Today is the Day!

Gavin and I leave for our drive across the country today! We have to get the last of the car packed up this morning, and then we will be on our way!

Yesterday the movers came and all of our packed up stuff got put on a truck. It really hit me at that point that this is all really happening and we are moving across the country. I know it might seem a little silly that it didn't really hit me until our stuff was on a moving truck, but I guess it is taking a while to sink in.

We are taking 4 days to drive to Nashville and feel extremely blessed that we are going to be able to stay with family all along the way. I am so excited to see parts of the country that I have never seen before like Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon!

This was the view out of the window I was sitting by this morning, the sunrise here in Oakdale this morning. I thought it was appropriate since we are headed that direction. I feel like I have a ball of energy inside my stomach full of excitement, nervousness and a whole list of other emotions! Thats all for now, I have to go finish packing the car! I will try to keep this updated as we make our way across the country!

New Town, New Adventure

We are moving to Nashville!!!!!!

Gavin got offered a position with Jackson National last Friday and accepted! Originally he had interviewed for this same position in Denver, but there were not openings in the program there and the company was not sure when it would open up. However, they told Gavin there was the same position currently open and hiring in Nashville, TN. He applied the next day, had a phone interview a week later and was offered the position during the phone interview. It was so quick it almost took me by surprise!

We have never been to Nashville, but are excited to see what God has in store for us there. Gavin starts the 24th of October (a week from Wednesday!!) so we are leaving either the 18th or 19th to drive across the country. We are super excited to drive across the country and see a lot of the United States we have never seen before. We will be driving through Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Missouri, and lastly Tennessee.

Once we get to Nashville we will go look at apartments that we have been doing research on and looking at online.

We are so excited about all the changes that are headed our way! I will be updating this blog all along the way, so check back every couple of days to read about our new adventure!
