Most everyone who reads this blog already know this, but we are moving to Colorado at the end of this month. Hubby was offered a job there for significantly more than we currently earn. Yes, we will be able to get a house. (BACKYARD!) We are also grateful to leave our butt-bumping kitchen days behind us! We are very excited about this new adventure for our family and look forward to seeing what God has in store for us there. We really feel like this is God's will as so many things are taking care of themselves. Hubby has two sisters who live there, and they have 5 kiddos all together, so the little ones will be able to play with their cousins all the time now.

We vacationed there for 10 days back in August. We didn't realize at the time that God was just giving us a sneak peak into our new digs. We were all taken with the area and with the two churches that we attended while we were there. We dreamed of moving there 'one day' but never imagined that it would be so soon. We feel very blessed.

Although we are super excited to go, we're heart broken to leave our friends back in Texas. I've never lived outside of Texas, so this is a real adventure for me. We have so many amazing friends, and our churches have grown and shaped my faith. I am thankful that we live in the 21st century and can keep in contact with them all pretty easily. We're already planning on having a space for 'visitors,' so if you know us, consider yourselves officially invited to look us up if you're ever in the area.

If you think of it, would you please pray for us to transition smoothly. That the packing and transporting of our things would also go smoothly. That we would be sensitive to God's leading and guiding regarding the selling of our condo and the purchase of our future house.

Thanks. God Bless!
