Moving Update

It’s been a month since we moved to Batesville. And I am just so grateful for all of the ways God has taken care of us and provided for us, during this transition. We are absolutely loving it, here. Living in town has so many perks! We are literally 3 minutes from everywhere and it is GLORIOUS!

Jake and I were talking, recently, about where we want to be in the future and we both agreed that we want to stay in town. We love having access to places when we need something, we love the 25 minute drive to Oxford for work, and we love being in the middle of everything going on in town so we can stay involved in our town and get to know people. We truly want to invest in our town. We want to know as many people as possible and form relationships so our future children will be surrounded with community.

Community is so important to us. We want to find a loving church and town. We want to be surrounded with loving friends that will invest in us and point us closer to Christ. Speaking of church and friends, we have been visiting churches and think we have found one that we love. We haven’t tried out the Sunday school class, so  we are going to give it a little bit longer before we are sure it is the church for us.

Our house is almost finished and fully unpacked. I just have to put decorations and pictures on the walls. Don’t worry! I will take pictures and give you an update once I finish. 😉 I’ve never realized how hard it is to make a rental house a home until now. I may also do a post about tips for decorating a rental house. We will see.

 I feel like this post has become a blogging planner, more than a post. Tomorrow is Jake and my’s anniversary and my cousin’s high school graduation. How is he graduating!! Anyways, I won’t be blogging much because of the busyness of our schedule the next few days, but I will be back next week with pictures and fun from our weekend!


Moving Update with a Little Randomness

So if you live in the South, like me, our Spring Break time is more like Winter Break. We have snow is random areas all over the North part of Mississippi and it’s raining randomly. Hopefully that will soon be behind us and it will be sun shining and beautiful on our moving day!! woot-woot!

Anyways, I thought I’d give a little moving progression update and tell you where we are. We found a rental house and will be moving April 1st. We have about half of the kitchen packed and other random parts, of the house, slowly coming together. Thank goodness for family because without them, I don’t know where my head be. My mother-in-law is coming this weekend to help us finish packing, minus work clothes. She is also taking Tucker until we buy a house next year.

Jake and I will be working up until the day before moving day. That means we are having to take care of errands and necessities during our lunch breaks and after work each day. We are trying hard not to spend money until moving day and are eating sandwiches a lot, right now.  We are also trying to not eat all of our groceries, in fridge and freezer, so we don’t have to make a major grocery shopping day right when we get to the new house. i.e. the sandwiches!

We are so thankful for friends that have helped us in major ways. We have had some of you volunteer rolls of packing paper, a covered trailer, and so many other ways. Thank you all so much!

The only thing we have left on our checklist, besides moving day, is to find me a job. As of right now, it looks like I’ll be spending a little longer in Greenville, after Jake moves. We are praying for God’s will in all of this fast pace stuff going on and trying to be optimistic. Hopefully we won’t be separated too long.

And for a little bit of randomness…

Is there anything specific you want me to write or share about? It can be something personal, goofy, or random. I will write about each topic, given, once a week. I can’t wait to hear your suggestions and see what y’all want to read more about!
