A couple weeks ago I dropped a hint that major news was coming… Are you ready because it is MAJOR. Like, sit down and put down your wine/coffee kind of major…
The Rowans are moving to Texas!!!!!!!
I still find it a little shocking to say out loud and part of me won’t believe we’ve moved till I’m relaxing by my pool in the Texas sunshine!! However, visas are in the works, the house is being readied to sell, belongings are getting purged and my family is headed to Houston over Spring Break to check out our new neighbourhood, so I would say it’s time to pack away the skis and embrace the adventure!!
Special thanks to Jillian of Keisha’s Korner for custom making me this EPIC tee – head over to her Facebook page and give it some love and while you’re there, check out her special promo for World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd – you can get an awesome statement tee, support local AND show awareness and acceptance towards people with Autism. (And I might just add that Jillian’s son happens to be one of the cutest kids and best teachers I’ve ever met – xoxoxo I’ll miss you guys!)
We are not moving TODAY. There are more details yet to be worked out than I care to contemplate but I have faith that it will all come together in due time. I anticipate the big day will be after the school year is done, so there will be a few more months of
winter Alberta backdrop. AND for anyone who thinks we are going in the opposite direction than many of our American friends wish they were going, let me be clear: my leader is no president; my leader is the King of Kings and as praying people, we go where our King leads us and He’s leading us to Texas.
It ought not to come as too much of a shock that a woman with 60 dresses is destined to live in a warmer climate!! Apparently, my thrifting inclinations were hints for my future!
What does this mean for me, for you, for this little slice of Internet entertainment? Well, I am beyond excited to thoroughly explore the Texas thrifting scene so I see plenty more thrifting awesomeness in our future! However, as I prepare for the transition and ultimately move, I simply won’t be able to post as much as usual. I hope you’ll stick around though because this adventure is sweeter when it’s shared, and the more sweet, the less bitter the thought of leaving my cherished friends and family, my sister, my community here, my village, my clubs, my church, my VV Boutique… Sniff sniff, now I’m getting all teary…
Bittersweet is the only adequate word for this kind of adventure, but I’m up for it! Now someone get me some hair spray and some grits because this girl is going to TEXAS OR BUST!
