The BIG Move!

On Wednesday, January 12, 2011, JP and I hopped on a plane and headed up north to our new home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We couldn't be more excited about this huge change in our lives and we are so thankful that God has placed this challenge in front of us!

For those of you who don't know, JP's job with Shell Oil has uprooted us out of the comfort of our home in Houston and transplanted us in the foreign city of Pittsburgh. I have been blessed and will be keeping my job as the sales operations manager at Logica, but I get to work from home this year! I know that it will present many challenges, but I am ready to except whatever is put in front of me. Since my company is still based in Houston, I'll be traveling back to Houston several times this year! {I know that my parents as well as JP's are very excited about this :)}

We have been pretty busy since we landed in Pittsburgh. Before leaving, we found out that our belongings wouldn't be arriving until Monday the 17th! Yes, that's tomorrow and we've been here since Wednesday! We've been staying at an Extended Stay Suites and trying to get little things done like shopping for some basics: a desk, washer/dryer, decorations for our new home, etc. I'm looking forward to all of our stuff getting here tomorrow so I can start to decorate!!!

Here's a picture of JP in front of our new town home!

My first snow angel in Pittsburgh

It's so much colder than Texas!

That's all I have for now since this is my first post. I hope to keep all of our friends and family up to date on what is going on in our lives now that we're so far away. We are beyond blessed to have this adventure placed in front of us. This is the opportunity for us to grow closer to each other and God and learn to rely solely on each other.

Expects some new posts on our new home, our potential puppy and so much more!

With love and God Bless,
Amy and JP
