here's to upcoming adventures!

my exciting news wasn't that a stork was visiting (though elaine, i'm so excited one visited your family again! congrats!!!) but that this Texas girl is moving back to my beloved home state! Husband got a job in El Paso and i'm so proud of him.

i'm sad to move away from his family and our charming city that's been home for almost a year now (and to not have thrifting dates with my girl fiancee whenever i want-- how i'll miss her and our antique shop!).

but we'll be closer to my family and that makes me happy! and since my in-laws live in Virginia, i know i'll be seeing Danielle when i come visit-- that also makes me incredibly happy!

husband starts jan. 3rd so you can imagine our casa is upside down in a sea of boxes.

we leave dec. 29th with a stop in Georgia (where his grandparent's still own property outside atlanta) around the same time my kindred soul will be at her mama's for christmas break!

yup--- i can't wait to hug claire! i'd say "meet" but i feel like i've known her forever. I knew her family lived near atlanta but it wasn't until i was mailing her christmas gift to her Mama's house that husband saw i had spelt the name of the city wrong. While he fixed it for me, he said, "baby you know that's only 15 minutes away from the farm right?" 

why didn't i think about that!?!

Claire flies back to San Fran Dec. 30th so it's perfect we will catch each other "in passing." I will be a hot mess from driving but i don't care! she's already invited me to a home cooked southern meal at her Mama's beautiful house and i can not wait!!!

SO VERY EXCITING!!! to meet Claire and for mine and husband's new adventure back in TEXAS.

2011, you're looking beautiful already.

Sounds so exciting and so great to be starting this new adventure with your husband by your side. Have fun dear and I hope this Christmas is extra special for you both (I was hoping on sending you a secret card but didn't have your address). I will be MIA for a week but travel safely and see you in the new year!


Megan said...

Oh my goodness Micaela - How exciting!! I have to admit I was thinking that maybe a baby was on the way. So glad that you finally get to see "Claire" - I am jealous, I would love to meet the both of you in person. Safe travels and a very merry christmas xx

the only thing that has been kepping me from having a complete meltdown when i think about my girl fiancee leaving me is the thought that you have to come back eventually to visit your in-laws. who else is going to talk me into all the things i want at estate specialists?!?!?

love you!

Fritzi Marie said...

I am so excited for you both. If you need a place to stay on the way, our home is your home. We are in Auburn, Alabama...two hours from Atlanta.
love love,

How exciting!! I know how happy you'll be to live close to your family again!!

Texas is so big, is El Paso close to Houston?? I have literally no idea, but I'm hoping to finally make it to Houston to visit one of my best friends this summer and it'd be cool to see you, too!

You already know how I feel about this- am thrilled for you! And that you're going to get to see Claire too is just so, so wonderful! What a great Christmas present that will be!
