not be happier!!

2014? I seriously love you.

  25. congrats on getting to go back to Florida! I can't imagine how great it was to get that news while living in Pennsylvania in this crazy cold weather!!! Also, I love the west coast of Florida. I go every year for a few days for Spring Training and every year I get upset that we can only stay for a short period of time!

  27. Congrats on the move back to FL! I have family in Bradenton and friends in Sarasota... in fact we were just down there in December visiting! So much fun!!

  28. Congratulations on the big move! I just got done moving to Tampa Bay, and I'll have to say, it has been very enjoyable for me. Since I am from the northeast, it is great to live somewhere with nice weather all year round. I was doing some renovations to my home and I have been looking at some mailboxes in Florida that I can get in front of my house because I think it is something that can help make it stand out from the rest of the neighborhood.
