January : where did you go?!

January came and went for us! We were so busy every weekend away in either Florida or Georgia! I was extremely exhausted by the time the month was over. But I am so grateful to God it was busy because of very exciting moments.

First of all, my friends Jackie and Lino were finally married and had the most magical wedding at Disney World! We flew out for MLK weekend. I was a busy BM capturing all the moments and soaking it all in for them. I am so happy for them because I know how much Jackie planned/worried for it to all come together. She was a beautiful bride and he was a happy guy. Everything turned out beautifully and I am so happy for them! I am always happy when my friends are happy. Congratulations J+L finally did it!

Then, my best friend Janelle celebrated her Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party! The following weekend my bags were packed and I was on a plane AGAIN headed for Florida. This bridal shower couldn't have been any more perfect. Forget the theme and decorations (which came out exactly as I envisioned, btw) , I've never seen my sister so happy and overly joyful in my life! She is so in love and so ready to be married to Jay. And that melted my heart to see her so beautiful and content. Jay is the ONE for her. I know he will take good care of her and love her forever. They are truly blessed to have each other. I can't wait for the wedding, which is the last weekend in February!

The Bachelorette party was right after the bridal shower. It couldn't have been any more perfect to do it this way. A full day of celebrating the awaited wedding and Janelle. We head to South Beach where we stayed at Gansevoort Hotel. We partied like crazy! We got beautiful, a little tipsy, went dancing, etc. Again, Janelle lived it up! She looked beautiful.

And finally, I haven't blogged about the exciting news in our lives yet because when we first learned about how our future would change we had mixed emotions. Needless to say it came to us as a big surprise. I haven't blogged about it because we've had a lot of thinking to do and decisions to make and it has not been an easy time, especially since it came right before the holidays and all the wedding planning I was helping in doing. In late July we learned my husband's company had decided to relocate to Atlanta. Our mixed emotions about it all had to do with the fact that we had JUST moved to NC from Miami, we love our home, I LOVE MY SCHOOL, and we felt we weren't ready to make another move. But after much consideration, and after we realized that there were no other jobs hiring, we made the bold decision that THIS OPPORTUNITY was the best for us. I truly believe God handed this to us and He has been the one who has helped us get through it all. We've relied so much on our faith this time. God is so awesome. We had a timeline and we used the entire time to really plan out our future. And it has lead us to make this life changing decision. This has definitely brought us even closer. I have so much pride in my husband. He works so hard and wants the best for ME and US and always puts US first. This was not easy on him at all. I have to admit that I've been his back bone through it all...I tend to be the positive one in our relationship. But it was all because of God. He listened to me and helped me be strong through all of this. Our friends and family have also been very supported and hopeful for us, too. So, that helped us a lot. THANKS YOU GUYS!
So, there you have it. We are going to be "Nesting in GA". I can't believe it! I will be a GA Peach!

I will blog so more later on to update you some more about our transition. We already went house hunting twice in January. I am getting more and more excited about it each day. I am so proud of my husband and I am hopeful this will all be a new and exciting journey! Can't wait to see what God has in store for us next!
