Our 2nd Move!

      In March, we found out we would be moving to Tulsa, OK in June for Taylor's work. It was very bittersweet. After school ended in May, we drove to Tulsa to look for a house to rent. We found a house which was our first blessing. Our moving date was June 16th. My mom came out the first of that week and helped us pack and move! The Roberts drove up to Alamogordo to help us pack the Uhaul. That was our 2nd blessing! Once we got to Tulsa my dad was there and had some movers to help unload the Uhaul. That was our 3rd blessing! My parents spent the weekend (Father's Day) with us helping unpack a ton of boxes. We had a blast showing them around Tulsa. On Monday they drove back to Bham. The next day Teal and I drove back for two weeks while Taylor traveled to El Paso for 2 weeks.

The Roberts helped us pack up!

About to pull out of the driveway for the last time! 

We had a Uhaul with a trailer on the back, a truck with a trailer on the back, and my SUV! 

Our new home! 

Happy Father's Day! 

 I loved the time spent at home. My family and I went down to Panama City the first weekend I was home and we took Teal on the boat for the first time. She LOVED the beach. It was then that she became a water dog! While in Birmingham I was able to be there to celebrate Mom and Dad's birthdays. I also was able to see a lot of my friends and spend time just relaxing. I didn't have to worry about unpacking ONE box! HA
Teal's first trip on the boat!

  Although we are loving Tulsa, Alamogordo will ALWAYS hold a special place in both of our hearts! It was where we began our life together and we will never forget that place!

It's almost been a YEAR!

Wow! So it has almost been a year since I have posted on our blog. With my first year of teaching last year I was just too busy to blog so I apologize for not keeping yall informed. I am going to try to stay on top of it this next year! The Lord has continued to bless Taylor and I this past year. I had a great 1st year of teaching in Alamogordo. I loved my job and my kiddos. What a blessing they were and continue to be in my life. We had a wonderful 1st Thanksgiving with my parents and a great 1st Christmas with Taylor's family. We were there to experience the birth of sweet Charlotte Anne (we weren't there for the actual birth, but was able to see her a few days later) in December. We we able to see our nephew, Row, for the first time over Christmas. We had some friends come out and go skiing with us for New Years which was an adventure in itself. We experienced a snow/ ice storm for the first time. We celebrated our 1st anniversary in the mountains, as well as, Teal's 1st birthday in February. Taylor killed his 1st turkey last spring and we were able to explored Colorado with the Roberts in May. Looking back we couldn't have had a better year and 1/2 in Alamogordo, NM. The time spent there was precious. There are defiantly days we miss it. Here are some pictures that highlight the past year...
