We're Here!

Just wanted to let everyone know that we made it to DC! We left Starkville June 9 and got here on the 11th. It takes a lot longer traveling with a baby! 

We are living in Alexandria, VA (specifically the Del Ray area) and it is so beautiful! Jesse searched for a long time to find a good place and he did a GREAT job! We are just down the street from so many restaurants, shops, a coffee shop, an ice cream place, a pilates studio :), and there are people out walking and running everywhere! Most people you see either have a stroller or a dog with them. We are on the 2nd floor of a small 3 story apt with a balcony on a tree lined street with beautiful houses around. We are still getting settled and working through boxes, but it's coming together! 

I was (and still am) sad to leave Mississippi, but now that we are here I'm pumped about our new adventure! Jesse started work on Monday and is only a 20 minute metro ride away from the heart of DC. He is working just down from the Capitol near the Washington Monument. So cool! So I officially began my job on Monday as well as a stay at home mommy! So excited that we can do that. Praise the Lord!

Please pray for us as we make this adjustment. It's all new and fun right now, but it is a huge change for us! Pray for friends as well. This is our first time to move so far from home. 

I have a lot to update you guys on... Turner's 3 month photos, our trip to Hawaii, the big move, and Turner's 4 month photos (since he turns 4 months old this Saturday!)  Many posts soon to come!


  1. Sooooooo happy that you all are there. We miss you a lot tho! Keep us up on things!

  2. Yay for a new place!! Keep that adventuresome spirit alive--look at it as a treasure hunt :) It'll feel much better with a little time under your belt--and when those hard days come, just call! :) And hooray for a Pilates studio!! So proud of you guys--praying for y'all!
