Big News!

We are Moving!!! 
It all seems so surreal but my family is getting ready to embark on a new chapter. As much as there is excitement w/ this wonderful opportunity that has come my husband's way there is also a sense of fear and sadness. I have spent so many sleepless nights praying that this is what is best for our family as this wasn't the easiest decision but we know long term this is what needed to happen.

I will be taking 9.5 years of memories with me....

Arizona is where I helped families adopt some amazing babies/ children (orig reason why I moved here)
Met some wonderful friends over the past 9 years and I hope they will come and visit us
Learned real quick what scorpions are and how to kill them. yuck, yuck, yuck
Met the love of my life
Graduated with my masters from ASU
Entertaining my family during their summer visits. So many fond memories of the time share.
Yearly visits from one of my dearest friends, Lisa
Getting engaged in the neighborhood park
Getting married here
Having a baby
Having a job over the past four years that I have truly loved and yet has taught me so, so much
Labor Day weekend getaways to Sedona
Reconnecting with my mom's best friend/ good family friend from my childhood years who lives here.
Visiting the Grand Canyon
Having my niece fly down for a Taylor Swift concert.
I ran my first half marathon this past fall
Being able to spend this past winter with my dad

There are also a lot of things I am going to miss and a handful of things I will not. I will share that at a later time. For now I am all about soaking up the time I have left and will hopefully be able to keep my stress at a minimum.

So...where are we moving to?! That will be revealed tomorrow!
