I thought I’d do a little update on what’s going on in my life, currently. It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I have a semi good reason as to why. So much has been going on.
It has been 5 months since we’ve moved to Batesville, MS and I can’t tell y’all how much Jake and I have grown to love this little town. When we first moved here, it seemed like so much was going on that we couldn’t just relax and explore our new home. But after about two months of living here, we finally found our groove and was finally able to see what all Batesville has to offer. Something we have done ever since we married, was take weekend drives around town and look at the different neighborhoods and dream about where we would raise our future kiddos. That has come to be one of favorite things to do since moving here. We are preparing to start the home buying process in just a few short months! I can’t wait for that moment to happen and finally have a home of our own.
Another perk since moving is that we live literally three minutes from everywhere in town! And you know what? We love it! That is our favorite part about where we live. Our church is for real 2 minutes and 27 seconds from our house (as long as the stop lights down change to red!). Yes. I’m that crazy person that timed it out. and the grocery store is 45 seconds from our house. 🙂 (I know I’m wierd.)
Moving has been a great thing for us. We close to family if emergencies happen but not close enough that we can just run to them when a problem in our marriage happens. We are 45 minutes away. That means we can still have our privacy. I will vouch and say that that has made us closer to each other. You see. When we lived in Greenville, we were next door to Jake’s grandparents and the rest of his cousins were practically down the road. That means we had all kinds of people to vent to and stay with, when we didn’t agree on things. Now, we are forced to work it out. We have had more in depth talks about the future and our marriage because of this move. I firmly believe God made this happen! We are so much happier because of it.
We have also found a church and last week, we joined and became members! We just love our church! The people are so friendly. The environment is relaxed. And everyone is all about forming relationships and growing the church together! (Answered prayer!)
Some other random things that have happened since moving:
We have started steps to eating healthier meals. (Thank you, Julia!)
We’ve finally made this rental house look more like a home.
We have been trying all of the new places to eat on our date nights! Several have opened since we’ve moved here, on the town’s square.
And we’ve been praying about whether I should make a career change or not. I want to work closer to Batesville for when we have kiddos (one day) and be here if something happens at daycare or school and I need to get to them fast. I also want better working hours and to work doing something I love and don’t come home stressed about all the time. Please keep me in your prayers about this. I appreciate it.
