Back to God's Country!!!
YES!!! WE ARE MOVING BACK TO TEXAS!!! We are so absolutely excited to be coming home and getting back to what we like to refer to as God's Country!!! For those of you who don't know, I moved away from Texas in 2004, right after I graduated from Baylor. I started working for a pharmaceutical company 2 weeks after graduation and they moved me around the country for a little over a year in a "training program" - from Detroit, to Dallas, to Los Angeles. I finally ended up in Atlanta as a permanent location in August 2005. I have been with the same company ever since and have LOVED working for them. It has been very rewarding, fun and stressful all at the same time. Blake moved out to Atlanta in March 2005 to fulfill his dream of living in the Southeast. He has been working for the same insurance company for the past 3 1/2 years.
After missing home and family and friends a lot in the past six months, an opportunity became available for me to stay with the same company I have been working for and transfer to the Dallas market. It was too good of an opportunity to pass up! So after lots of praying, talking, negotiating, and decision-making, the whole thing was finalized and I signed the contract to move us back to Dallas! Blake has been so supportive through this whole process and so graciously stepping down from his job, to explore something new and different in Dallas.
We are so sad to leave some of the best friends we've ever had, here in Georgia! We have had some amazing adventures in the past 4 and half years. We've spent many evenings and dinners with the Camps, several trip to Athens to see the good ole UGA Bulldogs play some serious SEC football, wine tastings, new restaurants, a weekend in the mountains and so much more! They have been great great friends to us. We also are very very sad to leave some of our favorite Baylor alums here as well, the Holloways! We too have shared many days and nights enjoying this beautiful family. Everything from Ellie's birthday party, to concerts, lots and lots of shopping with Cara, homemade margaritas and cookouts! We will miss you dearly, but will come back often to visit and you are ALWAYS welcome in Big D anytime!
For now, we would really appreciate prayers for our upcoming adventure. We are putting our beautiful first home together on the market in January and are really praying that it will sell quickly. We are also praying that Blake will find the perfect job that will challenge him and reward him. We know God has everything in control and we are at completely peace with whatever might happen.
This will all take place very, very quickly... I start my new position on January 5th!!! Which means we will be moving over the Christmas holidays. We are also praying that we can get everything done in the next 2 weeks!! We are trying to do all our Christmas shopping, get the house ready to list, pack and tie up all the loose ends of our current jobs before Dec 23!! Not to mention, spend as much time as possible with our dear friends out here! Please keep us in mind the next couple of weeks and keep us in your prayers! We would greatly appreciate it and are VERY VERY excited to be coming home!!! Love you all!!
