Here we are.
We knew this day would come. Didn’t think it would happen when it did, but I’ve learned nothing is ever in Becki time.
We moved to Washington.
We left Redding, California and moved on our anniversary, which is ironic, because Jon and I met in Redding. And here we were leaving this city with our 4 week old son…9 years later.
Bellingham, Washington. The weather and scenery have been beautiful. The smell of fires mixed with wet pine trees screams winter in the Pacific Northwest. And I love it.
Choosing to leave Redding was one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make and driving away knowing our time there was finished was one of the hardest moments. We left behind memories and a community of people that we will cherish for a lifetime. And we’re not done with you yet!
As I sit here, I can’t help but think how incredible blessed we have been the last 7 years of marriage. Our needs (and wants!) have been fulfilled even when not deserved. We are so grateful the Lord provided an opportunity for me to be a stay at home mom to our Reed and for Jon to continue doing for a living what he loves most: working with students.
Redding. We miss you. Tremendously.
Bellingham. We already love you. And our future with you will be incredible!
