He fell in love with a girl from North Dakota.
They packed their bags.. and moved to Arizona.
Sorry.. I couldn't resist the dry cracked desert picture. I'm joking.. the desert can be a very pretty place. Here is a better one.. lol
Anyway – Here’s the scoop. After 13 years of living in the desert southwest, we are moving across country. This has been in the works for quite some time. We started the application process last Oct/November and will be moving to Duluth Minnesota.
Even though I grew up in Fargo, ND – I’ve only been to Duluth one time in my life. It’s cold but probably one of the prettiest cities in Minnesota.
Why are we doing this? Well, we never wanted to raise our kids here in such a large city. The pollution is out of control – the crime is crazy.. and even though the winter weather is nice, it’s just not worth it to us. We want to raise our kids closer to their Grandparents and cousins. With clean air.. green trees and so much more.
And remember back in early February when I was laid off from my job? Now you know another reason why I wasn’t upset at all. It was truly a blessing. I’ve had the time to get things ready to put our house on the market. Cleaning out cluttered closets – making home repairs, etc.
But one sad thing about this whole process – I need to pack up my sewing room and make it a spare bedroom. But – don’t worry. I have a plan to keep my sewing machine at the ready – I will just have to take it out and put it away all the time. So I will still have projects to share with all of you. I have a baby quilt I'm working on that I'll share within the week.
Now a favor – could you all say a few prayers for us? Our house will be going on the market in 2-3 weeks and we are praying for a quick sale so we can join the husband and begin this new adventure!
Here is one last picture of Duluth..
So pretty!!! (Notice I didn't share any winter pictures.. That's cuz I need to ease into that one. I'm still in a bit of denial on the COLD aspect)Pin It
