We're Moving!

Like the blog subject reads: We're moving!
Remember my blog post about how a New Season was upon us?
Well it is! 

Dreams come true, we are moving to Oregon :)
Where our hearts have been since we started dating.
Where we decided we wanted to raise our family when we had kids.
Where we wanted to buy a house.

It hasn't set in really.
Although we move in 11 days. Yes, 11 days!
I'm in a daze.
Although my house is slowly filling up with boxes and we've been eating on paper plates.
I still can't believe we're about to move to another state.

I haven't really reached the point of excitement yet. 
I just hope I can make it through the day.
Theres so much to pack, photos to finish editing, people to see... so forth.

We already have our apartment. 
That's one less thing to worry about.
I'm not excited about our new place, but its only for a year. 
Or so we think/hope.
Leif really wants to buy a house sooner than later so we're really downsizing.
Our rent in Oregon is more than half of what it is here in California.
Crazy right?!

We told Riley she was going to be living near Grandma and Grandpa J. and everyday she asks
if we're going to our new house yet :)

I'm so thankful that the door was open for Leif to get a new job in Oregon.
I'm thankful that we'll be so close to family, and that the kids will be around their grandparents and aunts.
I'm thankful that I'll get to be surrounded by friends I miss so much.
I'm thankful for the change that will be happening to our family and the new adventures we have ahead of us.
