It's Been a Year

Yup, that is right, we have lived in North Carolina for a year now. What this means is that we have not lived in Michigan for a year, we have traded in the Big Lake for the mountains, our little brick house on the side of a mountain has become our home, we have added one family member, we are all a year older, and the leaves are changing colors again. We stepped out on faith and we continue to step out on faith...

Faith is what has gotten us this far.

I am more than ready for this valley, this season of our lives, to be over with, I am ready for the future. (I think I have been saying this for a long time now).

Asheville has been good to us. We like it here. It is home (for now until God calls us elsewhere). We miss our family and friends back in Michigan (but we have made some new friends that have become like family), and we miss our old neighborhood with sidewalks and parks on every corner.

This has been the new beginning that we have needed.

I miss you guys, too. It's times like this I praise God for things like blogs and facebook so that we can keep in touch with those we care about but don't get to see...PLEASE keep the pictures and updates coming!

I'm glad you're here! You're move here meant we gained two great new friends (that are like family). And my children made some cute new friends too :) We love you TONS!!!
