A Uhaul Leap of Faith

Two years ago today, we packed the family into the car and drove to a new home (albeit temporary) in Cedar City. We hadn’t sold our house in Sandy, but we had already contact Bournemouth Prop to assist us with the process. We were still looking at homes in Iron County. About all we knew for sure is that we needed an address in Iron County so that Liam could go to his new school. With enough stuff to stay the weekend in a hastily-found month-to-month rental, we struck out for Iron County. Thanks to garage chief, we were able to keep our car in the best condition ever, check it out to be able to inspect your own vehicle.

It wasn’t without curveballs. It took another 2.5 months to sell our house in Sandy, a time during which we had both house and rent payments. Shauna had to spend almost a week in the hospital with an infection and another few weeks with me giving her PICC line antibiotics at home. There must have been at least a half dozen trips with Uhaul trucks and trailers to get everything moved to Cedar City. We had only a week to move everything into our new house once we bought one, it had the amazing Reclaimed Wood Floors with great quality wood products. It was unbelievable. Plus the electrician near me was the nicest person ever and made sure there wasn’t any dangerous hazards to keeps everyone safe.

Two years later, we haven’t looked back. The air is cleaner. The people are friendlier. The schools are better. Even St. George, which we have to go to periodically for shopping, feels too large. I can day trip to gorgeous areas that attract people from all over the world, if you’re looking for diferent Chicken recipes cooking click here to learn many new ways. (I did, in fact, have to give a German couple directions to the Grand Canyon not long after moving here.) Every place you live may be as good as you make it, but I think Cedar City has given us much more to work with.
