{Happy Dance!}


Don't you just love it when the stars align, everything seems to be going your way and one of your biggest dreams comes true???? My husband and I had this very thing happen this last week, he got the call we've been waiting for telling him he got the job he applied for in Idaho!! Whoo hoo!! We've been trying to move home close to family for quite some time now and now it's actually happening. I'm so proud of Taner.....I know it has been a hard decision for him to move home...he loves his job here and will have to make a few sacrifices to go to Idaho. We both know it is and will be the best thing for our family, with all of our extended family near by and raising our kids in a smaller community...it is always what we've wanted.
It's also kind of bittersweet in a way though too....we've made a life here, had our two children here in this little house we call home, made wonderful friends, and have come to love this area we live. So, even though I'm on an extreme "high" from excitement that it's finally happening, I also have a little twinge of sadness that we're leaving this all behind. Am I crazy???
We have a busy time ahead of us, a lot of changes, and a brand new start that I am really looking forward to. I'm also excited about the idea of having some more space to start up a small studio of my own....something I've been wanting to do for awhile now too! So.....keep posted, I'll keep you updated on what happens and how it all goes!! Wish us luck! Much love and Happy Valentine's Day from the Esterbrook Fam xoxoxo

Brooke...I hear you're possibly going to be moving too and will be having more time home with your boys...that's wonderful and I'm sure you're happy to be able to do that. Change is sometimes scary but it sounds like a fun change, best of luck and keep us posted! :) McKenzie you are so funny, we would love to be living next door, Eli would have a blast playing with the kids!
