Carolina on my mind...

This is the big weekend. We are loading up and making the big move back East. When I say these past several weeks have been full of mixed emotions (and a major lack of sleep!), that could very well be the understatement of the year!

We are so sad to leave our dear friends and our wonderful life, but we are also very excited to be closer to our families and our friends in that neck of the woods. We will both be starting new jobs that will bring new challenges, new lessons and a new life for our family. A very wise mentor of mine said recently "Transition is hard. Transition is necessary." I hope I always remember that, because there will undoubtedly be bumps along this road.

I am thankful for technology during times like this. Thanks to Facebook and blogs and email, it's much easier to keep up with old friends as life takes you to new places.

The day I moved "out west" I was so sad, even though deep down, I was sure it was for the best. I was leaving the life I was comfortable living. That day seems like 100 years ago. This has become our home, and it's where we have roots. It's where our babies were born. So, one thing I know for sure. As tough as this transition may be, I know it will seem like no time before we feel at home once again with new roots starting to grow.

I hope to be back to blogging as soon as we are set up in the new house, and I plan to do a little blog home tour once we are somewhat settled. :) For now, here's a peek at the place we will call home in just a few days!


  1. You are definitely going to be missed, but it sounds like this "difficult" move is for the best! As a side note, if you want to get a Christmas card from us, I would love to send you one! Just send me your new address (I know it's early, but I figured I could go ahead and check).

  2. We are going to miss you and your sweet family so much!

  3. Bittersweet! I wish you & your family the best of luck!

  4. I'm so excited for you guys! Even though I'm not in AR anymore, it does make me a little sad for yall to leave...especially for those there that love you guys! Can't wait to read more about your new lives on the east coast! Congrats!!!
