Just short of 3000 miles! After celebrating the fourth of July with family, friends, and burgers, we embarked on our journey to our new home.

This has probably been one of the most challenging seasons of my life. I have had the privilege of seeing many of my dreams come true, but I have also seen my entire world crumble.
