What We’ve Learned In Our First Year Across The Country!

It is mystifying to me that we have been here for nearly a year already! Ten months ago, I was filled with excitement and eager for a new adventure.  I was positive and cheerful and rearing to cheer my husband on during his new career adventure.  Of course, we were thrilled to settle down and plant roots and bloom where we were being planted.   We were blessed after a whole lot of searching to find a rental in a great…
