Big News

Most of you probably already know at this point, but I felt I should share our news here just in case. M will - finally! - be graduating from seminary on May 14th. He has accepted a job as Assistant Pastor at a church plant in Athens, Georgia. This means that we will be saying goodbye to Colorado, our home for the past six years, and moving back to our Motherland.

When I started this little blog, almost six years ago, we were newlyweds preparing for this exciting, new adventure in Colorado. We had no idea what God had in store for us. In the past six years, we have fallen in love with this wild state, the mountains and plains and wide-open sky. Our girls were born here. We have grown and changed in so many ways during our time in Colorado. It will always be a part of us, no matter where we happen to live.

Obviously, we are sad to say goodbye to our friends and loved ones here, but we are also very excited for what comes next. I have been thinking about what to do with this blog. It very much began as a way for me to keep in touch with family and friends when we moved out to Colorado, but it has come to mean so much more to me over the years. This blog chronicles all of our adventures - from our newlywed days when we were poor as church mice to my pregnancies and the births of our daughters. I have so loved being able to share my heart with you, and I want my children to be able to go back and read this one day, to have a sort of archive of our simple, beautiful life together.

I will do my best to continue to write. Many of you who read this blog are friends we have made while here in Colorado, and I would love to be able to keep in touch with you, even as we move so far away. I'm not sure how often I will be able to post, but this will continue to be the place where I share news and pictures of our family life. If you would like more frequent pictures, you can follow me on Instagram. Thank you for allowing me to share my heart, to be open and honest and vulnerable at times. Thank you for caring enough about us to keep up with our story. It's humbling to be loved so well.

xo, L.
