We’ve lived in Charleston for just over a month now. I pinch myself everyday when I wake up to palm trees, warm weather, and the ocean (a few miles away). Now that we’re here, it’s hard for me to remember what living in the Midwest was like and how in the world I braved through 26 winters with sub zero temperatures.

I feel at home here. The opportunities that God has given us since we moved have been downright incredible and I have no doubt we are in the exact place we are supposed to be right now. Pretty much everyone who I talk to on a daily basis is shocked or in awe that we packed our kids up (including our 2 1/2 month old) and moved. It was definitely scary, but I know that hopes and dreams are divinely placed within us, and I don’t want to be someone who doesn’t give them room to blossom.

The things we’re hoping for, working towards, and saving for are BIG. Big dreams that are going to take lots of hard work, commitment, and a heck of a lot of God’s blessing, but we’re excited. “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
