Moving.


When I mentioned it was a crazy week last week, this is one of the reasons why...
My husband accepted a job in Atlanta, and we are moving our little family from KS back to GA next month! Mixed emotions come with this move. Atlanta feels like home to us since it is where we got married and had our first child, and made many good friends....so we are excited to be back again. However, it is very difficult to leave my sister and her family:( We are very close to them and have loved having them as such a big part of our lives in the last few years.

But every chapter in life brings both trials and blessings. I am thankful for both these last few years, and looking forward to the next chapter and what it will bring!

  11. Saying goodbye to a city you've become comfortable in is always tough. I just did it a few short months ago, and know full well how you feel. Just keep looking forward rather than back! It will be great fun to return to a city you have already once considered home!

    Congratulations, Anna!

  27. What a positive attitude. I have always lived in the same state, so it would feel very strange to move away. I would have mixed emotions as well.

  48. Moving is always a HUGE event, no matter how much you love the place you are moving to! And I would be very sad about leaving my sister, too...but sounds like it is a good move and QUICK! Holy Hannah! But I think quick moves are better anyways, no time for procrastination! (c: Congrats on the new job!
