For seven years North Carolina has been our home.
We have been stretched and challenged in multiple ways during our time here.
We've become slightly "southernized"(y'all) and our blood has thinned.

We found community.
We were well loved.

…and we are truly going to miss this place.

But, our time here is quickly coming to an end. James accepted a job in the great mitten state. We're excited to do life with family and long time friends, once again.  So while we are ecstatic for what awaits, my heart already mourns for what we're leaving behind (family, friends, community, mild winters, chick-fil-a, & trader joes to name a few :) ).  Yet, in this season of transition…we can see God at work.  His fingerprints are all over this.  There is no doubt that while this is HARD…really hard…it is right where God wants us.

The unknowns are great.
But, good things await…
(and I will learn how to embrace the cold & snow once again!).
