lots of changes since i last posted. it's been a whirlwhind few months for us, so i will try to back it up a bit.

|these two were amazing on our drive. seriously, SO good.|
|this child...not so much.|
it wasn't an easy decision. in fact, just looking at these pictures of our house on the morning we left makes me ache a little. we left a really, really good thing in austin. we left a city that we love, family and friends that felt like family. i left this incredibly unique situation of literally being surrounded by friends with kids the same age as mine. but, at the same time, we truly felt we were making the right decision for our family. obviously, there is a lot of emotion that goes along with making a decision to move from a place that has been home for so long, so i really had to pull back from the emotion and look at the practical side of it all. i had to keep reminding myself that just because something is the good and right decision, doesn't mean that it won't be hard at times too.
i'm still reminding myself of that 3 weeks in.
