Hazel turned Two! We did these instead of cake.
She's balloon crazy. Daddy did good!
Hazel on her birthday. She woke up sick and we ended up in the er with a very high temp for many hours of the night. We've spent the last two weeks trying to make up for that. Poor girl.

So where in the world have I been? Good question! I feel like the last few weeks have been crazy for our family and I haven't had much time to visit this space like I would have liked. I'm here now though, even if it's just for a quick hello.

See two weeks ago, today actually, my husband gave his two weeks notice at his job here in California. Today is his last official day. If you've been around here for a bit you know we moved to CA about a year ago for this job of his and the adjustment has been really hard on our entire family. After much deliberation we decided the best thing for our family was to move back "home" and be a part of the lives of the people we love the most again. We don't regret this move to CA in the least. We all learned so much about ourselves and each other while being here. It was an amazing opportunity for us and one that has changed our lives forever.

Now the next season is about to begin and we couldn't be more excited about it. Here are the details in short. We are moving from San Fransisco CA to Texas. Near Dallas. Our plans are very loose at the moment. We have family there that we will move in with to begin with and then we'll get a house at some point. John doesn't have another job yet but we aren't worried about it. God will honor his commitment to our family and give him favor with the right people. It's sometimes hard to not feel overwhelmed by the lack of a solid plan for the future but thankfully John and I haven't been feeling those feelings at the same time yet. When one is weak, the other is strong and so on. That's what marriage is all about, isn't it?

Anyways, in four days our lives will change again. We are currently surrounded by boxes, packing tape, paper, bubble wrap. The house is a mess and the cat is getting nervous. Saying goodbye to this place and the people we came out here with will be hard but we all know it's for the best. We will miss you all more than we can say. If you are ever in Texas, stop by. You are ALWAYS welcome.
So next time you hear from me, I'll be in a new state, a new house, with new stuff to talk about. Thanks for stickin with me. I'll be back soon!
Until Then, nm
