Two years in the making. Waiting. Praying. Thinking it was probably just a far shot, and it's just too hard to reach. Too scary, actually, for so many reasons.
But a few months ago we decided to just step one foot in front of the other, promising ourselves that if God continued to open each door, we'd walk through it. If it was made obvious to us to stop, we'd stop. Step after step, though, the doors continued to open. We walked forward and had an eerie peace about it. It felt like God was laying this out, like it was the right and next step for our little fam.
It's finally to a sure enough place where I can share that we are moving from coast to coast. Yep--we are going to San Diego.
Declan's job is now completely remote. He's been working from his basement office for the last few weeks and it's going great. He's so disciplined and works really well on his own/ from an 'at home' environment. My job is also remote. I can work from anywhere that has a laptop and internet. Our kids are young enough to not completely hate us for dragging them away from their friends and such. They're resilient and adaptable at the ages of 2 & 4. It's a time in our life where we're not tied down to an area based on our careers, and that is so freeing, so very rare, and something we just can't take for granted.
We will miss family like crazy, we will miss friends, but we know that this is our time to do it.
It's time to make that little spark of a dream into a reality.
We'll see you in February, sunny San Diego.
