We're Moving On Up...

Today is the day!  Today Dave and I sign the building contract to start construction on our new home here in Franklin, TN.  

While I hate leasing for the most part, it had its comfort in that if we decided to go back home to CA at the end of 16 months, it was no harm no foul.  It would be a costly adventure, but we could return to life as we knew it.  During this whole moving scenario, we have trusted God.  Even during times when it didn't make logical sense-- we trusted and moved forward.  Even when it seemed silly to move all the way to Tennessee when Colorado was waaayyy closer and just as appealing...we moved forward.  And here we are at these crossroads.  Again.  

After a lot of prayer, a few panic attacks, some counsel and a glass or two of good red, we are staking roots in the Volunteer State of Tennessee.  It's really real!

Wish us luck...say a prayer... send cash...(ok, no cash), but definitely say a prayer or two.  This is big, and we think this is where God wants us to be at this moment in time.


  1. Lisa,

    Congratulations on your decision to put down roots. You have a friend or two or fifty here. Give Dave my best. Hope you are enjoying your holiday.


  2. Congrats to you and Dave! I'm excited for you!
