Yep, we are moving back to the Houston area!
I have to be honest and say that it is truly bittersweet.
Of course, Houston and Texas are home and we love being there; family is there and we have roots around the city.
However, I have not lived in that area in 8 years now so no matter where we were to move, we would be starting over as far as friends go. Luckily, I am not the type of person where this scares me, so I have no fear that we are going to be just as happy there as we are here.
Don't get me wrong, we are very excited and I know that Jeff is thrilled about this new position he will be taking at work, but I can't help but be sad to leave so many wonderful friends.
It took me a while to get used to the idea of living in Louisiana when we got married, maybe because I didnt really have much of a choice in the matter. But, as my dad always says, I tried to live by the motto "bloom where you're planted." I have really grown to love it here and the people. It's much different than Texas, but different can be good.
I know we will make numerous trips back to the area to visit. After all, it's just Houston not across the world, or something! lol
Anyways, it's been pretty crazy around here as you can tell by the lack of posts. I've been feeling the rush to try and finish projects before Norah gets here and try to get this place even more organized and ready to show. We hope to put the house on the market next week and we are leaving today to go see houses in Kingwood. I am praying that Norah will stay put through the weekend!! It is a pretty hairy process that you have to go through with a corporate move so it may be a few months before we are settled in a new place but Jeff starts the new job Sept. 1st so hopefully we dont have to do too much temporary living.
I'll try to keep everyone posted on here and of course, you will know when Norah gets here! :)
