New Adventures

It's been three and a half years since I said good-bye to the life I knew.  Good-bye to friends, family, home and familiarity.  That good-bye meant getting married, moving to a new state, finding a new home and starting a new job.

We didn't know what we were doing, but we figured it out.  We had our first Christmas away from family and even played in a Virginia blizzard.

We made new friends who became more like family

We found an amazing church where we were able to grow in our faith

We lived for beach days....well I did.

And survived our first hurricane

We went to the zoo

We worked a little

And traveled a lot

We learned about life, love and how to be a family.

Now we are back in a familiar, but surprisingly strange place.  It's time to say good-bye so we can welcome the new adventures coming our way.  It's weird to think about leaving Virginia because this is where we grew up.  We became a team here and learned to balance work and home life.  We have so many happy memories and met people who have changed our lives.  We are different then when we started...we are better.

On to Pennsylvania...
We will continue to grow as individuals and as a family.  We will welcome our first baby and reconnect with family.  We will start new jobs, meet new people and have new adventures.  Life will be different, but we will treasure our time in Virginia and the people who have changed our lives forever.
