Tennessee, Here We Come

It's official...after our wedding and honeymoon in July, Steve and I will be relocating to northern Tennessee!

Steve has accepted a job as a mechanical engineer at an aluminum plant in southwestern Kentucky (I guess about 1 of every 3 pop/beer cans is made from aluminium from this plant--think of us the next time you pop the top of a cold one :) Last weekend he and I drove down to explore the area together and check out housing options. We found some apartment possibilities, but nothing's definite yet except the fact that we are headed down there. I'm starting to look into what might be available job-wise for me in the publishing field down in Nashville...I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing or even how realistic of a commute it would be, so I'm praying God will just make it clear by opening/closing doors.

It's exciting to have some direction, and to have the reality of starting a new life together come a little closer...yet to be honest, I'm scared to death. I have no idea what it's going to look like to live out my role as a godly wife and helpmate to Steve...we don't know a single soul down idea whether we'll like the area...the process of finding and settling into a strong church...and I hate country music :)

Seriously though, it's overwhelming. I am SOOOOOO excited and ready to be married...I'm just not so excited about all of the grown-up stuff that comes with it.
