When we got to tell our parents, we did it over skype and sent them the photo's below. I photo shopped ourselves into pictures to give them clues. The first clue was to tell them that we were moving. Pretty clever, huh?
I bet you are all dying to know where we are moving... Well, can you guess from the picture below that we sent our family?
If you aren't familiar with the city you may not know. But we are moving back to our home town of Kansas City!!!!! AHHHH!!! Seriously, this is a miracle in it's self. Ryan was offered a promotion to move to Kansas City with ConocoPhillips, and he gets to work from home (I'm so jealous). He will have to travel but not too many over nighters, thank goodness! His territory size is fairly substantial so I'm hoping I can go with him on a few business trips, like Chicago! KC is definitely not a normal place for COP to be sending their employees, so it's a once in a million chance that this could happen. There were so many things that had to fall into place for this, and they did. :)
I know without a shadow of a doubt that God's divine plan was all over this one. It's amazing to feel/know that God's plan is way better then our own, and that He has something awesome in store for us there. We are ecstatic to be moving back to family and old friends. However, we have made some really great friends in Houston and it's going to be really hard to leave them (and the nice warm winters). It's definitely been an emotional roller coaster for Ryan & I. There are so many things that need to get done between now and when we move.
If you want to shoot up a prayer for the transition to go as smoothly as possible, that would be amazing. We need to sell our house, buy a new one, and I need to find a new job. I'm really going to miss working with some great people and leaving one incredible company. I know this move and Ryan's knew job is for the greater good so it's totally worth it. I'm just praying God has the perfect job for me when I get there.
Our tentative move date is August 1st depending on when we sell our house, and when Ryan needs to be on location. After over 4 long years of being away from family, we are coming home!
