Does that not sound foreign to you?

I think that if I could predict what this year will look like for our family, I would use the word change.

Although we are just days into the new year, I can just feel the impending change in the air.

Which is both exciting and frightening.

You see, I'm not always okay with change. The unknown is scary to me. I'm a self-confessed control freak who enjoys predictability. I'm not one to venture out of my safety zone.

But change is coming. I know it. I can feel it.

First and foremost, my "baby" Carson will be four years old in less than two weeks. My mind cannot come to terms with that. His new favorite thing to do as of late is pretending to propose to a "pretty girl." What scares me is that before I know it, he really will be down on one knee asking some son-stealing lovely young woman for her hand in marriage. I know what you all are thinking. I'm being dramatic. But the years seem to be flying by like days. Oh and did I mention Carson starts pre-school this year? Talk about separation-anxiety (for me-not Carson!)

And just two weeks after his birthday we will be moving to a new home, leaving behind the house we've lived in for 3.5 years. Although anyone who knows me in real life can attest to the fact that this is a much needed move, I'm already becoming nostalgic. This was our first home. And the memories we have shared will forever be connected with this house. But with all that being said, I am soo excited about our new home! I can't share details about it quite yet, but note that there will be plenty of posts to come! :)

Another area of change for 2011 will be me graduating from the college I attend this year-I have so many options concerning what exactly I will do after that happens...Prayers are greatly appreciated! :)

2011 will most certainly be a memorable year for our family...

I'll end this rambling post with scripture that I find particularly comforting...

'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.'

Jeremiah 29:11 

Happy New Year!
