i'm movin' on

well, if you haven't heard already, I'm moving to austin this week! I'm going to be working on staff at hyde park baptist church as student ministry associate. it's definitely a bittersweet time, and it just feels like the end of an era, but I'm excited about this new chapter in my life.

I had one of those "grown-up" feelings today when I bought and paid for a mattress and box springs for my new apartment... my mom said I went pale and looked like I might throw up. the guy offered 2 years of no-interest financing, but that's a dave ramsey no-no, so I paid for it like a big girl. growing up isn't all it's cracked up to be! haha! I finished clearing out my office today, and just moved out all of my furniture. the movers are coming around 8am on wednesday, and then I'm headed out! hard to believe. I've been in dfw for the last 6 1/2 years, and I've been at fbc colleyville for the last 4 years. so much has changed in all of that time, and it's been an amazing journey. I definitely wouldn't be who I am today or headed where I am if it weren't for all of it... the good and the bad. I had dinner with my mom at la hacienda ranch (my favorite!) tonight and it just brought back so many memories of what's probably been about 50 meals there over the last few years. time flies when you're having fun!

anyway, just wanted to put this up here... more updates to come when I get into my new apartment! my cell phone and email are the same for now... let me know if you need them!
