Some Oh-Em-Gee News

So truth be told I have been keeping a big secret from you, my lovely bloggy friend. For about two months actually. It's not that I haven't wanted to tell you, I have. I actually have attempted to type this post multiple times but the blinking cursor taunted me; or, I wrote a post and ended up deleting it all because I couldn't find the right words. The conclusion I have come to is that I am saying screw it with the whole "right words thing" and I am just going to tell you and fill in all the details in some other posts. Are you good with that?

Alright, here it goes….

Coming July, I will be packing up my whole world and moving to Sydney, Australia.

Yea, that's how I felt when God told me too! {:more about that in another post:}

But over the next few months I will be selling my house, finishing out the year teaching, and heading over to live in the land down unda.

I live in the land somewhere between excited and terrified. The thought of moving my life over there is exciting and adventurous, but when I get caught up in thinking about the details I become terrified.

I traveled over to Sydney almost three years ago and fell in love with it. Who knew three years later I would be back a second time for a whole lot more than a vacation.

So yeah, this is what is going on in my life these days. It's kind of huge. I am sure I left you with some questions about this whole craziness, but check back here and I'll be filling you in on the why and many other details soon!
