Yippity Dippity! We have a contract on our house. And if all goes smoothly, we will be outta here in less than a month. Now the big decisions have to be made. We decided to not go too deeply in conversation of whereabouts and when and what until we actually had a contract on our house. We didn't want to get ahead of ourselves.
There are so many options- to rent? to buy? here? downtown? OCC? suburbia? POWERS? alphatater?
I guess when it all comes down to it. I just wish my family were closer. I love our life here in the Springs. The closeness to Josh's family and the community that surrounds us is truly a gift from above. I've never had such deep love from friendships. It would be hard to move from that. In a perfect world, I would move my whole GA family and my dad and his family out here. Oh, and I would move some pools and the ocean right here, too. The Springs fits who Josh and I are. But on the other side of the token, is that where we are called to be? Ugh…I love that we are in this spot- it's exciting. My mind reels throughout the day with options and imaginary journeys our family may take. I so want to make the smart decision for our family. I have to remember that it isn't about me- its about both Josh and I and our family. Sometimes I wish I could just text God and say, “Ok, God, which is the best option.” And then he would reply, “Sweet Kristin, you need to go here.” I guess we will just continue to pray, journal, and process with those wise peeps around us.
