Today is the Day!!
We are officially headed West this morning! A brand new journey and phase in life awaits us! :) We are super-duper excited and we look forward to seeing parts of this great country, we've never seen before! Brian's family is on the West coast, so this will be great for our family - to be closer to them! We hope to take pictures along the way to share with you! I will do my best to check in on Facebook (I can't make that promise though!) during the evening hours and see how y'all are doing and let you know how we are doing! If you're interested in following along, you can find my Facebook page HERE. We have 4 long days of driving ahead of us ... and we pray that the weather is cooperative! I'll be waving at some of my bloggy friends as we drive through their states! :) Our first "final destination" is gramma's house in California .... so Brian and I can have a much needed break and some alone time! ;) We will be driving almost coast to coast!
North Carolina has been our home for a few years now. Although we don't really like it here, it does have some very good memories. I hate to admit that there will be things I will miss ....... the beach - I will miss it terribly. Sweet tea .... y'all know how Southerner's like their sweet tea - I'm guessing people in Arizona just don't drink that stuff - they'll probably offer me un-sweet tea with sugar packets .... Hello? That's just crunchy un-sweet tea! Believe it or not, Eastern NC has some good BBQ too - I'll miss that. I will miss the hilariousness of people buying out all the milk, eggs and bread at the grocery store for the threat of a "dusting" of snow. (I wish I was joking! They really do!)
Although North Carolina has been our home .... it has never felt like home. As our time here ends, God has opened doors for us in another place!
If you have a minute to pray for us - for safe travels and good weather, our family would certainly appreciate it! :)
