Starting A New Chapter

It's really hard to believe that just 3 weeks ago Brad and I were sitting on the couch talking, and he said something to the effect of, "well, since I'm looking for a job anyway, what about moving back up to Indy now instead of switching jobs again in another year?"

So here we go. Three weeks later. A new job, a house up for sale, some very upset in-laws and neighbors ;), and one exhausted Mommy.

It is never easy to leave behind really, REALLY close friends and family. It's never easy to step out of your comfort zone and go into the unknown - or semi-unknown in our case. But we are anxious for our new life, being close to my parents and sister, and rekindling old friendships.

So here's to starting a new chapter, to packing up a very cluttered house, to leaving the only "home" our girls have ever known, to saying sad goodbyes, but then being welcomed home with open arms.

Just when I thought I was done with crying.

OH MY GOSH!!!! You really are?!?!? When??

Oh man....I am so bummed (and a bit jealous) that I am not there, but at least YOU will be there when I come next.

We'll pray that your house sells soon! I didn't realize that Brad had a job already. That's awesome God provided one so quickly. I'm sure He'll take care of the house too.

Hopefully we'll be able to see you more often now that you'll be in town. :)
