Our new home in Utah
In April I made my move to Utah, keeping our home in Redmond going while our son finished out the school year and the summer in Redmond. Since then, I've been living in "temporary housing" with the intention of finding a new permanent home by the end of the year.
Fortunately, we found a home last week that we love. We put in an offer and have reached agreement. At the inspection yesterday (no "show stoppers" found) I took some pics to send to the family back in the UK. I admit it - I'm proud of our new home and hugely looking forward to moving us all in at the end of August, so below are three of the pics I took.
Our new home will be in a gated community in Sandy, UT. The mountains (check out the pics by local photorapher David Whitten) in the background of the second photo are part of the Wasatch Range - great for biking and loads of hiking trails through the canyons and alpine valleys. In winter months the mountains are host to some of world's finest ski resorts. All-year-round-outdoor-coolness. Very different to central London...but with modern life's necessities - 9 Starbucks in the local area (including a drive-thu) and high speed internet via cable :-)
