Big News

No, we aren't having a baby Duncan 
(which is what everyone has guessed when I say, "We've got some news!")

WE ARE MOVING!

T has been given the opportunity to work for his family's business, which means we will be moving to his hometown of Americus in Southwest Georgia 

We feel truly blessed to be given this opportunity -
It's a chance for us to be sooooo much closer to both our families
which is something we've wanted since the moment we got married!


We realize that now is not the best time to sell a house, but we are keeping our fingers crossed!

In the meantime, we will be living at T's parent's lake house!

Our new (temporary) home!
How many people can say they've lived in a pink house before!  
Love it!




This change is something we've prayed about and are so happy about!
Although, it will be stressful to move 
and selling a house
and I don't have a job yet
its the chance for us to live a small town Southern life, which is something we want for ourselves and our future children!
So happy to share the news with all my blog friends!  
Can't wait to keep y'all updated throughout the entire process!
Very excited!

That is so exciting, and such a blessing to be able to move closer to family. Good luck with the job and house hunting. I'm sure it will all work out wonderfully. In the meantime, the pink house looks like a pretty good interim home :)

Congats! One of my best friends from college lives in Jefferson...is that near where you're from? I saw Athens on the map near your hometown and I know that's close.

Michele said...

Okay, I admit that I thought baby! I'll be praying for you as you enter into this time of transition. I know you are thrilled for the opportunity to be closer to family and live in a small town. Thanks for sharing your exciting news. By the way, we're planning a trip to Georgia to visit family this summer, but it's North Georgia not South.

Congrats! My boyfriend lived in Columbus, GA for a few years growing up. Definitely a good small southern town!

I'm super excited for you guys and your pink lake house! However, it was nice to know that I "knew" somebody in Savannah. Now I gotta find somebody else whenever I go there. Boo. : ) But good luck with your move!

Congratulations! and YAY!

I am from Atlanta, GA and even though I am living in Michigan now, I consider it my home. It is the best. I am kind of jealous that you are moving there!!

Congratulations - sounds wonderful! Try not to stress over the house. We sold ours last summer in less than a week and our friends recently sold theirs in Texas to move back here. So, it appears that in parts of the South, the housing market is improving. How fun that you get to reside in a lake house for the time being! Best of luck to you and your hubby!

So happy for you that you know your prayers have been answered. Best wishes selling your house in Savannah...I actually have friends moving back from Arizona to Savannah and will be looking for a house...maybe if you still have my email address, you can let me know the particulars and I will pass them along!! That would be even more exciting!!
