In less than a month, the Chan/Barnett family will be packing up and moving out of Richmond. We’re not going far, just 2 hours west to Harrisonburg. But I am quitting my job, Taylor’s starting a doctorate program at JMU in music, and I am going to stay at home and raise Abby.

There’s a lot to say about all of this: how we came to this point, how we feel about the move, the logistics of moving, my excitement and minor terror at spending alldayeveryday with my adorable, sweet, stubborn and talkative toddler, and how I am going to have to learn how to cook again (Taylor cooks everything! The last time I made dinner was in January!). But there’ll be time to blog about all of that (you know, between my “stories” and my bonbon-eating).

Things are going to change around here (I’ll post, for one thing) and I hope you’ll stick around to check it out.

Here’s what I’m holding on to right now: God is good and He’s got us. We are provided for. Abundantly.

Feel free to remind me of that!
