still in denial

Happy March (2nd)! Am I the only one in denial that February has come AND gone?! Sheesh! That month flew by for me. My family experienced a lot of BIG changes last month and I'm so proud of how well we handled it! When I say we, I am definitely including myself, because I handled our last move poorer than poorly... to put it nicely :) I also couldn't be more happy with how everything is turning out! For those that are wondering (hey mom and dad! both sets ;)) Eric's job is awesome! He is working soooo much right now, which is totally lame when it comes to quality family time, but we knew that life would be crazy our first couple of months here. But my wifey heart is totally bursting with pride as Eric's been taking that place by storm and is showing them what he's made of (could I be any more cheesy?!) It's so amazing that he's finally working for a company who acknowledges Eric's skills and knowledge, that wants him to succeed, is already investing in him by planning training trips and compensates him for his hard work. You can't even imagine what a relief it is that this has turned out to be as good as we were hoping!! We are so, so grateful! And the people here are pretty amazing! Each week we are blown away as we meet more people and they are so kind and inviting (literally, always inviting us over for dinner) and genuinely want to be friends! It's encouraging me to get out of my comfort zone and be more outgoing when it's much easier to play shy when I don't know anyone. I really think this was a good move for us :) Yay!
We are itching to get out and play and explore, but until work settles down for Eric in the next few weeks, I'll take a simple family date night with my people anytime! We kept Mia up past her bedtime Saturday night while we stuffed our faces with pizza and pazookies from BJS (we are so excited to live close to so much good food!) Then we spent a relaxing Sunday being lazy at home, going to church and eating popcorn while watching movies! These simple days mean so much to us through these months of craziness!
