Spilling the beans...our big news!

Ok friends, it's time to share the news that I had to make you wait to hear...

About two weeks ago, Dave got a call from an old Air Force buddy who gave him an out of the blue job offer. It's an amazing opportunity that we would be crazy to turn down! He was offered a position doing what he used to do in the Air Force (and loved) and I couldn't be happier for him. So, we're moving...again...

...to Alaska!!!

Now before you all ask, yes Dave is a musician, and will continue to play. Since he is a fully independent artist, we are the ones who fund every piece of the music. He was signed to two record labels before and was offered a few more opportunities to sign after South by Southwest in Austin last year, but it's just not how we want to proceed with his music. We love having the creative freedom and sole ownership of his songs. This will be great for the music as we'll finally have the funds to record album number two!

As for me, this will take a lot of financial pressure off of me and my photography business (although I have BIG plans for my little biz)! And just look at the gorgeous picture above, I can't wait to see what kind of pretty shots I can capture in Alaska! I'm so excited to finally be able to visit family and friends and just have a little bit more freedom than we ever have since we've been married.

That all said, YES, we are super nervous, very excited, and our minds are blown. We have moments where we think, what on earth have we gotten ourselves into? We're exhausted from the packing and unpacking dance we've been doing the past few months, but I've got my coffee and we're powering through. What keeps us going is knowing this will be a great adventure, and even more so, a wonderful opportunity for our little family and our future.

I'm so excited to have you all on this crazy journey with us and we hope you'll join us on this new adventure! If you don't already, I'd love to have you follow me on instagram...there will be lots of travel/road trip pictures coming up very soon. And since there are changes coming soon to google/blogger, make sure you have me on your Bloglovin' so you don't miss a post!

Also, if any of you live(d) in Alaska, have visited, or just happen to know more about Alaska other than the fact that it's cold- I'd love to hear your suggestions/tips!
