First, I'm so proud of him for finishing school! He wanted to be done last year, but he decided to hold out just one more year to earn his Master's degree. He's not quite done yet, but he is working hard at it almost every day to make sure he'll be all done come April.
As for the job, it will be for a company called Pariveda Solutions. They flew us down to Dallas a few months back, but at that time Trevor hadn't officially accepted the offer. I guess you could say all our ducks weren't in a row yet. We're thrilled to have the opportunity for such great employment, especially at this time when it seems like so many people are struggling to find work at all. This company has all the things our personal finance teacher at BYU, Scott Marsh, taught us to look for in a company -health insurance, 401k investment with matching options, ability to grow within the company (just to name a few). When Bro. Marsh told us to look for these things it sounded nearly impossible to find something like that. Well the good news, we did!
As for the big change, Pariveda has office locations across the country, but none in Utah. So we're going to be moving. We wanted to be near family so we selected the Washington, D.C. office, because Trevor's brother Scott (who came to visit) and his family live out there.
Last week I flew out to start hunting for housing. My incredibly kind sister-in-law, Maryanne, drove me all around town to look at apartments. I found some potential options and mostly just had a great time playing with my nieces and nephew.
