So long California

After 6 long months of waiting and trusting in the Lord, we found out....WE WERE MOVING TO CHICAGO!!!! On October 4th, we found out that Brian was chosen for the MECEP program of the Marine Corps. It is such an accomplishment for Brian to be one of the marines chosen out of hundreds of applicants who applied for the program this year. Now that he was selected, we will be moving to Chicago for about 3 and a half years while Brian attends college before moving again to his next training school and duty station where he will then be an officer. He was also accepted to Loyola University and will be majoring in Theology. We are so proud of Brian!! We are so excited to embark on this incredible journey that lies ahead.

Olivia & I baked Brian a cake to celebrate his achievement:)
For the past 5 and a half years, I have lived in California and it has been amazing!! It's where Brian and I lived together for the first time, had both of our children, and made many memories together as a family. I am so excited to move back to the Midwest and be close to our family and friends there. But, it is going to be sad to leave the life we have built in California. We are going to miss all of our friends....we love you guys~keep in touch!!
