Four Years & A Weekend Full of Crazy

Can you even believe that it has been FOUR years since we have made that huge leap of faith?!?  In yesterday's post I was talking about how these weeks have been flying by.  Forget weeks!  I said it has been four YEARS!  Look at these two wacky kids - who decided to pack up a U-Haul and make a move down to Florida without jobs.  We had no idea what we were in store for!  Four years later...and we don't regret a single thing!  This life we have created down here has been amazing!
Stephen and I are so incredibly lucky that we have some family down here in Florida!  In fact, the risky move we made wouldn't have even been possible if it weren't for them!  Turns out we only had to live with them for two days, because once we got down here things escalated VERY quickly.  By the second week in August, we were settled in our new apartment, I had started my job as a Guidance Counselor, and Stephen was in the interview process for the job that he ended up getting two weeks later!  It was a whirlwind!  
My Aunt, Uncle, and cousins live over three hours away from where we happened to end up, but we get to see them often.  I thank my lucky stars every day.  We love it down here, but it makes it even better to have them so close (close enough).  It is always a great time whether they are coming up her to visit us, or if we are taking a ride down to see them!  I'm excited about spending this weekend with this particular group of crazies.  This print cracks me up, because it is very fitting.  I need something like this to hang up fo' sho'!  
I always hear people describe their family as "crazy"...I definitely believe this is true of mine! Obviously I mean it in the most loving way!  There is a very high entertainment factor when we are all together.  I love it!  That is what family is all about isn't it?!  I'm not really sure what is on the agenda, but I'm sure it will all revolve around food!
Hopefully you all have a fun weekend as well with your own set of crazies!  I'll be back later tomorrow with the weekly meal plan! XO
