Chad came home one day in October and asked if I wanted to move to Lynchburg Virginia. He’d been approached about a possible job, and I starred wide-eyed back at him and formulated my response. No offense to any Lynchburg locals, but I’m a beach fan. Moving 2 hours further away from the beach seemed […]

Oh dear. It’s beginning. I’ve been casually shopping online for house things. I’m pretty excited to have a space to make our own. Chad and I have been focused on packing so it’s nice to dream of a clean, well put together home with color on the wall. Pinterest has been helpful in finding ideas, […]

Miles, that is. In the next three weeks, I’ll be packing for two trips. One is a week long vacation to a location over 4000 miles away, and the other is a forever move just 5 miles down the road. Having moved 3 times in the past two years [this will be move 4], I […]

I have been pretty much M.I.A. for the past 5 or 6 days. I have been away from a computer so there have been no blog posts, no tweets, no facebook posts, and no online presence whatsoever. And I’m so embarrassed! But, I have a pretty good reason. In the next 5 weeks, Chad and […]

Friday was an amazing day, praise the Lord. So many worries were put to rest. I got the phone call around 4:25. “Charlotte” he started…”sville.” And just like that, without any further discussion, he had to go. And I had to call my daddy. Chad and I, and Alisandra Photography, are moving to Charlottesville, VA. […]

For those of you who don’t know, BB&T holds The Williamson’s fate in their hands. Well, sort of. My husband works for BB&T and has been training in Winston Salem since July. In May, we pick up and move to an undisclosed location. Today, Chad and I are told our “orders,” as my mom calls […]
