We're MOVING!!

Seriously, right now I feel like a toddler on Christmas morning, who just opened up a giant box of confetti and glitter and streamers!! And a puppy was inside too.
-- and that's just from writing the title of this blog post!

 I am THAT overjoyed to share this OFFICIAL news on the blog today!  Two years ago, I started this blog, when John and I began our adventure from Tennessee to North Carolina.  It seems like it was just yesterday!  Now, in just 2 short months, John will be graduating from Duke in May, after completing his MBA, and another adventure is waiting for us just around the corner....





PRINCETON, NJ!

Princeton Winter -- BRRRR!!
Downtown Princeton


 We will be packing up our little apartment in May, and heading north, where John will be working as a Healthcare/Pharmaceutical Consultant for ZS Associates in Princeton. 

Excitement and anxiety are some of the feelings we have right now, but we are 100% confident in the Lord, as He has truly led us straight there.  Some doors were closed, others were cracked, but this one was WIDE open and we could just hear God saying "Come on in!  I have a place for you, a plan for you, and just TRUST me."  So we did!  And we ARE trusting.  It will be a bittersweet move, as we head farther away from family and friends, but we have EACH OTHER, and we grateful for that.

I hope you will continue to follow us, as we embark on this new chapter in our lives.  If you are ever in the NYC/Philadelphia/NJ area, we would LOVE to get together!!  We are just a short train ride from Manhattan -- which I am BEYOND thrilled about!! :) 

So now that the NEWS is out - we have planned an amazing Spring Break road trip to visit our soon-to-be-home!  We are making pit stops in Washington DC, Princeton, and NYC and can't wait to scope out our new neck of the woods. 

I've got some pretty amazing guest-bloggers lined up while we are gone -- so STAY TUNED!   
And thank you for all of you who have been with us on our journey so far.  Your words, encouragement, and prayers have meant so much and we are so very thankful for all of you.

XOXO
Em and John

(Now about that puppy....house-warming gift, honey???)
