Home Sweet Home

Welp - Here is the most recent update!

First off: After a trip to Jacksonville for a short weekend break filled with furniture shopping, wedding bliss and visits with out of town family - I have signed a lease and officially have a place to stay!

Secondly: I bought my first set of living room furniture, received the knife set I wanted for my birthday, bought adorable accent pillows, and filled my heart with so much excitement that it just might burst!

I have 2 weeks left here in Tallahassee - yet I am already living almost completely out of boxes. Anxious? I think so.

T-minus 13 days til move in.
T-minus 19 days til Europe.

Here Goes Nothin'

So...I've been thinking about doing this for a while - just never actually sat down and done it. But, here I am - blogging.

The past six months have been a whirlwind - to say the least. And even though the year is only halfway through, I feel like I am about to start a new one - actually, it feels like a whole new life.

Nate and I have been together for 2 years, 10 months, and 7 days (not that I have been counting)- and for 4 months and 13 days we lived in the same city. Yeah - I'm pretty over this whole long distance thing. BUT - its official - I am moving back to Jacksonville. HOORAY!!!

I have LOVED my time in Tallahassee, and I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING. I have learned so much - and grown more in the past two years that I ever could have imagined I would. I'm done with school now (praise the Lord), and despite having a full time job that I love (most days) - the time has come to say goodbye to my little home here. I wasn't sure last week - if it was REALLY what I wanted to do, but its amazing how once you make a decision and it's the right one - the Lord has a way of telling you - and boy - did He. :)

Everything is falling into place - just like I knew in my heart it would - and I couldn't be more happy.

Anyway, this is enough for now. I'll update soon. Maybe.

Oh yes. I almost forgot. I leave for Europe in 22 days. AAAHHH!
