Movin’ On Up – The Bauer’s Are Headed Back To Lincoln

Christmas Card

So it’s official.  We are moving back to Lincoln (NE)!

Also, isn’t it just the BEST time of the year to make a major life change? It’s cold, and it’s smack dab in the middle of the holidays WHY NOT! I tell you what, Alex and I have impeccable timing.

Despite the fact the timing isn’t perfect, this is something we have both wanted for a very long time. We have occupied the southwest corner of Nebraska long enough, and to be honest, I need Target back in my life! Call me basic, but that place is a wonderland.

As excited as we both are it is incredibly bittersweet. We have been able to live in the same town as his parents for the last 3 years and it has been so great. We are a bit closer to my family which is nice. My nieces have had a few events in McCook so to be able to attend those without hesitation has been awesome.

Time seems to slow down when you move to a small town. This was something I just couldn’t quite get use to when we first moved here. I needed the hustle and bustle of the city! I needed the horns honked and the middle fingers flipped! You don’t really get much of that here. Don’t get me wrong, it’s quite nice to not get the finger daily, and you don’t dare honk your horn at someone. They will follow you home and scold you….I know this….because it might have happened to me…..once. Or twice…..

Moving on.

Long summer nights, and cozy winter evenings just seem better in a small town. There isn’t a need to be everywhere at once. I am so incredibly excited to get back to Lincoln, back to my friends, back to the place Alex and I fell in love. But it will be hard to say good-bye to what we have known as home for the last 3 years.

Wow, this post took a turn for the cheeserific pretty fast! I better end this now. Be prepared for many more posts about the joys of moving….and drinking…while moving…because my friends, you can’t have one without the other!

  1. So excited for you, friend!!! I loved reading this post and hearing about your sweet small town and how you’ve been able to visit with family! That is something I know dave and I really want, but I would probably be very bored living in a small town. AND NO TARGET!!! I would have a very hard time with that! So happy for ya’ll and can’t wait to hear about your adventures there! Be safe and have a wonderful Christmas!
