New chapter?

Since our move to Houston, I’ve felt like this has been the start of a completely new chapter of our lives.

We sold our house and moved BACK across the country.  Shane moved to a new position within his company (he’s the most loyal employee EVER – he’s been with his company since after his junior year of college).  We lived in two different apartments and then moved into our new house. The dogs have been happily adjusting to their pocket-sized backyard and shiny wood floors (they slide all over the place when they run around!).

But I was in the same job, working for the team back in Charlotte.  There was a LOT of disconnect after I moved here, not being with the rest of the team.  And I just didn’t feel like I was in the right place at the right time. 

So I’ve been on the hunt for a fabulous new job.  And you guys….



It seems like a perfect fit, like it’s the one I’ve been waiting for.  I still feel like I’m in a dream, like I’m going to wake up and they’ll be all, “Hahahahha, you thought you got this job?! Sucka!!”

I’m not offering any details as to what it is yet, since I don’t start til April 4th. But I just know it’s going to be wonderful. 

Now all of this change is hitting me like a brick wall and feels really really real.  It’s funny because I’ve now lost almost all of the weight (20 lbs, yall) I gained in Charlotte.  Best friend J came to visit from Chicago on her spring break last week and she merely said, “Texas is good for you.”  Texas IS good for me.  It’s my home.  I simply know in my heart we’re going to be so happy here in Houston.  We already are.

Gratuitous picture of Shane at Warrior Dash…he doesn’t look so happy here, but I promise he is!  We had a blast with our friends MA and Jay:

Thanks, Terra – I’m not used to being the girl for whom things work out. We’ll see if it’s all too goo to be true – I hope not!
