Excuse me for a minute while I get a little mushy. I don't usually post things like this but since this is sort of my journal, I thought I would do something a little more personal.
Many of you know that my heart will always belong to Utah. That is where I was born and raised. That is where our families are. I love Utah.
Moving here wasn't the easiest thing I have ever done. In fact, it was probably the hardest. Connor was just barely 1 and I just found out I was pregnant. I wasn't sure I was ready to move away and have a life in Arizona. It took some time but after a couple of years (and a lot of tears,) I really bagan to feel comfortable here. Kelly loves his job and he is really good at it. We have wonderful friends, who most, are like us and away from family too. Knowing them has made being away a whole lot easier!
Anyway, a few months ago, Kelly had the opportunity to apply for two agencies in Salt Lake. I got so excited because after 4 years, maybe we could move back home! Well, have you ever had a time in your life where what you want isn't necessarily what is supposed to be? After a chain of events, Kelly and I both know that our time for now is to be spent here. We both had the same feeling a couple of years ago when again, we struggled to know if we should move or not. For some reason we are supposed to be here, and we know by staying, we are doing the right thing.
I will never give up on the idea that we might be able to once again live in Utah. However, I do know that it could be on someone Else's timeline and that is okay with me.
We will continue to look forward to our long summer breaks in Salt Lake and our family visits throughout the year! We will also continue to enjoy our life here and be grateful for the opportunities that await us!
We love you all!
