Our New Home in Utah

Lindsey Huster Blog Posts Leave a Comment

Arriving at our new home in Utah was super surreal! We had been planning for months and imagining ourselves there. This is what we were waiting for! It was very late Sunday night and we had just driven over 1,600 miles in two days. We were full of excitement and yet extremely exhausted! We basically grabbed our overnight bags and …

Let Day 2 begin!  We had driven roughly 1000 miles in 20 hours on Saturday. There were about 600 more miles to go. We were extremely happy with the way Saturday played out. We started early, no issues along the way, and the drive really didn’t feel long until the last hour when we got a bit tired and restless …

We left Keith’s parents house around 4:30 am on July 30th, 2016.  We were finally driving to Utah!  I’ll never forget those moments of packing our overnight bags, getting Lexi settled on her pillow, and leaving our small town behind. The drive would be long, but I didn’t care.  I looked forward to just sitting and enjoying the scenery.  Stress …

We had been planning our downsizing for awhile.  Now that we knew where we would be living and the size of the unit, we had a better idea of what we could take with us and what needed to be sold. We had already been weeding through our possessions for the last few months, but now needed a more precise …

Keith’s daydream would be coming true! Eventually we would be buying a home in Utah. Ultimately we decided on Pleasant Grove…. about 1 mile from his beloved American Fork. I have to give him credit for his research, this really was a great area to live! We weren’t quite ready to actually purchase just yet since we wouldn’t be moving …

We’re Moving To Utah!

It quickly became clear that the vacation home plan would not allow us the time we wanted for outdoor activities and travel.  It would also be costly to maintain two households, fly back and forth, etc. The more we thought about it, the more we wanted from this adventure and decided to go all in!  This was Keith’s plan all …

Are We Serious About Moving?

Lindsey Huster Blog Posts Leave a Comment

Keith and I had talked about it, we joked about it… but now it was time to ask ourselves, are we serious about moving? We were saving money, not exactly knowing what it might be for. Keith had accepted a remote software position about two years before so work wasn’t a concern. He was working from home and home could …

Keith’s Daydream

Lindsey Huster Blog Posts Leave a Comment

When I first met Keith he shared with me that he had thought about moving pretty far away when he first started his career. This was intriguing, but scary at the same time. I loved the idea of traveling, but moving wasn’t really part of it for me. After we were married there had always been a part of us …
