random thoughts on dental school and moving

I went to San Francisco on vacation last summer (during my blogging hiatus), and I was looking through all my pictures on my phone that never got to see the light of day. I felt bad for them, so here's one. That is one super photogenic city.

Yesterday morning, Shae clicked submit on his dental school applications. We have basically narrowed down where Shae will be going to dental school to three options. One here close to home, another one in Vegas (close to his home), and one in San Francisco. At this point, we're pretty sure we'll choose the Utah one so we can stay close to our families while we start our own family, if he gets in there. It would be a great thing to be close to family since Shae will be super busy a lot and I'll be alone a lot, but I do also feel like it would be so good to move to a new place like San Francisco and get some new experiences. Vegas is fine too but I'd probably die in the heat tbh.

Another reason we want to stay close to home, still family related, is that after dental school (which Shae is planning to do through the Air Force), we will most likely get stationed somewhere far away from home, and even possibly overseas (cross your fingers for Italy!), and so we feel like we should be near our people while we can.

Lots of pros and cons to consider. I do kind of have an itch to see and live in new places, and San Francisco might be my spirit city (and seeing the ocean daily gives me life), but I realize that in the end we will make a good choice and be happy with it.

See you in October, this decision.

Sending love and prayers your way! Knowing you and Shae though, the decision you make won't be impulsive, so you can be sure that it will be a good one. Excited to see where your adventures take you! xx

It will be so exciting wherever you go!!
