We’re moving! Next week, we’re packing up and heading westward.
Troy was recruited to a new company that just so happens to be in one of our favorite places in America. Every single time we’ve visited Southern California, we’ve said to each other, “Why don’t we live here?” We can hardly believe that one of our dreams is becoming a reality.
Change is always bittersweet. It’s hard for us to think about leaving our great friends that have become our family. I’m sure that many tears will be shed in the upcoming days as we say goodbye to the only home our four boys have ever known. We’re leaving loads of memories behind as we close the door on this chapter of our lives.
But we’re also thrilled for what lies ahead. Throughout the entire interview and relocation process that has spanned over the last four months, I kept referencing these insightful words:
This move is our “packet of sunlight” in so many ways. Too many things have fallen into place and we feel calm and peaceful about going forward.
It has come as an answer to prayers after some pretty intense trials, not the least of which was Troy’s unsustainable long work hours. We’re looking forward to a better work/life balance and feel incredibly blessed to have been given such an amazing opportunity.
We are happy and excited about the way our lives are headed. It’s a little crazy and we’re okay with that.
Sunny SoCal, here we come.
