We Moved!

That's right, we have officially MOVED! After going to college in Ohio for four years, here we are again! I honestly can't believe that I'm saying this, but we did it. Sorry for not having shared this with you all sooner, but both Jordan and I just wanted to make sure this move actually happened before we shared it with the whole world. However, now that it officially happened I can finally talk about it :) 

The whole reason why we moved to Nashville was so Jordan could pursue a specific job in the music industry. We were excited about living somewhere other than the East Coast even though we knew it was going to be a HUGE adjustment. After waiting 5 months for this job to start, Jordan began to realize that it wasn't going to be happening any time soon. Being the amazing husband and man of God that he is, he knew that he needed to do what was best for “us” and if that meant moving to find another job somewhere else, than that’s what he was going to do. My heart broke for him because I knew how badly he wanted this job, and I hated having to watch him leave dream job.

So after lots of prayer and advice from our families, we made the tough decision to pursue jobs and a new life somewhere other than Nashville. It wasn't long after we made this decision that some great job opportunities opened up for Jordan in Ohio. It was amazing how we felt like God was telling us this move was something that we needed to do. He has opened up so many doors for us, and is continuing to each day. 

Currently we are staying with Jordan's oldest brother with his wife and our adorable little nephew until we find a place of our own. We would really appreciate if you could pray for us, not only because we literally packed up our whole lives with a few short weeks, but also that I would find a job, and that we would find a place to live.

I seriously can't believe we don't live in Nashville anymore. Don't get me wrong, Ohio is definitely not the most exciting state to live in, but I can honestly tell you that Jordan and I were SO excited about moving here and being close to our family and friends. Knowing that I'm with my best friend through it all, is truly all I need. I'll post more details about our move, as well as life in Nashville and life here in Ohio soon. I just wanted to update you all on our lives and explain why I've been missing from the blogging world!

Oh and I'm totally having anxiety about what to re-name my blog to, since we no longer live in Nashville! This time I’ll be sure to leave where I live out of the title!

{I love this verse, such a great reminder}

Well Ohio...here we are! It's so nice to see you again :)
