I. Am. So. EXCITED!!! I have some news to share with you... two pieces of news to be exact! As always, let me preface these announcements with my typical "No, Matt and I are not getting married," and "No, I am not having a baby." Now that those customary statements are out of the way, I can tell you: I recently accepted a new job with an amazing nonprofit in town! I am so psyched for this new position. I think I will learn a lot while, more importantly, having the opportunity to really impact our community. I start next week, and I am so ready!
The other announcement has to do with housing (which I previously mentioned was causing us some strife). The lease for the apartment Matt and I currently live in ends at the end of this month. We have been trying to look all around Central Phoenix, in hopes that we could find a rental house. We really wanted to upgrade and we were paying wayyy too much for a one bedroom apartment. That also means that the houses in the area we live in are generally pretty pricey too, though; however, we hit a serious stroke of luck this past weekend, and we are officially moving into our dream bungalow in just a few weeks! [I will tell more about the story of how serendipitous this particular situation is in a later post -- and maybe I'll even do a little "home tour" once we're all settled in!] Hip, hip, HOORAY!

I can't wait for all these big life changes. I truly feel so fortunate. These just serve as reminders that anytime I'm getting stressed out over things I cannot handle, that I just need to have faith that it will always work out for the best in the end. Cliche? Sure. But it's the truth.
