Settling In

Have you ever moved somewhere and just knew you were home? 

I was born in Provo, UT and when I was 3 months old my family moved to Denver, CO. That's where I lived for the next 30 years of my life. 

My husband was transferred to West Virgina so off we went. 

I loved West Virginia. I made life long friends there. Friends that I consider family and I love. 

But for the four years we lived there, something was missing. We knew we weren't there to stay, so we never felt settled all the way.

We now live in North Carolina. We just moved here three months ago, but as soon as we drove to our new little town, I knew we were home.

I just felt right.

Everyday I find something else I love about living here.

I have found a peace and contentment here that I haven't felt in a long time.

This place just fits.


  1. My husband and I lived in Houston, TX for 11+ years. I never liked it. It NEVER felt like home. Not once. We moved to Charleston, SC in August 2008 and from day 1 it has felt like home. Funny how that happens!

  2. Hi Angie! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you did because I love yours! I can't relate to moving cities because I have lived on Oahu Hawaii all my life. I can imagine the sense of comfort you describe and it sounds wonderful.

    I love your idea of superwoman Saturday. :). Can't wait to learn more about you!

  3. I have never lived out of the state that I grew up in, but we have moved from town to town throughout the state...the northern and western part of the state are my favorites, and I just never felt comfy anywhere else, strange since its all Massachusetts, right? Thanks for joining in the hop!
