Yep, you read correctly, we’re on another adventure. After living in the suburbs of Chicagoland for 9.5 months, we are now headed to a different state again.
We Are Moving Again
After selling our home and me moving from Verona, Wisconsin to Plainfield, Illinois last Spring to live with my McSmeetchie (aka JC), JC’s job ended up not working out. So…that left us with our house plans designed and ready to build, and our dream lot sitting on hold until some things got figured out.
It’s been an interesting, challenging and fun season for us. A season of unknown is never easy and wasn’t (especially for my McSmeetchie). Saying goodbye to the burbs of Chicago, which we really ended up liking. Having 9.5 months to sleep in and spend quality time together was an incredible gift. Facing my fear of horses and learning to ride AND stick-and-ball by professional Argentinian polo players – – SAY WHAT?! Not to mention JC playing in his first polo match was something beyond our wildest imagination. Having time to regroup, reflect and reset as a couple. Meeting new friends, having new experiences and learning our way around a new city and state. All of it has made us better people. Fine tuning us more into what God would like – total reliance on Him.
After all this time of JC looking and interviewing, he was finally offered 3 jobs that were in 3 different states. Since we wanted to stay in the Midwest that kept us limited, so we were thrilled that there was more than one possibility. Thank you Jesus!
With all this said, JC has chosen to work for BJC HealthCare in St Louis Missouri, a place we never thought of living, but obviously God did. 😉 We are beyond excited for forward momentum, this great opportunity for JC, a more temperate climate and a lower cost of living.
It’s interesting what can happen when you let go and let God. He takes you places you never dreamed of and gives you opportunities you never imaged. Although not without challenges, but what would faith be without patience, right?
Here’s to another year of moving to a new state. Hoping this is where we’re meant to be for the long hall.
Keep in touch!
As always, shine brightly,
