8 months!



I can't believe that we have hit the 8 month mark of living in Tampa!! In some ways, it feels like we have lived here longer than 8 months because we have truly developed some very special friendships. We have new friends with whom we can just be ourselves. I love that. In other ways, it seems like just yesterday that we drove from sun up to sun down and then stayed in a townhouse for 4 nights until our new home was ready. It feels like just yesterday that we saw our new home for the first time with OUR paint colors! For the most part, it looks like we have lived here a long time. I feel like I really know our new town and I can get you where you need to go unless you need to go to the heart of downtown!

It is really beautiful here. Today I walked by the water and was greeted by a dolphin. That is pretty incredible!! I am thankful for this journey down by the bay....

I am so glad that you are so settled in your new home. I have had moves where it has been years before I felt settled!

Wow! I cannot belive you have been in Tampa 8 months either. I feel as if you were just writing about your goodbye parties in NC and house hunting! I am glad you have fully embraced the move and that you are enjoying you new home.

I hopped on over to your blog when I was on the 'We are that family blog' and you commented you moved to FL away from family! We have a similar story but maybe for different reasons. I am in the Fort Myers area though..... Glad you have made roots there! God Bless!
