There was once a shy girl who grew up in Utah.
The shy girl met her Prince Charming.
They married and shortly after their princess Madison was born (she was a lot smaller back then).
John graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. The family that grew up in Utah packed up their things, the 2 1/2 year old princess, and drove to Texas where John had found employment. During the following 12 years they lived in one apartment, bought 2 homes, and had 3 princes.
Texas has been home for us. We love the friends, the schools, and the area. Everything has been good except for the gosh darn humidity. Oh, and all the large bugs. The girl missed her mountains, her family, and seasons. But after 12 years of living in the lone star state it was known that Texas was their home. They were very surprised when a job is sending them back. Back to Utah and their mountains.
Princess Madison is a Texan through and through. She loves her friends, the weather, and all the Texas Stars. So imagine her dismay when her parents announced that we're returning to the land of her birth. She doubts that she will ever forgive her parents for this cruel twist of fate. But her parents know she's strong and will thrive in her new world.
John begins the first step on this new journey in the next few weeks. We will be apart as we try to sell our new house in Texas. It is so bitter sweet to leave our friends and especially my brother Daniel, his Heidi, John's aunt and uncle, and our home of 12 plus years.
