I just wanted to give a little life update and as you can see by the title…
There is a long story of how this all came to be and I’ve been sitting here typing it all out and as I was reading back what I wrote, I just felt like it was super long and kind of boring. There has been a lot of emotions rolling around and I was going to put that all in here but thought maybe some of you wouldn’t really want to be bothered by all of that. So, to keep it short, me and Kyle have been praying a lot about this move and I can honestly say that this is a total God thing. Moving to be closer to my family has been something I have dreamed about for years. I’ve lived away from my brother sister practically my whole life and as we have gotten older, we have only grown closer so it has become quite hard to say good-bye to them and my nephews and everyone else.
Not to say that it is going to be easy to say good-bye to Kyle’s family or the two nephews I have down here because that is going to be way hard. For nearly the last 3-4 years, they are who I have depended on and have leaned on, being that the family I lived with or near had to move or we had to move and made it more difficult to spend time with. So, it’s going to be really hard to say bye to them. I am so thankful for the relationships that have been made stronger because of the life events that have happened. I don’t feel like Kyle’s family are just my in-laws, they are truly my family and I love them so much!!
So for those of you that don’t know, we are moving to Oregon. We try to make yearly trips, even if it’s only once a year and we will be trying to do the same to come back to California. We first planned on trying to start our own store up there but sometimes God throws something in your lap that you just have to try. So that is what sort of happened. Kyle worked really hard on his business plan and had things printed out to show a couple of investors and then a job opportunity fell into his lap and we talked about it and felt like it wasn’t going to hurt to try for it. So if he gets it, that will be amazing and a huge relief for our financial stability and if it doesn’t work out then that is okay too. We will continue to try to open our store and of coarse in either situation be praying and asking for guidance. If he does end up getting the job then that will give us a little extra time to put more thought and plan into our store because that is still something we both really want to try to do. It would be awesome for extra income eventually.
The move went from maybe in like 2 years or more, to this year! It’s been crazy how much God has shown us. Everything has been falling into place for the move to happen as soon as it is. It’s funny because last May was the first time we felt like God was telling us that it was going to happen. It wasn’t an “if” anymore, it was a “when” that was the question. The when became maybe September/October of this year to maybe the end of August to April then finally it’s going to happen in May. It’s amazing what you will begin to see when you pray about something and you tell God “I trust you”. Which is exactly what we have been doing and continue to try to do. Sometimes it’s a struggle to let go and trust God but once you are able to it’s so amazing what God shows you.
So lately I’ve just been getting things that we aren’t using that much packed up and going through things and trying to get rid of stuff or donate stuff. It’s kind of hard trying to decide what you will pack up this far ahead of time. I’ve got our bookcases packed and even though I don’t read a whole lot, I’ve been finding that I am in the mood to read. It’s funny how things like that happen. I’ve even got all of my nail polish stuff packed up along with most of my makeup. I left enough out so that if I do need to put makeup on I will have what I need but as far as my collection goes, it’s all packed up! It was so hard deciding what I want to have left out.
So with that said, I do have pics of the last time I did my makeup that I plan on posting on here. I’m just trying to figure out what to call it. I feel like it pretty much looks like my “go to” look since it’s brown eye shadows and nothing crazy. So we will see.
That’s pretty much it for now. Once we are getting closer to the big move I might do another post about it or something. Life is crazy with all the ups and downs and if there is something you are struggling with, the best advise I can give is to pray and keep praying about it. Tell yourself and God that you trust Him. Ask for God to open and close doors and to give you peace about something if the answer is no. God’s plan for you is much better than the plan you have for yourself.
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
