When I first started this blog, I intended on it being a place where I could (honestly) jot down my thoughts.
Well, the problem with that is, as more people start reading... the less revealing a blog can be.
For privacy's sake, etc.
If I had kept it "real"... then you would probably know that we were not exactly crazy about living here.
You would also know that we missed our friends... a lot.
And... you would think I was a big baby and a whiner.
But, the truth is... this past year has been a little hard on me. Moving to a new place with no friends and a 6 week old baby isn't exactly easy.

That being said, I still thank my lucky stars for everything that I have. We are so fortunate.
We have a wonderful family and a wonderful life-- nothing can change that-- even where we live.
Reed and I are thankful for so many things-- especially our relationship and (in my opinion) perfect child.
But... we just didn't like living here.

We still love the beach (who doesn't?), and will continue to vacation here.
We just don't want to live here year round. Does that make sense?
I really hope I am not offending anyone...
I didn't enjoy driving 30 plus (and even more during the season) minutes to make a deposit or shop at Target.

Believe it or not, after all of that rambling, I actually have some news to share...
Our family is moving, yet again.

We have great friends there, and are more than excited to be returning to Alabama. Reed will be starting his new job on May 3rd. Let's just say I will be more than busy between now and then.

We sincerely hope that this is our last and final move... and cannot wait to see what the future holds.

Beach peeps, we will miss you!

More details later...

Montgomery? What a surprise!! I am so excited for ya'll to get here and for me to get to meet more of your "Gump" friends that I have heard so much about! Plus since you know I have such fantastic babysitting skills...I am sure you are thrilled to know you can leave Chappell with Riley and I anytime.

CONGRATULATIONS! That's very exciting news!

Congrats on the exciting news! John and I were just talking the other day about moving (not that we're planning it, we were just talking about it in general), and I was saying that I didn't think I could move some place where I didn't have friends. That would be so hard! So I know y'all will be very excited to be closer to yours!
