We thought about it and prayed and thought about it some more.
Matt really enjoys his job out here. He is doing what he wanted to do. But he is gone every night of the week, works every Saturday and we hardly ever see him. He doesn't get paid great money and works way more hours than he gets credit for.
I love being around my parents and siblings, old and new friends.
I love being able to walk to church.
I love being able to walk to Jonah's school.
There are lots of good things about living here.
But, we are moving back to Georgia.
The job offer was too good to not take it. Matt is going to be getting a raise, won't have to work any Saturdays and will be home every night.
We will be surrounded by trees, make more new friends and see our old friends. We will get to see our cousins more.
I just wish it was easier to get from here to there or there to here!!!!
Matt will be heading out there in March and the rest of us will follow at the end of May, when school is out.
I am excited because I truly love living in Georgia but I will miss people and things here too!

Hey, sounds fun right?
I am not really that into music, but This guy is Awesome. Plus he plays in really small venues, so we were right in the front row jamming. Heather has seen him a couple of times and all 8 of us that went last night LOVED it!
We got to meet him after and he signed everybody's shirts and CD's.
The only downside was the fact that the little shack he was playing in had a really cold cement floor and I was wearing extremely thin socks and shoes. My feet were like blocks of ice by the end of the night, but it was pretty much worth it.
If you hear of him, or have a chance to get his cd- do it.
p.s. I finally figured out how to upload a video to my blog post.
THANK YOU JACOB!!!1
you should listen to his song, but first scroll all the way down to the bottom of my blog and pause my music (annoying, i know- sorry!)

Last friday we went in to visit Lar at her house and ran some errands with her.
Ryanne and Savannah love going to visit Lar. First off, because she is a great aunt and super fun to be around, but also because her house is full of fun stuff. Jewelry, stuffed animals, cute clothes, hats, candy, etc. Anything new is fun, right?
Luckily Lar is fun and stylish and she doesn't mind sharing her fab stuff with her nieces.
I say luckily because, sorry, but I am no fashionista. never will be and it is ok with me. I don't really care about clothes or fashion. I still want my girlies to look cute, but when it comes to accessories, i just don't have any. I keep it pretty plain and simple.
The girls were feeling pretty stylish and decided to pose a bit.
On a side note- I am glad to see that I am not the only person that still has a stuffed animal from childhood!

Coming to a city near you with her fabulous horse- Crystal (or Silver, Spirit, Blackie, Princess, Rocky, Meanie- whichever is its identity at the time!)

Heidi assigned me the Letter L
1-Laura Dawn- she is my favorite thing (can I call her a thing?)- that starts with the letter L. Actually, she is the first thing I think of when I see the Letter L. I love Lar because she is the best little sister ever. My mom always tells the story about when Lar was born and I told her to "bring that baby here right now!"- that kinda explains our relationship- I always want Lar to come here right now!
2- Lentils- I love lentils. I love red lentils the most, but any kind really. Lentil soup, lentil wraps and the most delicious red lentil dip I have ever tasted seriously. YUM!
3-Learning- I love learning about new places, things, ideas, foods, people, anything really.
4- Light- I love light. It is my favorite thing, especially this time of year when it can seem so dark and gloomy sometimes. There is nothing better than the bright sun shining down on you. It even makes snow look pretty (Kinda tricky!)
5- Lemons and Limes- I just had to group these two together since they are both citrus fruits and the are seen together alot. They add flavor and zest to everything. They smell amazing and they can do some pretty amazing things. I love it when my hands smell like lemons.
6-Laughter- What is better than hearing laughter or having a good laugh? It always makes you feel good and it spreads very easily. I don't know anyone who doesn't love a good laugh. My favorite is when you laugh so hard you cry.
7-Legs- They get me where I need to go. They are strong and healthy. They can run, jump, dance- basically do whatever I want them to. I am glad they work.
8-Library- Now if you live where I do, take into account this doesn't necessarily mean our local library, we all know why. I do like libraries in general though, even my own personal one, because books are one of my favorite things. I love reading, looking, skimming-whatever- books I love you!
9-Lilacs-One of my favorite smells ever. We used to have these growing all around our house when I was growing up and they are amazing, plus very pretty. The color is nice too.
10-Love- what can I say? I am a sucker for Love. I like feeling love, I like loving other people- Love is basically great all around. It is wonderful to share. I like it when it grows. Yeah, I am a fool for love.
If you want to play the alphabet tag game- leave me a note in the comments and I will assign you a letter!
