Independence Day 2015.
Well, we did it, y'all. We are the proud residents of Denver, Colorado, a vision my husband and I have had for about five years! When one's dreams become reality, there's immense joy, of course, but also a bit of anxiety (for me, anyway) seeing the power of God bring something into fruition. After months of praying, planning, and waiting, we are here. As we walked through our apartment for the first time, I was surprised to find that I was unable to speak; all I could do was take it in because it represented everything we'd fought for. We literally gave up almost everything to make this move. Selling or giving away our belongings was easy. Walking away from people we'd shared our lives with has proven to be a much harder task...
At any rate, July 4th was our first major holiday since The Big Move, and the notion of liberty resonated more ever. We are starting over, and quite frankly, we don't have much, but we know who we are, where we want to go, and possess the ability to accomplish our goals.
We are truly free indeed.
