Looking back at my last post to what I am about to write as I sit here with my iced coffee and tears in my eyes is... astounding.   Chris and I have been so desperate for the Lord's continued provision, peace, joy and wisdom and I can't help but laugh and shake my head at the very thought of doubting He wouldn't come through.  We set out on this journey a year and a half ago. That is when we decided we were going to sell our sweet little cottage and make the move across the country and settle ourselves in Tennessee.  This whole journey has been amazing and confirmations with every decision that have been made has made it very clear that Tennessee would one day be home. We had our whole "plan" figured out and very quickly caught on that God had other plans in place. There have been so many instances but the most recent one flying back to Tennessee for a job interview that ended up getting postponed and buying our house. (which was not what we had in mind at al

oh, hi there..

It's been so long since I've last posted.  Escrow has closed, we are now homeowners in Franklin, Tennessee! {still can't believe I'm saying that!} Let me say for the record, buying a home across the country and having it remodeled while you're still across the country is...something I probably wouldn't do again! And it's a good thing we don't ever plan on doing again so there's that.  We've contracted a gardener to take care of the land until Chris gets his own riding lawn mower :::Santa has already taken note::: Two of the bathrooms have been remodeled, the wood floors are almost done being re finished and carpet goes in next week! We are doing the rest of the remodel ourselves, because with 3 small kids we obviously have all the extra time. We are literally counting down the days until we get to pack up the truck and say adios to California. We don't have an exact date nailed down but hoping and praying we have a date come next week.
