I think I might have to sit down for this

I have been walking around my house lately just sighing. Big awful sighs, the ones that indicate a sense of overwhelment(maybe not a word). Ones that last like 15 seconds and just roll into another one. I walk from room to room. sighing.

We are moving. To Tennessee. Knoxville to be exact. It's been 2.5 years. House for sale. Lots of snow. Three kids. Crazy dog. Love house. Love school. Love neighborhood. Love family. BIG FAT SIGH.So there it is. Tucked into the rolling hills of Eastern Tennessee is our future home. Are you surprised? I am, or was. I've had lots of time to "wrap" my mind around it. I'm ok. promise.

Most of you reading this know what it's like to move. A lot. I won't go into the exhausting parts because it will take you back to your most recent experience and that wouldn't be very nice of me.

I'm just going to focus on the positive, and luckily there's a lot of it so that is good. Todd is excited about his new job(after being very sad, for a very long time, about his previous one) so that is good. Holden can't wait to move to the Smokey Mountains because there are bears so that is good(?) Asher still wants to be part of this family and is willing to make the move so that is good. Sloan will probably be a big fan of cowboy boots so that is good. I secretly love country music and Paula Dean so that is good. Ok well...that is all the positive I have today. Good night(sigh).

BIG HUGS!!! It will be ok. We too cleaned our house today in preparation for the realtor to visit. We aren't moving far though but the whole process has my stomach in knots.

Being blessed as Madi & I were when you moved to Cincy I have faith that God will open the doors to new friendship for you in TN and I know you will make the best of it. I will keep your family in my prayers.

I wish you and Todd and your boys the best of luck and happiness in your "new" adventures and home!
Todd will be missed very much so by Jacky and myself.
Hope to stay in touch as much as possible.
