In April 2015, we loaded a big Uhaul truck, our 3 amazing kids, plus a dog and headed to the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Leaving the warmth of Austin Texas, our precious family, dear friends and amazing church was a challenge. Goodbyes are never easy. However, I have learned that sometimes God smiles down at us. He allows our paths to constantly cross with old friends and gives some new friends who will be as dear as the old ones. Life is filled with many adventures. Lots of hills, some valleys but always a purpose. So y’all, this is me. Finding the joy in the mess, the hope in the sorrow and a box full of laughs.
