Lots going on in our little lives. Jack and I will be moving to Easton, PA in 6 weeks. WOW. I am really going to miss St. Louis -I love my job and have great friends here, but alas - love has called. I have just let my work know in the past week and now am on the hunt for jobs in Easton (hint hint - if any of you have connections). I am very ready to begin a new life with a fresh start. We will soak up our last weeks here -dining with friends, playing in the pool and trying to eat at every restaurant we love in the city. Froyo - Chavas- PI - Ted Drewe's - Mi Ranchito - the list goes on. When I moved here I was a very uncertain, self conscious 20 something. I couldn't be more different. The big city has toughened me up. So much has happened since I moved here. I have grown and changed a lot. This city has brought both incredible joy and incredible pain. We start a new journey and though sad to leave, I am thrilled to begin new. Friends I have made here will continue - I could never replace them nor let them go..they are family now - stuck with us forever. Lots of newness coming our way - new friends, new city, new house, new job, new therapists, new doctors, etc - things to completely overwhelm me when I think of them, but I know they are all very good. And love waits for us in Easton. And so we go. Jack will most likely learn to walk there and run and play sports in that small town - he will learn what cows and horses are - and most likely won't hear many gun shots. My favorite part is that Jack will have a brother and a wonderful man for a dad who is already crazy about him - tears roll even as I type those words. God has been gracious to us - very very gracious. It will all be good - I am certain of that. Wish us luck and keep us in your thoughts as we pack (hate!) and adjust to lots of change.
