It was scary to step out into the unknown and move to Alaska.
We had a job lined up for Geoff but other than that we didn't know anything. We didn't even have place to live!
But now that we're here we love it so much I don't think you're going to get us to leave! (sorry mom!)
There are times though that I wish I were back in FL.
Those times are when the people I love are hurting and I want to be there for them.
Like the time my friends baby is sick and there's nothing I can do from so far away.
Or like this past week when my Grandpa passed away.
I just want to hug my Grammy and tell her I love her.

My Aunt posted a video on her blog of Grammy today. I love hearing her laugh.
It's also hard to be away when my family and friends are rejoicing. Just yesterday I found out that a wonderful family from our church in Florida is adopting a baby boy. I am so excited for them and would love to be there to experience and celebrate it with them.
I will just keep praying and rejoicing with you all from afar!
