Atwell Adventures

saying goodbye to our first home

As I’m surrounded by organized chaos in our apartment and waiting for the movers to arrive, it’s hard to believe that our time here is done.

Moving here in July was unlike any move I’d ever done before {and I’m not just talking about the husband part}.

I moved here knowing that more than likely at the beginning of the new year, we would be looking for a new place to live. Little did we know, it would actually happen in December!

Shortly after I got settled, I asked G to pray that I would open my heart to the people God was surrounding us with. Sometimes I can keep to myself – especially if I know that my time with someone will be short term.

Thankfully God allowed me to be open and in that process He allowed me to meet some wonderful people here.

From our friends through church to other officers and their wives, it’s interesting all the different people we’ve met in such a short time {I guess the fact it’s a military community helps that too}.

Telling all of them goodbye was sad, but it’s exciting to see all the people we added to our “family” these last few months.

Thanks to all of you for making our time here wonderful! We love you!
