Decision to Move

April 1st, 2015 at 08:04 am

I have "officially" been with my boyfriend since December of 2010, but I had known him for years prior. He's always been drawn to the outdoors whether it's to go fishing, snowboarding, biking, camping, kayaking, or just sitting around a bonfire. I am also what you may call an "outdoorsy gal" because I've been boating, fishing, and camping with my dad since I could walk.
Living in Montana has always been a dream of his, while I didn't think I'd ever be brave enough to take such a big risk and move away from everything I've ever known. My family and job were huge safety nets that I didn't want to leave.
A year ago, my bf had plans to visit a relative for a month of fly-fishing in Montana. On a whim, he applied for a landscaping position and got the job immediately because of his years of landscape experience. That month-long vacation turned into a full-time April - November job in which he was quickly promoted to a foreman position.
He had asked me if I would move out there with him and here we are today! Two months from relocating to a city that is 1,000 miles away from the place I've been living for 27 years.
My mom was distraught when I told her a year ago of our plans and she still isn't comfortable with it, but she's trying. My sister and I have always been extremely close to our parents and my mom especially has always been over-protective and wanting us close. My dad just sees this move as a new place for him to vacation LOL.
My boyfriend heads back to Montana to start working again on Easter morning and I'll head out the first week of June - what an adventure I've fallen into!
I was told two weeks ago by my CEO that they are creating a job for me to be able to work from home in Montana and I am so thankful. One less thing to stress about (and that was a BIG stressor!)

Stay tuned as I chronicle moving prep and life out in Big Sky!
