Moving update

I know that several of you are wondering what the heck is going on at my house right now. Me too....:o)
After much deliberation and schedule balancing and soul searching and prayer, I have decided to relocate my family to Arizona. My family is all there so it only makes sense that we go there. It is a bittersweet thing for me because I really love it here! I have made such wonderful friends! If it weren't for my children, I would stay. But, I am a mom, first and fore most and must do what is best for the kids. Don't get me wrong, I will love being close to my family as well. They are wonderful!
Our estimated date of departure is June 18th. That is not written in stone, but more of a goal. The kids have music and scout camps so we are planning to stay for those and then take off. We will hurry to Arizona and try to get our home set up a bit before my oldest daughter comes home. She has been at an adventure camp in Utah for two weeks, trying to work through some of her issues. I am missing her terribly. Talk about tough love..it was the hardest thing in the world for me to send her off, but I really believe it was the best thing for her. She was heading down a path that led to no good. Any prayers you can send her way would be greatly appreciated!
I will keep you all updated as to when we actually depart Florida. Oh, and watch for a big yard sale notification! I have WAY too much stuff in this house! Our new house is a bit smaller so I need to down size a bit.
I will be keeping up with my blog as I go along and hope to be able to share lots more creative art and organizing with you all.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day! Special thanks to all the wonderful people in the service of our country. WE honor you today.

Wishing you well for your big move. It will be quite a difference moving to the desert! :) But, hey you're moving closer to me, so I can't complain. I'll continue to pray for your family during this next step and hope it all goes smoothly for all of you. I get dibs on the Cricut, heeheee! I'm kidding.

Hey Beckie...
Lot's of thoughts and prayers for you and your family as you go through some major life changes. I'm glad you are coming to Arizona. I know your family will be huge support for you. What area are you moving to? I'd love to come to your Stampin' Up classes if you end up in the East Valley! :) Gayle Moore

I will keep you and your daughter in my prayers! I know that had to be very difficult, but sometimes the most difficult things are the best for us!

Good luck on the move and packing bit. I am glad that you will be by your family.
