Rumor has it

There's a not so small rumor going around our oh so small town
Everyone is talking about it
In the carpool lines and backyards
At happy hours and in the Piggly Wiggly

Rumor has is it we're putting our house on the market and hitting the road
And the best part...

It's true
Yes, that's right
We're moving to Richmond
And we're not just leaving our house, we're leaving our life.
I'm excited
I'm terrified
I've prayed
I've packed
I've drank bottles of wine with old friends
I'm afraid 
That I won't make new friends
That I won't be invited to a new playgroup or bunco
That I'll walk by envying women sitting on front porches drinking wine and wishing I was on mine
That our beautiful beloved first home won't sell
Please pray for us!



  1. Whoa!!!!!!! So excited for you but bummed we won't have our wine date!!!! What is your timeline?

  2. YAY! Get it up here, we need to become friends!

  3. I know exactly how you feel. We are leaving our life in suburban Atlanta where we have been for 13 years and moving to Jacksonville FL where we know no one. I have the same fears about making new friends. Good luck to you!

  4. You? Not make friends anywhere?! I know you will make TONS of great friends soon! I'm happy for you, and praying for you at the same time. XOXO

  5. Congratulations!!! I can't wait to see how you decorate your new house! You are so talented and friendly you are bound to make loads of friends! Everything is scary at first, but I know it will all work out. Best of luck!

  6. Yay!!! Love that quote. Must post it on the fridge. So proud of you for seizing opportunity when it presents itself, despite how hard the decision. Hugs and kisses from the Sauers to the Ryans.

  7. Love that quote!

    Praying for a smooth move for y'all, and the house sells quick! Everything WILL work out as it should.

  11. Jump! We moved here with five kids. We didn't know anyone! I didn't know where anything was ! I love it here and I am so happy that we made the leap of Faith:)))) big prayers and hugs:)

  12. Anyone I meet who grew up in Richmond absolutely raves. I can't wait to watch you decorate a new house through your blog. I love this Richmond interior designer's blog, and imagine she'd invite you to playgroup ;)

  17. What an exciting next chapter in life Julia! I know how you feel and will certainly keep you in my thoughts and prayers! I usually get so ahead of myself decorating new house in my head that I forget I will have to make friends when I get there! But now- finally, a year later, I feel comfortable and have wonderful friends! Good luck!
