We're moving back home!

Yes, you read that right, we are moving back to Valdosta!  We are excited to be going back home after being in St. Louis for almost 5 years.  I have to say though, I will miss St. Louis a lot and it will be bittersweet to leave.  I remember when we found out we were moving here and would tell people they would either reply with a confused look and ask why, or told us that we were going to love it!  It was the people that had actually been or lived here that told us that we would love it.  We've had a lot of great memories here, our first place, living downtown, getting Ziva (don't get me started on moving down south with  Ziva., I do feel bad for's the one thing I felt hesitant about moving ), and of course Rose was born here.  I know it will be a pretty big difference from St. Louis to little ole' Valdosta, and sometimes when i think about it i get this knot in my stomach.  Are we making the right choice?  I think so.  I've wanted to move closer to home for a little while.  We may not live in Valdosta for forever, but for right now it's what we want.  My whole family is currently there, and Jeremy's parents and some extend family is there too.  Two of his sisters are in North Georgia.  We have friends there and the ones that moved away do come back to visit every so often.  I want Rose to grow up knowing her family.  I didn't know my extend family very much...we lived in different places.  Jeremy's family had Sunday dinners and always did things for the holidays together.  For us, it just makes sense to be home right now.

We aren't sure of the exact moving day, but sometime in the next 2-3 months.  That's what we've been told it could take for paper work to go through. So until then, we are going to try and soak in everything we can about St. Louis and enjoy the mild summers they have ;)

  1. How exciting! I bet you're thrilled to see old faces once again. Plus, it's good to have Rose familiarize herself with a town you had tons of memories in. I'm sure the move will take a lot of your time, but I do hope you keep us posted one way or another. After all, your adventures have been nothing but delightful. Thanks for sharing that with us and all the best to you and your family! :)
