2 days to Shreveport

The countdown begins! I am only 2 days away from Shreveport. 2 days until I can be within 15 minutes of my Stephen rather than 5.5 hours by car. 2 days until I pack my car, with my attempt at narrowing down my closet, shoes and craft obsession.  This should be interesting!

As you may or may not know, I've taken a job in Shreveport with LSU-Shreveport Health Sciences Foundation.  I will be doing Development for them.  I am really thrilled for this opportunity and to work for such a great foundation in Shreveport. 

I will be living with Mary-Katherine (Stephen's sister), who we call Kat.  She's so sweet and I can't wait to spend more time with her.  When she's studying and I'm off work, I'll be helping renovate and decorate at Stephen's.  I can't wait to work in the yard, strip wallpaper, paint and knock down walls!  I will be channeling Sarah from Sarah's House (favorite TV show on HGTV).

Tomorrow my parents are going to take me to dinner to celebrate my move. I'm sad to go, but I know this is such a fun chapter in my life and I am excited for them to be a part of it too. I can't wait to show them Shreveport and the life I'm going to live there. I can't wait to write the story of this new chapter and be able to share some of the fun things we're going to do in Shreveport!

I'll try to keep this as updated as possible. I know I'll be far from family and friends, but I hope you all know that you have a place to stay in Shreveport! You can come down and have some crawfish. But don't plan on me fixing it. Or eating it. Not at first at least! I'm still an Oklahoman for crying out loud. I'll work up to being Southern. I have a ways to go I think ;)
