Hello Sweet Cheer: It's all happening so fast...!


It's all happening so fast...!

Well hello bloggie friends!

     There is so much to update on since I have been so absent from my blog lately.  Things have been steady around here and I haven't quite gotten back on a good writing schedule since Ryan and I have been married.

     Today marks three months since our rehearsal dinner.  It's crazy to think that's it's been a whole three months!  At the same time, it's hard to remember what things were like before we made this life changing covenant.  I am so in love with my husband and I couldn't more grateful to God for answering my prayers.  He is a leader, oh so charming, gentle when I need it, and just so so loving.  I am BEYOND blessed by him.

 He's the hottest sauce I've ever seen ;)

(Side note: Please don't think I'm saying marriage is easy.  It's definitely not.  There are many challenges but none that I wouldn't want to endure for the sake of spiritual and emotional intimacy with my babe)

     So the big news in our life is that we are moving!  In just two weeks we will relocate to the place we feel like the Lord is calling us to.  The place where we feel like the Lord is asking us to put down roots, create community, share the gospel and make disciples!  We are so so thrilled to make this transition to the place where our babies will be born, grow up and come home to when their parents are old and need
'y.  We are thrilled to meet the friends and families who will be influential in the lives of our kiddos.  And the coolest part about it all is while we are taking a risk making this move, the Lord has been providing since the first day we started talking about it.  He has been guiding us and making a way for us through this entire process.  We will know more after this weekend - we're making a trip to solidify jobs and housing.  

     The devastating part about this move is that we can't take our baby girl, Alley, with us.  We have to find her a new home and I am definitely struggling with it.  Ryan is my back bone when it comes to this.  She is just so precious and sweet and I will miss her so so much.  She is a puppy and she needs a yard to play in, a family who can give her better attention than we can and I think she would love being in a family with kiddos.  She is my baby - definitely a momma's girl and I am tearing up just typing this.  

     We had a wonderful Easter weekend!  We made a day trip on Saturday to look for a place to live and then Sunday we worshipped with our Redeemer family - whom we will miss so much.  We will be attending a plant of our church when we move and eventually be a part of a new plant in this new city.  We got to enjoy lunch at Cracker Barrel with friends and then I whipped up my momma's Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas for dinner with Kameron and Sara!

     Speaking of those two... they're engaged!  Ryan and I got to help set everything up for the proposal and we had so much fun.  Kameron was a big part of Ryan proposing to me so it was so great to get to be a part of the day he asked his love to be his wife!  We are so excited for them.

How fun is this?  Friends are just the greatest.

That's all I've got this morning... I've been up since 4:30am and it's almost 6:00am now so it's time to get ready for work.  Let's pray I make it through this day!
