We Are Moving!

In just one month, we will be living here...

Georgetown, Kentucky!  Some readers already know this, or suspected it, but I did not want to officially post about this until I gave my notice at work.


My husband is being transferred by his employer - he has been working in Georgetown since last fall, and just home on the weekends.  His company made the decision to relocate him about two months ago.

Our trip to KY in early April was to check out boarding barns, homes, and for our youngest daughter to interview for a new working student position.  Lex got the job (yeah!), we found a fab barn for our OTTB, Riva will board where Lex will be working, and we found a house to rent.  It was a wirlwind 4 days!

Lex will be a working student for Reese Koffler-Stanfield of Maplecrest Farm and Riva will reside at her barn.  Lex will ride Riva a day or two a week and I will be able to ride whenever I want, plus take lessons with Reese.  Great opportunity for Lex, Riva, and me!

Reese recommended a private barn for our TB, Cheers, that is not far from Maplecrest Farm.  The owner is just taking on a few boarders - we are her first customers - quiet, lovely property with lots of area to ride out.

We found a sweet small house for rent, just a few blocks from the historical downtown part of Georgetown.  We really want to live in the area for awhile before we look for a house to buy.  We will be renting out our own home in Indiana - put it up for sale when we find the right place in KY.

So, this month will be busy!  I am going to the May 11 show in Edinburgh with Riva - Training Level test 2 & 3 again.  Other than work and riding, my time will be spent packing!

I am so excited for you! Also a bit jealous, every time I go to Lexington area I ask myself why I don't live there. I just drove through Georgetown yesterday to visit a friend. Such a cute town. I am so happy Lex found another great opportunity!

I love Georgetown! How lovely! And Reese is awesome! Way to go Lex, you guys are going to love her! What a fantastic position!

The real question is, do Jen and I get to crash with you when we're in Lexington? ;)

Can't wait to see you in May!
