Last Monday, I started my new job in Salt Lake City. I flew out there on Sunday, worked all week and flew back to Savannah on Friday afternoon. (For those who hadn’t heard, my role here in Savannah was eliminated in January. I was out of work exactly one month.) I can’t beleive how blessed I am to find work so quickly, to find a role that is actually a step up in accountability, to be able to return to my beloved Rocky Mountains, and to land at such a good company (England Logistics). You have to love a company that openly proclaims that their passion is “enabling and watching their people grow.” (I’m pinching myself.)
On Saturday, I drove to Hilton Head with neighbor (Cap’n) Steve where we crewed for a sailboat race from Hilton Head back to the Savannah Yacht Club. A beautiful day, but so light on wind that the race was scratched and we ended up motoring most of the way down. Thank you to Brooke for letting me play away after being away all week. That’s love.
For Sale: Movie Set.
We are selling our house to move to Salt Lake City. If you know anyone in the Savannah area looking to move into Olde Towne, please forward this link to them. This is such a great spot to raise children. We have THE BEST neighbors.
On Sunday, we had to get out of the house as there were a couple of showings. Jonathan wanted to go to the play “Wizard of Oz” while Charlotte and I did not, so we split up.
It was such a beautiful day and there was nothing to do, so we went downtown to walk around. We parked at Monterrey Square (the square where the story Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is centered) and headed up Bull St. toward the Savannah River. It was so nice to spend a lazy day with my beautiful daughter on such a beautiful day in such a beautiful city. I will miss Savannah very much.
A quick stop in B&D Burgers for a “beer to go.” When Jonathan and I go on a Daddy date, this is where we inevitably end up. Because, according to Jonathan, “all the ladies know me there.” Ran into Catherine (Jonathan’s girlfriend and my favorite bartender) on the way her way home. We are gonna miss you!
Charlotte and I had a great day. She wasn’t real hot on the idea of walking around downtown, but in the end she said “this is the best day ever…except for Disney world.” Oh, well. I don’t feel too bad taking second place.
I will really miss Savannah. If you haven’t been here, put it on your bucket list. There is no more welcoming place on earth. And if you have the opportunity to spend it with your favorite daughter, all the better.
