Friday was exciting!!


I posted this photo on Instagram late Friday night as a celebration for a few things....

1) Caleb had just finished his FIRST day as a substitute teacher and loved every dang second. He told me it really just confirmed that this is what he wanted to be doing - teaching kids!! I'm pumped for him. He truly has a gift with kids and I know he's going to do amazing things!!! Can't wait to see where his career is heading in just a couple years!

2) We looked at a cute town home in our area after work and absolutely loved it! We asked God ahead of time to make it very clear to us when we walked in if this was the place for us or not - and wow, he really did. We just had a great feeling from the get-go! Caleb and I have been in our apartment since early 2013 and for whatever reason, we just feel compelled to move. Don't get me wrong, our apartment is awesome. It was brand new when we moved into it, and its treated us very well! It's not so much a problem with our physical apartment as it is our management office & increase in rent nearly every 6 months. We've been praying hard about it and this decision just feels right. We'll know more by the end of the day today, but we're SO excited!

The rest of our weekend was good, & I can chat about that another time. Today I just wanted to focus on how exciting the beginning of our weekend was. I can't believe we're moving!

  7. Yay for moving! Yay for a townhouse (we love ours)! That's so funny, because I've felt the opposite. I've had the itch to move, but God has made it clear we need to stay put for awhile. And once we decided to listen, we signed a new lease and they decreased our rent. It's so great when God clearly tells us what to do!

  9. That is SO exciting!! I can't believe y'all's rent increases every 6 months or so. That is crazy! Our apartment just got bought out by another company so I'm hoping our rent doesn't go up too much after our lease is up.
