Just minutes before I told Ray that I was pregnant with Timmy, over three years ago, we were discussing many things – looking for a new church, Ray starting his own company, selling our house and moving to Texas…
We decided that too many life changes at one time would be a bit overwhelming. So, we’ve made these life changes over the course of a few years instead.
A short time after Timmy was born we started attending a church that we became more involved in as a family. Timmy was six months old and Ray quit his job and started his own PR company. And now, years after we first talked about it, we’re leaving California and moving to Texas.
Mentally and emotionally we’ve been preparing ourselves for months and now it’s really time… We’re packing up and routing our caravan to Austin. We are all looking forward to this new chapter. It’ll be an adventure, for sure!
The hardest part? Saying goodbye to all of our friends and family. I am so thankful for God’s peace during this time, but it’s still extremely difficult to even think of being so far away.
Although nothing will replace being so close to those we love, it will certainly help having Skype, Facebook, iMessage and FaceTime — the distance between California and Texas will sure be a lot shorter!
