Farewell, Greenfield!



The last few weeks have been insane. We have sold our house in Greenfield, packed up our stuff, and are now starting to settle into our new home in Colorado.

We've actually been living in Colorado for a week now, and I have been putting off writing this post because we have been so busy and I really wanted to take the time to think out how to express all the feelings that I have when I think about leaving Greenfield.

Never in my life did I imagine I would spend any time living in Indiana. And yet here I am, missing it incredibly. The last two years have been a whirlwind. Connor was born and both him and Riley were greatly influenced by family and friends who we were blessed enough to be around during this time in their lives.

I first want to talk about their Grandma Jinx. We would not have survived these past two years without her love and support. I don't even know how to explain how much she helped us while trying to juggle around two kids under two. The relationship that Riley and Connor have with their Grandma is so special and on a personal note, she is the BEST MIL and friend I couldve asked for. We miss her dearly.

Secondly, I want to mention how much I miss their daycare-- Shining Stars Childcare Academy. The teachers there are truly a class of their own. I love how much they genuinely love Riley and Connor. I love how they know each of their personalities, and love every bit of them. We miss them tremendously as well.

And for me personally, it has also been incredibly difficult to say goodbye to my Park Chapel friends and my Zumba friends. These were two major outlets for me during a time in our lives when things were changing rapidly. These friends have greatly impacted my time in Indiana in such a positive way, and I am sad that we are far in distance but I know that we will always be friends and I am thankful for strong relationships like these.

And as we start this new journey in our lives, I am thankful that we have family and friends in Greenfield who helped prepare us for this next chapter, and who will continue to be a part of our lives for now and always.
