A Super Exciting Announcement

Hi everyone!

I wanted to take a break from your regularly-scheduled guest post programming to let you guys in on some super exciting news over here at Chez Roblin.

A few months ago Rob informed me of his desire to pursue a position with a Hotshot crew.  You can read more about Hotshot Crews here, but in a nutshell he wanted to be a wildland firefighter.  Naturally this admission met with some hesitation from me (I'm not sure why the man enjoys finding new and creative ways to make me worry), but ultimately I know my husband well enough to know that when he wants something he is damn well going to get it.  It's one of the many things I love about him.

Anyway he applied to several locations and as of yesterday we found out that we will be moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico this coming March.   I for one am thrilled, as Santa Fe was my preferred location due to more daycare opportunities for Cypress and more "keep Caitlin busy" opportunities when Rob is out on assignment.  Rob is just excited to be getting out of Maine and out of school, and to be doing something that he will certainly love.

So my blog is about to get hopefully more interesting as I chronicle life in a new state and life as a wildland firefighter's wife. 

I hope you all have had a wonderful week and Happy Holidays!

  4. I'm so freakin excited for you guys! Rob and Nate are alike in that they prefer to have jobs that cause us to worry but I support Nate no matter what he wants to do. I guess thats what we wives/girlfriends are for!

  6. OMG...that's awesome! I've known a few people over the years that have moved to New Mexico and love it there. My uncle's favorite place in the world is in New Mexico...it's called Red River. If I remember right...it's pretty remote and in a valley surrounded by mountains...totally gorgeous! Now the fun of packing begins...Blah! Start now...March will be here before you know it! Hope you guys have a Happy Christmas! :)

  10. I have some friends here in Flagstaff, AZ that are wildland firefighters and they LOVE it! There were a lot of people from Sante Fe that helped with the fire we had here last year as well! It should be super exciting for you, especially to move across the country!
