Heading east

Processed with VSCOcam with k2 presetWe said goodbye to Dallas and drove away a few days ago. I always knew that life with Travis Lacy would be an adventure, but I did not expect that to mean moving again ten months into marriage. However, we are thrilled to be heading east to Durham and to Duke. I feel like I am going home as the green hills and forests of the east feel like old friends.

In a month or two, I think I will be able to look back on our time in Dallas and this time of new transitions and actually think through all of it. But for now it feels like we are caught in a whirlwind and we are just holding on, trying to make it out on the other side with a pretty little apartment, jobs, and a life in North Carolina.

As we blow across the country to a new place, I am happy it is with Travis and to a time where I think he will find great fulfillment and joy in his studies. Even more, we are thankful, now and always, that we have a foundation in this whirlwind, and that He provides a harbor and a hope as we enter this new season.

  1. Within the first year of our marriage, we moved three times (that isn’t counting my move out of my parent’s home and in with Michael)…it was such a large whirlwind that it makes having a baby seem calm and serene. I still feel a bit like how one feels after twirling around for a minute straight.
    I know you’ll make your new life beautiful, with the help of the Lord.
    Looking forward to seeing the pictures from this season you are entering.

    Durham! My parents met at Duke and I was born in Durham. That was the start of a lot of traveling for me and for the first 10 years of my life we moved a lot more than every 10 months. Initially it was every three to twelve weeks. Sometimes it was across the(Navy) base, or across town, or across the country. I’ve lived in California, Idaho, Florida, and Maine, and many state in between. But the Lord has always gone with me, even before I knew it.
