Snyder, TX

Some of you know that Dustin and I will most likely be moving from College Station this coming May. This will be our 5th move in just 2.5 short years of marriage, but this time it feels different. I've had my share of anxiety and mood swings and tears and resistance about each move so far, but this time I feel more at peace about it. This is the first time it feels like it might be permanent. This really may be the spot that we raise our family and grow old together and that makes me almost giddy. Dustin works so hard to provide everything we need and still have some left over to support my shopping habit :) He is selfless in all aspects - always willing to give of himself for others and for this I love him. I hope this new job is one that he enjoys. There are many aspects of this move that are exciting...like being closer to family and good friends, good jobs for both of us, living in a small town, settling down, and hopefully owning our own home someday. I know the positive outweighs the negative, but it will not make it any easier to leave the people we love here in College Station. There is just something about this place that I really love.

So as we begin down this road, apply for jobs, look at houses, visit congregations of the Lord's church, and prepare to move, I hope and pray that we are making the right decisions. God has blessed us and taken care of us thus far and I am confident that will continue to be the case in the future.

Here's to yet another new start...

Happy Birthday Madison!

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly time goes by without us even noticing. Madison turns three years old today and it seems like just a few months ago she was born. I am undeniably smitten with that sweet little girl. I just hope she loves me forever as much as she loves me now.

She had a friend come to her party and I have to suggest that you take any opportunity you get to just sit and watch two three year olds play together. It was like listening to two small adults hold a conversation. This is what they showed me when I asked how old they were:

Happy Birthday Madison! You are the sweetest little thing I've ever known!

A New Year

I quite frequently visit blogs of friends and family and love to read stories and see pictures of everyday events in the lives of people I do not get to see or talk to as often as I would like. I hope to do the same for others - to share a piece of our life with those who we wish we could see more often. So please stop by every now and then and check in on our little family of two.
To get everyone up to date...Dustin and I are presently living in College Station, TX. We moved here last summer when the city life got to be too much. Dustin is working for a custom home builder and I am teaching an elementary special education class. I am very blessed to have the job that I do. It may be shocking for those of you who talked to me or listened to me cry the first six weeks of school, but I am doing what I love and count each of my students a very special blessing. They are each very dear to me and I have grown tremendously because of them. We worship with an incredible group of people who we love dearly, we have wonderful friends, and every now and then Lance comes to stay with us for a week or so. Life is Grand!
I hope this new year finds everyone happy and healthy!
