Greetings from...

The last few months have been quite a whirlwind for us.. there have been a lot of tears.. a lot of frustration and confusion.. but most of all a lot of hoping, wishing and praying!! 9 months ago we started the dental school application process and let me tell you... it is not for the faint of heart. It is a long, tedious, expensive and grueling process. It takes a lot of patience and let me tell you... patience is not one of my strengths. I have had to learn to accept things as they come and just enjoy the ride, but it has been hard at times! 

We never thought this day would come.. 
but ladies and gents it has and we could not be happier about it...

We are sooo happy to be able to say that Kent has accepted an offer to attend Temple University in Philadelphia, and we will be moving there in August! We feel so lucky and BLESSED that Philly will be our home for the next 4 years! Kent has worked so incredibly hard for this over the past 2 years and I am soo soo proud of him for achieving the goal that he set for himself!  

The last 2 years have felt like such a marathon for us, but as hard as it may have been, I feel like I have learned soo much about myself and changed for the better now that it is all coming to an end. My faith in my Heavenly Father has increased immensely.  I have learned how to truly put my trust in him even when I feel like nothing is going right. I have never felt so comforted or guided in my life than I have through this process- it has been such an amazing experience to see what the Lord can do when you have faith in him... I am so grateful for him and his influence in my life! We have been so incredibly blessed and we are so grateful for the support that we have received from friends and family, we could not have done it with out you all! 

If I have learned anything from this process it would be that life is unpredictable, and sometimes hard to bear, but if you can just hold on through the hard parts it is so worth it in the end! Unfortunately we are not in control of everything that happens in our lives.. but sometimes thats the beauty of it all, right? I dont believe in coincidences..I truly believe that things happen for a reason so I know that moving to Philadelphia will be the perfect place for us! Over the next few months I will try stay up to date with this journey we are about to begin, I am really excited to share all of the adventures that we are going to be going through with all of you over the next 4 years! 

OHH and if any of you know anything about Philly and have any advice of places to live, ect.. I would love to hear it! I have never been there and know nothing about the area so any info would help! 

Thanks for reading!
