New Year, New Word, New Me…


2013 has so many amazing things in store that I can’t even begin to fathom all that is to come. As I have done for the past two years, I chose a word to encompass my life for the coming year and I think that the perfect word for this year is Transition. Simply defined, transition means “The process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.”

What does that mean for me and my family? Well, as of right now I know that the transitions I will be facing are a new job and a new home.

Yes, you read that right. I will be starting a new job in the coming weeks and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. I don’t want to share too much yet as I haven’t begun yet but I am over-the-moon excited about the transition into what I will be doing. I am still teaching, I am still working with Special Education students and I think that this job is right up my alley and will be an amazing fit for me.

Now when it comes to a new home, yes we will be moving back to the Dallas area. My new job is located out of North Dallas and we will need to be closer so that I can make the commute as needed. It won’t be daily and I honestly can’t wait to tell you more about it but want to wait until I have officially started. We have been looking for a new place for a few weeks now and hope to have one settled this week. Still waiting to see this one we have been stalking since Friday.

We are planning to keep our farm in East Texas and don’t know quite what will become of it. We are taking the two smallest dogs with us to Dallas (Sookie and Maddy- see below) and then will be finding new homes for Sheldon, Molly and the puppies. We rescued them to be a better home for them and know that it is now time to find a new home for them during this transition in our lives.

I am already feeling beyond blessed with what 2013 has in store for me and I couldn’t be happier.
