adventure

We're moving to Kansas!!!
We have been so blessed throughout this entire process!! After much thought and prayer, we have decided to take a job with a little company called:



He'll be working as an Embedded Systems Engineer for the Fitness Department which means he'll be working on cool products like this:

We are so excited for this opportunity!! And feel so incredibly blessed (I can't say it enough)!

My last day of work is next Tuesday, August 24th!! We leave on Wednesday, August 25th and head for Denver. Thursday, August 26th we'll drive the rest of the way to Olathe, KS, home of Garmin International headquarters. We'll frantically be looking for a place to live Friday-Sunday and then Matthew starts his new job on Monday, August 30th.

This whole process has moved fast. We just formally excepted the offer late Friday afternoon and started packing up almost immediately! With a little more than two weeks to do everything I have been a bit overwhelmed, but I'm feeling so excited to start this new chapter!!

Thank you again for all of your love and support!! I know I say that often, but I really feel the good vibes you're sending our way! Thank you a million times over!!

EMILY!!!! I'm SO EXCITED FOR YOU. Congratulations to you and Matthew. Let me know if there is anything I can help with in the moving process.
I'm really good at cleaning, so maybe after you get all of your stuff packed up I can come help do a deep clean.

Yay! That's so awesome. I'm sad you won't be as close to me but my in-laws are in Missouri- maybe we can meet up along a road trip. And GARMIN! Awesome. If you ever need a tester... :) I'm so incredibly happy for you guys- moving onto this next step in life. So great not to have to worry about school work anymore and all that. Seriously awesome- I love you guys and am gushing for you!

Hooray! Did you know you are moving 45 minutes away from us? We will definitely have to meet up in Kansas City to play. Let me know when you get here, we need to have you over for dinner.
