It started to rain just as we were eating dinner. I love the rain...maybe because here in Colorado we don't have rainy days very often. I love the way it smells and how the earth feels fresh again. I leaned my head against the partially open screen door and felt the cool breeze against my face as I breathed deeply in and out. I closed my eyes and for the first time in almost seven years I felt a calm wash over my body.
We are moving home!
This morning I accepted a job offer to teach in my hometown! It's been an overwhelming month of interviews and even a second job offer. We have wanted this for so so long that I can't actually seem to wrap my mind around the fact that it is happening. I know now that this is the right time. I needed to work towards this moment...to earn it so that I could appreciate it every single day. I wouldn't change the past six years for anything, especially if it meant I could have my dream job today.
I'm excited to document this time. This will be an extra busy season in our lives- wrapping up the school year here, packing up my classroom and our apartment. I know this can be a stressful time, but I'm trying to hold onto the fact that this is a good stress to have.
So for now, we are clinking our champagne glasses and celebrating! Life is good!
