Out of our comfort zone

I cannot believe how long it has been since I have posted! SOOOOO much has happened and between photography and Allen's job, I am just plain tired!

Allen took a job in North Houston, he has the territory of Tomball, North Cypress, The Woodlands and Conroe. SO, we chose to live in the Woodlands since it was most like Frisco. He left Stryker and now works for Depuy Spine. This opportunity could be, we took it! :) Allen is AMAZING at what he does......he works soooo hard and I am sooo excited to see what this job brings our little family! There is 88 million untouched business with Spine here in Houston so Allen is gonna go rock it and get all that business...I just know it!! With a lot of hard work and patience good things will happen to our family. We are blessed that God provides and gave us this amazing chance to better our family!

Am I overwhelmed, Yes! You have no idea. In a weeks time, Allen excepted a job, we found a house and moved 5 days later. On top of that, I have 4 photo shoots and two crazy kids wanting all my attention! :) We work well under pressure and although I am stressed I know that I will get through it. I take longer breaths these days, I stop and take it all in....that is all you can do!

We are pretty much settled. Our home is adorable! It is smaller than our last house BUT it accomodates us so much better. We have a HUGE yard with a good sized deck...and the great thing about The Woodlands, TREES TREES TREES!!! It is beautiful here! Today after I ventured to HEB I drove around the sweet town.....ponds, lakes, nature, flowers, trees, fresh air...WOW....God had a plan for our family...he took us out of our comfort zone and placed us in a little paradise city! I am sure we will enjoy long walks on these amazing trails!!!

We loved Frisco, we loved Dallas and still do BUT in life you have to take chances. For a month, Allen and I sat in prayer over where we should go, what was right for our family and where God wanted us to be. This job popped up and we knew it was the answer. God's timing is EVERYTHING. Everything has worked out for us, Ginny's adoption, Reese's birth and now this. All we have to do is have faith. I have no friends here, I dont know a soul but I have my little family and my faith and that is all I need to get by!

I am so happy for you guys. You will learn that as long as you have a husband you adore and amazing kiddos, you can live anywhere. Getting out of your comfort zone can be tough, but very rewarding. There are hard days that you may feel lonely and great days that you feel adventurous! At least you are still in Texas! Good luck and enjoy your new and beautiful scenery!
