So remember last week I was telling you about a new design client "the renter"? Well that "renter" happens to be us. We are moving! It was really a last minute decision guided by the hand of God through and through. We just put our home on the renters market and will be renting another from a good friend. That friend is also allowing us to make improvements to the home since the last renters may not have loved it all that well. The new home is still in the birmingham area just a new a new city. What spurred on this sudden change? I believe I have mentioned before that KJ has learning difficulties in the reading/spelling/anything word related area. The private school in which they tended, that we love dearly, does not have the extra resources to help him. It just got to the point where other kids were noticing that he could not read and the last thing I want to do is crush his little spirit. This new home happens to be in the school district that has the most wonderful resources to help kids who may be lacking in certain areas. At first the idea of change sent shivers down my spine and tears down my face. I am leaving my comfort zone. The place where we have pretty much have raised our children during their little years. The worst part though is my bestest friend, you know the kind of friend that knows every awful thing about you yet somehow loves you anyway, happens to be walking distance from our current home. Can't tell you how many laughs, crying sessions, and the like we have had on her porch. After much prayer I realize that this short distance will not alter our friendship in any way. Besides KJ and their little girl have been saying they are going to marry each other since they were three. You do marry your best friend after all. Now I am finally full of excitement and adventure! A new house to tackle which also happens to be a dream home of sorts for me. Plus we will be in an area where we can walk to school, shops, and restaurants. It even has one fabulous library. Whew, so happy I could share with you all now. I just didn't want to mention it till all our ducks were in a row. Now I have less than a month to pack and sell just about everything we own. Did I mention we are downsizing? HA.
