Who said I needed change?!

Unfortunately, last Friday was my last day at my beloved elementary school that I've been teaching at for 3 years! Those three years have been filled with a ton of memories and I wish that I could pack up everything about my school - even the building itself and take it with me. Yep, that's right folks, I'm MOVING! Moving down to good ole' AZ. Yes, I'm excited. Yes, I'm nervous. Yes, it's going to be dang hard and yes, I will survive.

I decided to take a leap of faith and go forward with my decision to move down to Arizona after living here in Provo for most of my life. I have loved it! I've been close to my family. I see my parents pretty much every day because among other things, they feed me. I have been working at the best elementary school in the whole world. I have so many great friends who love me and my craziness. But, that is all going to CHANGE.

I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of change, but that is what makes people stronger and keeps people alive. I know I've made the right decision. I know it is the Lord's will that I make this change and I'm not sure what's ahead of me, but I know that whatever happens is for a reason.

So everyone wish me some darn luck. I'll keep you posted as life away from life as I know it takes a turn for the better! AND, don't worry I'm still so seriously single, which means I am totally going to find myself a man down there in those Arizona parts.
