checking in

The last few weeks have been a little crazy.

I think since I last posted we went to McKinney to visit my family while John was on the youth choir mission tour. He has a wonderful week and so did we.

We all got back to Victoria and our last days there were very full. We had our last Sunday at our church, celebrated Hudson turning 2 and me turning 30! Traveled to Austin to visit John's family. Came back to Victoria to pack up our house (well the professional packers did that), then the movers came, then we sold our house and said goodbye to a house that we've loved almost as much as a child. It was a VERY emotional few days.

We had to say goodbye to friends and a place that we've called home for 4 years. It was exhausting mentally and physically.

We are in McKinney now spending time with my family before we begin our journey to Birmingham. We will leave Monday and arrive in Birmingham Tuesday. All of our things will be delivered on the huge 18 wheeler moving truck (that Hudson was in awe of) on Wednesday.

I have not forgotten about this blog. But it has definitely taken residence on the back burner for a little while. I have lots to blog about (Hudson turning 2 and Emma turning 8 months, plus the rest of the home tour, our moving process, my 30th birthday, etc.) and I will get to all of it soon. But for now, I just wanted to check in and say that all is well.

Next time I blog, we'll be living in Birmingham!

I'm not even sure where I discovered your blog. I live in PA, am a 50 something wife/mother of 2 grown children. I remember reading your blog a while ago and you wanted no big life changes this year. Funny how God has plans in store for us. Good luck to you, can't wait to read all the catchups!
