Bitter Sweet -- My big news!

 
{via}
I've been holding in some exciting news for a few months now, but I have finally informed all necessary people and I can now finally tell all of you! In just a few short months, we are moving to Florida (for those of you who don't know, Jon is in the Coast Guard and is being stationed there)! It is a fantastic and exciting adventure that we are about to embark on and I am ecstatic, nervous and anxious all at the same time! I have been an Oregonian for all 25 years of my life so this will be a dramatic, yet awesome change. We will be in St. Petersburg/Tampa are (St. Petersburg holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the most sunny days in a row, 768)! I mean seriously, white sandy beaches? Sunshine almost everyday? I'm in. 
I will continue blogging from the other side of the country than where I am now and not much will change, except there might be more photos of palm trees and beaches :) I am so excited to share our adventures with all of you!
Any fellow Florida bloggers out there?!
