One year later...

Monday, March 5, 2012

Exactly one year ago Chris & I began our new lives here in Virginia Beach.  (I seriously cannot believe its been a year! Wow)   Chris received a new job opportunity in the area, so away we moved from our home state of good ol' North Carolina, and made our way across the state line to Virginia.  Anyone who knows me well, knows I am truly a creature of habit, uncomfortable in chaos, & change is mostly an unwelcome friend.  So this move was absolutely the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life.  But here I sit a year later, and I can honestly say we made the right decision in moving here.  Looking back on this year, there have been definite good times, as well as, not so good times.   Some days were really really hard.  I wanted to move back.  I'm glad I can honestly say that in past tense now.  I have learned so much about myself through this experience and I can proudly say I have become a stronger woman for it.  There are still hard days, but I think that's normal, it has only been a year.  But Virginia is our home, and we are happy it is.  I am truly excited about the future and what it holds for Chris & I.

So thank you Chris, for comforting me as well as putting up with me this year.  You are a trooper, a wonderful husband & friend, who I would be lost without.  Thank you to my family & friends(old & new) who have been by our side during this crazy journey.  And ultimately without my Heavenly Father, I would be nowhere; He is my peace that passes all understanding, my refuge & strength, and my ever present help in trouble.  

What will this next year bring I wonder?  I can't wait to find out...

  1. So proud of you! I know it cannot be easy leaving everything you know and love. I might be facing the same thing soon (prayerfully, if I ever get a job) and you are a true inspiration!
