I have some news. Some really big news. In case you didn’t figure that out from the title. Or from the fact that I haven’t blogged in a hot minute. I’d like to say I haven’t blogged in a while because I’ve been busy with this very big news, but the truth is that I haven’t blogged because I have just been busy with life, although the very big news has been somewhat all-consuming for the past couple of months. Oh and I’m not pregnant. I feel like I have to throw that disclaimer out every time I go to mention the very big news because let’s be honest, any time a 30’ish-year-old-married-woman-that-obviously-likes-kids-because-she’s-already-had-one says they have news, everyone assumes she’s pregnant. Because, I mean, God forbid a 30’ish-year-old-married-woman-that-obviously-likes-kids-because-she’s-already-had-one do something big other than get pregnant. AmIright?
So anyways, I have some really big news.
We are moving. I know. You’re so shocked seeing as how we have a habit of doing this every
few weeks time we get settled somewhere. This is different though.
We are moving to CHATTANOOGA. As in Tennessee. As in a new state. And it’s happening in t-minus three weeks! I recently accepted a new job opportunity…a really great one at that…and I am officially starting on October 12th. We are heading to Sarasota for a much needed, long vacay in the weeks before and then we will drop back in B’ham to wrap a few things up and then head on up to our new city. It’s exciting and scary and sad and bittersweet all at once. We love Birmingham and our life here, especially our amazing friends, and it’s definitely a comfort and security to be here, surrounded by everything we know, but you know, some times you have to step out of that comfort zone and take a leap of faith. Heck, uprooting from Sarasota and moving to Birmingham more than seven years ago was a HUGE leap of faith, and obviously that turned out pretty well. This is just another adventure that will hopefully end up being another great life decision. I’m excited to see what God has in store for us in this beautiful new city. I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t been a hurricane of emotions though.
