Healing Through Kindness Giveaway Fundraiser

It has already been a month since I posted about my father's tragic experience with having a massive stroke, but I am happy to say that with each passing month he continues to get better and better. It's miraculous the healing power the human body has overtime. It's a scary thing to see a loved one go through something like this knowing you can't do a darn thing to change the outcome, but one thing I can do is attempt to help relieve some of my parent's financial burden which is why I put together this giveaway. Now that my husband and I are moving to the Pacific Northwest I would feel better knowing that they are in a better place, financially, making this giveaway fundraiser all that more special to me.

Fall is Coming..

...and I couldn't be more thrilled to finally experience it. Texas is a great state, but one thing it lacks is all four seasons so to be moving to a state that allows you to experience this is a huge deal for me. I am so ready to feel the crisp autumn air, watch the leaves change colors, wear insane amounts of plaid, and drink inordinate amounts of apple cider/ pumpkin spice lattes while sitting on our back patio. I seriously look forward to building a fall wardrobe this season too considering I've never really had much of one, so consider this post a wish list of sorts.

It has been a long time coming, but the day has finally come to announce we are moving! We will be moving to Richland, Washington where my amazing husband accepted the job of his dreams working with The Department of Energy as an Environmental Engineer. I never in my wildest dreams imagined that we would be that newlywed couple living thousands of miles away from everything we have ever known starting a brand new life in a brand new state, but here we are about to take on the adventure of a lifetime. It is still so surreal to me, but at the same time so so so exciting. The hubs and I along with his parents will be flying up there real soon to get a feel for the area + do a little apartment searching making me all that more excited to start on this new adventure. It may have been a long wait for this time in our lives to get finally get here, but God's timing is always perfect and we're extremely blessed to have been given such a great opportunity.  I am one proud wifey <3
