BIG news!

No, this post is not a gender reveal, calm down! This post is definitely about some big news and that is Sean and I are moving down to Riverside, where he has worked for over 3 years. Why are we making the move? Multiple reasons actually:
1. because his current commute is at least 40 minutes depending on traffic. 
2. his cross country practice is at 6am 5 days a week
3. we want him to be closer to home before and after the baby is born
We had been talking about moving to Riverside for a few months now, looking at a few places but no place really stood out to us. That is until last Friday. Sean's work, California Baptist University, owns a few homes in the area and they rent them out to faculty or staff. After viewing the home, I immediately felt peace that this is where God picked for our next home. Our basic needs list was met completely by this home, and Kip and Kimbia will have more space to run around in the backyard. The crazy thing is I looked into the smallest of the 3 bedrooms and could instantly vision how I would arrange the nursery. With that being said, we are moving this very weekend. 
I think God is smiling down on us telling us, "I told you so" because when we first discussed moving earlier in the summer we picked September 1 as the best weekend to move. This is the last two day weekend Sean will have because of his cross country season until the end of November. 
At this new place:
1. Sean will walk to work
2. He will definitely be more available for when the baby is born
3. He still has 6am practice, just doesn't have to get up as early every day

Yes, I know Riverside isn't exactly known as Beverly Hills, however, it is a large city that offers a lot such as the Mission Inn, which is always decorated for Christmas. 

The downtown has a Saturday morning farmers market, there is the California citrus state historic park as the area was very well-known and still has groves of orange trees.

 Just being right next to Sean's work too will allow me to be involved a lot more as well.
So that is the big news. I will have a blog post tomorrow but then not sure as far as next week especially since we don't have an Internet service provider set up yet. However, you can continue to follow me on instagram (henninglove) in the mean time.
