Giving up our small apartment to live with my parents in their home has many advantages (backyard, washer & dryer, more space...) but one disadvantage is, it isn't my own home. That is a tough thing to loose once you've had control over your place. I've had many talks about this with my mom and I am so grateful that she understands how I feel.
Moving is bittersweet. I am so ready for the next chapter, for some new adventures (Disneyland!🏰), and for some year round sun.☀️I'm also sad. I'll miss my friends (3 of them hold a very special place in my heart. We've laughed and cried together, we've shared SO much with one another, and we've grown spiritually), I'll miss the homeschool community, I'll miss some amazing women in my ward whom I've learned a ton from, and I'll miss the year round greenery here.🍃 Right now the plan is to come back, but plans change and sometimes they change in an instant. That's where we are at now and I've learned that the more I let Heavenly Father direct my life, the happier I am. So ultimately I look forward to this move with excitement. 😁
We leave on July 6th.🚚(Kevin will actually stay until July 21st to keep working a little longer). So please please please call📞 or message 📱me if you have a moment to say goodbye. (It will help me out a ton if you reach out to me, my mind is on packing and finding free boxes📦.) I really am going to miss the life we've built here. Oregon 🌲and all of the people here will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart. 💚
