2 Year Idaho-versary

2 years ago today, we shut and locked the door to our house in Provo for the last time. Through a veil of tears and trepidation I bid farewell to the first home we had paid a mortgage on and headed North to a new life in Idaho. So many new things lay before us. So many new places to explore and adventures to be had.

2 years ago when we moved up here on Memorial Day weekend the weather was horribly cold and rainy. A bleak welcome to the place we would begin to call home. For the past 3 days as I cursed the cold, dreary rain, it never dawned on me until this morning that it mimicked the weather conditions two years ago.

2 years ago we looked forward to new jobs, a new house and the new baby we would welcome in the coming months.

2 years ago we were unsure of what the future held. But we hoped it would hold great promise and joy. Although we've had our bumpy days, it's turned out so much better that we could ever imagine.

2 years from now...who knows where we'll be. My hope is still in Idaho--loving life and the wonderful things that we have been given.

I can't believe it's been two whole years! I have to admit my heart is a little sad to see in writing that your two-year plan doesn't include moving back this way, but I know Idaho is where you belong. :)

May the next two years bring as many happy memories and surprises as the last two.
