obligatory new year blog post...

Out with the old, in with the new! Packing up the old house.

I haven't had much time to sit and write (what, with moving and all) but I did want to write some about the excitement of leaving 2012 and moving on to 2013.

In 2012, Husband and I had just moved to a new place for a fresh new start. We knew it would only be for a year and once he finished school, we would be off again. It was perfect for us to escape our past and a lot of baggage. Sort of like a big "time out." We desperately needed it.

That brings us to 2013.

Here we are, just moved again.
This time in a whole new state.
And this time, for good.
(at least until God moves us again...but we are hoping that's down, down, down the road.)

We have only been living in the grand state of Tennessee for a few days, but they have been magical.
God has really been putting things together and we couldn't feel more blessed.
I'm writing to you, sitting in our (new to us) rental home.
It is not moldy, over 100 years old, or infested with cockroaches.
(Unlike the last 2 houses we lived in.)
It's so perfect and I have loooooved unpacking and making it into our little space of this world.

For those of you who don't know, my husband is a youth pastor.
We have fallen in love with our new church, his new place of employment.
I mean, you guys have gone above and beyond to make us feel welcomed.
We had about 15 people over at the house to help us unload and got in done in an hour!
And we had a blast last night, bringing in the new year with 3 other couples.
So great.

So, this isn't a normal "looking over the last year" post.
Partly because I waited until the last minute.
Partly because I'm about to leave and go out on an adventure with one of my old college roommates
(woo hoo...someone I know!)
And partly because I didn't want to.

So there you have it.

We are no longer there.
Goodbye, 2012.

We are here.
Hello, 2013.

P.S. I will be back soon with some picture updates about our move and house.
