Exciting News!


In my last post, I mentioned that I had some exciting news to share (some crazy/exciting/terrifying/insane/unbelievable news, to be exact). I told people to try to guess what the surprise was, and most of the suggestions were either 1. a new blog design, or 2., a giveaway. To my (un)surprise, no one got it right... haha, the news is super crazy, so I totally understand why everyone got it wrong. ;)
The news is... we're moving to Oahu, Hawaii! I can't even believe it. We're going sometime around late December THIS year. Yep, in 6 months I'll be on my way to Oahu! I have been praying for a while that God will open doors for my family and I... but this is unbelievable! I was totally expecting Him to give me the opportunity to go on a mission trip in a couple years, but instead, He choose to give us the opportunity to go to a little island in the Pacific Ocean! For a while, I seriously thought getting to go on a mission trip would be the best thing that ever happened to me, and it was the only way He could use me. But instead, He took my dreams and made them a whole. lot. better.

Guys, this island is small. Just to give you an idea how small it is, imagine this: you can drive around the whole island in just 4 hours.
Our friends and family have been so supportive, it's incredible. On Sunday (the same day I wrote my last post), we told everyone at church our "bombshell announcement" (as my dad calls it). They were all so happy for us. A couple from church even wants to come visit us!! We have about 18 family members who want to visit us in Oahu, so life should be very busy there! :)
So, there was my crazy/exciting/terrifying/insane/unbelievable announcement! I hope it didn't disappoint. ;) I will be blogging this entire journey, from moving, going on the airplane/s, getting there, unpacking, life in Oahu, body boarding, learning how to surf, going snorkeling, and more!
Join me on this journey, will you?

...I can explain.

Woah. Life has been crazy and super busy, hence the little number 2 to the right of May on my sidebar. Hehe, life is busy. No, I'm not going to use the typical "busy" blogger excuse, like, "I've been super busy with reading, writing, schoolwork, and life."
No, something legitimately crazy/exciting/terrifying/insane/unbelievable happened to us. I still cannot believe it, it really shows us that nothing truly is impossible with God.
Good things are coming.
P.S. I have a surprise coming for you on the blog, you can take a guess at what it is in the comments, if you want to. ;)
