change is a comin'...

big news bloggy friends.

huge news, actually.

July 15th will be my last day of work!

The last few months have been a roller coaster ride for this girl {and hubby too}. While Scott and I have grown so much closer from it all ,to say that things have been calm and mellow would be like saying the the sky is green, a big fat big lie!!

While I am not ready to share of the details that lead to this decision the hubs and I prayed and discussed me quiting my job and back in May decided to do it. {so as you can see this was not a quick decision.}

Financially it will change a lot of things, but we know we can do it, and we think it is the best decision for our little family.

I am so excited to get to work on all my creative endeavors. I by no means expect to make a killing from rellasbellas but i really want to focus my energy into something that is completely my own. The hubs has been beyond supportive, {he found a masters program for entrepenureal {is that even a word??} education, i told him i thought it was a bit premature, hehe}.

I really want to spend the last 6 months of Scott's tour on shore duty spending as much time as i can with him. The first two years of our marriage were very much controlled by work, his school and many of his out of town work activities.

Plus with the possibility of going overseas at the end of the year I want to be sure to make time to see the family, I have a trip to Minnesota to see the 'rents in mid August and we have a week long trip to Washington to see ash, john and finally meet baby colt!

Come the end of this year Scott will be headed back to a ship {which ship and where, we have no clue yet, fun!} and that will mean 6-9 month deployments, work ups and all kinds of fun things. I really want us to get to spend time together now and grow as a couple to make sure the foundation for our marriage is as strong as it can be before we spend many months of the next few years apart.

This is huge decision and while I do get a bit of anxiety everyone once and while I know in my heart this is the right thing for us to do.

a new chapter is soon approaching and I'm ready!
