A Big Day

Why was yesterday such a big day for us?

Not because it marked exactly two months until our due date...

Not because Prom is over, this is the last full week of school, and I'll be off for summer VERY soon...

Not even because we ate dinner at Olive Garden AND I kept my blood sugars in check...

(Although all of those things are special and exciting, of course.)

It was an especially happy day for us because...
Jeff started a new job!

I'm not going to share tons of details (1. because it is kind-of boring if you aren't into business and technology; and 2. because Jeff is a lot more private than me --- I had to remind him that if I didn't post, my blog readers might be worrying about us).  I will say this: the position is in ROANOKE, and it is really perfect for this stage of our lives.  It is a small family-friendly  company and , already, they have been so good to Jeff.  We are genuinely excited about not just having any new job, but this job in particular. 

I don't know why I am always so surprised; but... God is SO good and, once again, has provided beyond our expectations. Our house is officially off the market and preparations for Baby C can really get underway now!  (Although Jeff will have a lot less time for nursery decor etc. I better step it up!)

And, just because I'm his wife, and I can do this, I have to say how proud I am of my husband.  He has been so diligent and faithful.  I TRULY believe that God had a plan for this season. of our lives. Jeff  being home has been SUCH a blessing to me during the difficult days of pregnancy, and we both have learned a lot about trusting each other and trusting the Lord.  I am glad that this chapter of our little lives is over; but, I think we will be better people and better parents because of it.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers!


  1. Such wonderful news!! I had no doubt that he would end up exactly where he was supposed to be. AND...even if this isn't his "forever" company home, it definitely sounds like he's made a great move as far as job satisfaction goes :)

  2. i was thinking about you guys a lot yesterday! Tell jeff we are so happy for him!

  3. I wish we lived closer and could meet one day over caffeine free Diet Cokes. We have so much in common! My hubby was laid off just before Christmas and was without work for the last 4 months. He has a job now, and though it barely pays what he made as a co-op in college, we are so thankful that he has something! Isn't it great how God provides for us, even in terms of a stay-at-home, selfless, hardworking husbands?!

  4. What great news! Congrats to Jeff on his new job.
