I’ve been ready to burst with our exciting announcement for what feels like forever, but in reality we’ve only known a few days and things are moving at lightning speed!
Can you guess what our announcement is?
Maybe a peek at the blog’s new header will help?
Bumpadabum! Yep! We’re moving to Alaska!
I am super-proud of my husband who will be the new Library Director in Juneau!
He begins work at the end of February, which means we have NOTVERYMUCH time to pack up, sell our house, and move out there! But more details in a minute. First, a few photos from our trip to Juneau earlier this month:
I couldn’t help but laugh every time I stepped outside and looked around. It’s almost too magnificent to be real! Only our God…
“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
And marked off the heavens by the span,
And calculated the dust of the earth by the measure,
And weighed the mountains in a balance
And the hills in a pair of scales?…
To whom then will you liken God?
Or what likeness will you compare with Him?”
Our trip was wonderful, the people were so much fun, and the city of Juneau is perfect! We will be nestled between mountain and ocean, kept warm by the water and kept cool by the Northern latitude.
We really are excited! But before we can settle in, there are some big things to tackle!
Like packing up everything we own and living out of suitcases for 30 days until it arrives in Alaska.
And like selling our home in a neighborhood where most houses spend at least 6 months on the market.
And then there’s this:
Our trip from Kansas City will take nearly 10 days! We’ll be driving to Bellingham, WA via Denver and Montana (where we have family) to catch the ferry to Juneau that only leaves on Fridays. All of this means we will be leaving Kansas City on February 10th.
Less than a month from now! It’s enough to make me lose sleep! But it’s ok, because soon we’ll be here: (doesn’t it look peaceful??)
