Ohio, we are home!

What a whirlwind these past few months have been! A little less than a month ago, Steve & I packed up our little family and moved back home to Columbus. It's hard to explain the feeling of when something just feels "right"... but that's the best way I can describe being back in Ohio. There is such a sense of peace to be back surrounded by our family. It feels as though we are finally home.

But what a rollercoaster of emotions it has been. I think back to 3 and half years ago when Lucas and I moved out to Northern Virginia to be close to Steve. I had no friends, no job of my own, and was trying to figure out this whole "mom thing." Terrifying would be putting that experience lightly. It gives me chills to think about how I started and ended my journey in Northern Virginia. By the time I left Virginia, I had 3 years of nursing experience in an extremely fast paced labor and delivery unit and I had made better friends than I could have ever dreamed. My heart aches leaving our friends behind, but as they remind me, "Good friends never say goodbye, they simply say 'See you soon'."

I think back to all the prayers I prayed over & over & over again when I moved to Virginia and all I can think now is, God is SO GOOD, but man-oh-man does he challange you sometimes ;)

The best surprise going away party, thanks to the best friends ever. <3
Have I mentioned that I have the best friends ever? ;) a sense of humor only L&D nurses could appreciate...
Love my coworkers!!
Ohio, here we come!
