TOP: C/O STATELY TYPE

So life does this funny thing, where it likes to be unpredictable. Last year Trevor spent months interviewing all over the country, and by the fall had accepted a job offer in Vegas. Accepting a job offer a good eight months before you graduate is extremely comforting, but also hard to explain to people. People were confused about when we were moving. They didn't seem to understand how law school and jobs after work. The idea is you work for firms in the summers, and hopefully (fingers crossed) have a job offer before or by the time you graduate. It is normal and ideal to have a job secured going into your third year. But it is also possible to have other opportunities come up during that time as well.
Since the fall I have known there was the possibility that our plans could change. However the possibility seemed small because typically grades etc. don't change much during the third year, and as the year progresses, more and more positions are being filled, creating less job opportunities as you approach graduation. So it was set, we were going to Vegas. I was surprisingly sad about leaving Utah. Somehow, somewhere along the way, Utah stole my heart. I fell in love with these mountains, and made some pretty great friends. All of that made me realize how much I was going to miss it here. When I came to Utah to attend college I always knew I would eventually move away again. It was as if it was a fact. I had every intention of leaving eventually. Then life happened, I met Trevor, got married and we ended up at BYU Law School. We almost went to law school out of state, and when we decided on BYU Law we both were still pretty sure we would leave Utah after school. Getting the job offer in Vegas confirmed that for me.
Well, that all changed when Trevor got a job offer he couldn't refuse here in Utah. We have been sitting on this news for awhile now, but since graduation is this week I thought I would officially update everyone on my blog. We are both really excited about this opportunity, and Trevor couldn't be happier. So here we are, moving back to the 801 - where we met, fell in love, got engaged, and started life as a newlywed couple. I can't help but shake my head because every time I have thought we were going to leave this State we get sucked back in. I have spent so many years thinking about "when we leave" that I never thought about staying and really making a life here. Looks like we will be creating many more memories in Salt Lake City then we had originally planned. And again, I am surprised how excited I am to stay. I can't complain, Utah has been so good to me. I guess I am officially now from Utah! BAH! We are both very excited :)
