goodbye pensacola.

I'm sitting on the floor of our bedroom in our empty house writing my last post from Pensacola. It seems like it was not so long ago that I wrote my first post in this house. We had so many expectations about what our time in Pensacola was going to be like. R thought he'd be headed to advanced training around now, finding out the kind of aircraft he'd be flying. I thought I'd be one year into a good job, ready to keep moving up the ladder. And then most of our plans fell through.

And what's funny is that this year, as we look back at our plans that didn't work out, we can't help but think about the things that did. Like watching our marriage grow as we supported each other through hardship. Or finding a church that blessed us and helped us draw closer to God. And being close to Purdue friends and even a certain nephew, helping us to feel not so far from home. It was a year of watching our plans fall through so that we could see God's plans come to life. And now, as we say good bye to Pensacola, we are eagerly looking forward to the next chapter of our lives in Virgina.

But for today, my only plan is cleaning the small army of dust critters from all the cracks and corners they've been hiding in all year and getting the house ready for our final inspection. Then Thursday morning, bright and early, we're hitting the road.

See you on the East coast!
