New Beginnings

Wow! It's been almost a year since I've written my blog. We've been busy changing our lives and the year flew by. I'll catch you up!

Last fall, we decided it was time to leave New York City and return to our hometown Virginia. You can always go home again and it's been great. Moving back to Virginia was the best decision that we've made.

In the past year, we have just about changed everything except our happy marriage and our two cats. In January 2015, Marlon and I moved to a historic neighborhood that's close to my family. We started new jobs and bought a car. Sadly, I lost my grandma and mom after long illnesses. I'm thankful I got to spend some time with them early in the year. Our adoption home study has been completed for Virginia. Last month, we closed on our dream house! An 1880 Victorian townhome, which we are renovating. It's been a whirlwind. All of these things could be stand-alone posts, but I'm moving forward these days. I never thought Virginia would be busier than NYC. Sometimes you have to give life a little kick to get where you want to go! All in all, we are happy and we're still waiting to adopt.

If you or someone that you know is thinking about making an adoption plan, we ask that you think of us. Thank you!
