Ce n'est qu'un aurevoir...

That means it is only goodbye...

Joseph was hired yesterday! The catch is that we are moving to Houston Texas this week.

It is bitter sweet as we are sooooo excited to have a job again, but are also sad to leave our friends here in Utah. This is really our home. We have felt more home here in the Clearfield 2nd ward than we had in our first 5 years of marriage.

As our mind is filled with all the things we need to get done by Wednesday night (like finding a new place to live, packing our entire house,.....) we are also sad to leave. Clearfield was our home and we loved it with all its quirks and imperfections. We weren't sure we would love Utah, but we found that not withstanding all the bad rep and the "Sunday Mormons" stories there was an incredible amount of awesome people here.

People and friends that love the lord, that are generous and look out for opportunities of service.

Our lives have been greatly blessed by this family of ward members and friends . We have been blessed by being able to serve and love you.

We will miss our Utah friends very much, but we are also excited about the new prospects of a life in the warmth of Houston Texas!

Wish us luck!

(I will not post until this move is over with so forgive the absence...)
