Five months after picking up and leaving our jobs, home and friends in Chicago -- the only home The Husband and I had ever had together -- with three kids five and under to move back to my hometown and live in the house I grew up in (and live with my parents, mind you), I wrote this post ruminating over the Big Question we kept getting: "But why did you move?"

I wasn't sure I had the answer to that question, until this post's words and pictures spilled out of my brain with little thought or effort. This post triggered the largest feedback to date on my young blog, with many people privately messaging me to tell me how it touched their hearts. I offer it to the BlogHer community in hopes that it touches yours too.
