Howdy Ya’ll!

So… It’s official. In 17 days, we will be making our big move to San Antonio, Texas!

Mark got the interview with USAA a few weeks ago, and they flew him out to SA to meet them and interview. But we were still almost positive we were going to go with a company in Provo, UT called Qualtrics. Qualtrics definitely fit Mark’s personality, and had amazing connections. Plus they had a company dog. I mean, awesome right? But even though Mark kept telling me “We don’t know for sure” I just assumed we’d go there. I knew it was what he really wanted. I was a little bummed, not gonna lie, but I wasn’t sure why. It just felt off.

And then I figured out why. When Mark got the generous job offer from USAA, the feeling we both got threw us for a loop. It just felt right. It didn’t seem logical at first, but once it became a reality we felt peaceful and comforted about our decision.

It will be hard to be so far away from our families, but it will be an opportunity to grow and begin our own family. It will be hard not knowing anyone, but it will be an opportunity to make friends. It will be strange going from Mormon-Land to Country-Bible Belt-Cow Boy-Land, but change is a good thing!

So, here’s to Mark’s last “finals week” and our last semester on campus. Here’s to beginning our grown-up life.

And… dude. It’s like 80 degrees there this week.

Can I get an amen!?
