it's been in the works for awhile, but today it became real.
i'm moving. once again. this time not down the road and around the corner, i'm moving 1,607 miles. north east. Brainerd, Minnesota ready or not here i come!
today i sent out invitations to my going away party, i reserved a u-haul trailer, and made a countdown for all the important things happening between now and then. (18 days(approx) until my first "niece" is born, 21 days until i see my man, 30 days until my man is in Bend, 33 days until i get to see my family, 35 days until Thanksgiving, 39 days until i move!)
sometime i sit and say two words to God "Minnesota? Really?". Don't get me wrong, i am SO excited for all that is ahead and my heart is (beyond) peaceful that this is right where God is calling me and asking me to go, but never in a million years would i have guessed Minnesota would be my next landing spot! When i moved to Bend and fell in love with all it had to offer, i thought i had found a place i would call home for many, many years. I love my job(s), i love my church, i love the families who live here and have adopted me as their own, i love my friends, i love 180 and i love what God is doing here! There is only one thing missing... my man.
Right now Dean is called to be apart of an awesome Band (www.silverlinemusic.com) and God has opened a million doors for me to walk through towards Minnesota, so as crazy as it seems, i am ready to go. However...
i am not ready to be a Vikings fan... Go Seahawks!
the "Twins" are my sisters not a baseball team... Mariners, i will always believe in you!
Golden Gopher? are you serious? GO DUCKS!!!!!!!!
St*rbucks is not a coffee shop... how many pounds of Looney Bean Espresso will fit in my u-haul?!
Day trips to Lubbock Texas are fully acceptable and not insane.
Don't make fun of me if you catch me recording video on my new camera... it will be like comfort food someday.
i will always be from the Pacific Northwest and so proud of it.
