Ready or not…the west coast beckons

Well, it is official. The huz and I are moving to San Francisco.

We leave next week for a house hunting trip…kinda crazy.

We mainly cannot believe it is finally happening. After thinking we were going to move a year ago, here we are, actually moving! It has been hard letting people here in DC know, and exciting letting our friends and family on the west coast know. Obviously, I don’t know how I feel about it all just yet.

___________________

What I do know is:

I am excited for this next adventure.

I am not excited about finding a new job.

I am going to LOVE the weather.

I am going to miss my friends.

I cannot wait to explore the redwood forests.

I did not get a chance to explore every inch of DC like I had planned.

I know that this is what God wants for us

I am excited to be a short plane ride from my parents.

I am sad to leave my sister in DC.

I am VERY excited about wine tastings in Napa Valley.

I am feeling queasy thinking about the need to find a new church.

I know that all adventures with the huz are so incredibly fun and exciting.

I know that God is in control and knows exactly why we are moving.

And that is why I am excited, more than anything else.

So, here we go! Next stop, house hunting trip… (here comes that queasy feeling again…San Fran is so dang expensive!).

love,

sam

  1. Amen to all you are feeling… I am excited for what God has for you… sad for the distance it will put between us… and “knowing” the high cost of living over there… I am entrusting you into His hands – as you continue in His Will, knowing that He is above all… and is able to make a way for you. We miss you all ready…there is a pain in my chest right now even as I think about it… but I trust in the One who is leading you…
    Love you both so much! Can’t wait to see you at Thanksgiving!
