Now that I am officially headed back to Central Standard Time, people are starting to ask what I think about moving back to the South. While there is a part of me that's sad to leave Michigan, I really am looking forward to a new beginning.
Our time here in Michigan has brought us so many new experiences - good and bad. We have learned so many different things about ourselves, our relationship, friendship, money, our faith, etc. We also have lived through actual winters. I'll admit that I'm usually crying uncle by February 1 at 12:01am, but either way, I'll definitely miss winter.
We have learned that having our own space has been good for us, but we also have learned that being close to family is VERY important to us. I think God heard us on that when he brought about this Arkansas opportunity in the first place.
I've started to scout out doctors and hair stylists and churches. I'm letting myself look forward to things like good Mexican and Sonic and Chick-Fil-A again. Living without those things these past few years have not been lost on me. I'll have to reign myself in the first few months I'm back so as to not gain a ton of weight.
And this new beginning has lots of promise. I'll admit though, I'm a hard sell. I mean I've lived in Oklahoma and Michigan for crying out loud. And while some people might not consider those great states, they have clearly never lived in either place.
Either way, I'm ready. Hopefully Arkansas is ready too.
