It has been a long and emotionally exhausting few days. We left Texas on Friday and made the 12 1/2 hour drive to my hometown in Alabama. We spent the night with my family and Saturday headed to Tennessee. I decided yesterday that Texas has the best roads anywhere in the united states. I know that is saying a lot. I guess I'll trade the beauty of north Alabama and east Tennessee for the roads any day. I never had any doubt about moving but the logistics of it all took some of the fun away. The stress and nervousness slowly drifted away as I drove through the Tennessee mountains while listening go Coldplay's 'Strawberry Swing'. I knew then that it was all going to be worth it.
Saturday night we started our time here with a celebration. We had dinner with old and new friends in Chattanooga at the Terminal. After that, we sat at a yogurt place by the river to watch fireworks from the Riverbend music festival going on. I don't think we could have started our time here any better.

Today Matthew started his new job. This means I am supposed to be looking for a job. So, today that it's what I am doing. Drinking a coconut latte, doing a little job searching, maybe go on a bike ride (j has a path right in front of her house), and spending much needed time with the Lord.

Matthew said about a year ago that he didn't want to be in Texas very long. I can say that he is a man of his word and didn't waste anytime getting out. So, Matthew I am so proud of you, we did it.
We are spending the 1st week & 1/2 with my best friend until we can move into our house. My wardrobe has now increased greatly. Thanks j ;) Hooray for new beginnings.
Ps. Yesterday was our 6 month anniversary. I cannot believe it has been that long.

'I remember we were walking up to strawberry swing, I can't wait 'til the morning, Wouldn't wanna change a thing, People moving all the time inside a perfectly straight line, Don't you wanna just curve away, When it's such It's such a perfect day, It's such a perfect day. Now the sky could be blue, I don't mind, Without you it's a waste of time, Could be blue I don't mind, Without you it's a waste of time.' -coldplay
