If It’s Important To You…
Saying goodbye is NEVER an easy thing to do!!! Someone is NOT happy!
The first photo, Little Man is watching his Aunt and Uncle give everyone goodbye hugs. Look at the expression on his face. The second photo, Aunt Ashley’s final hug to him!
They don’t get to see each other very often…so it is hard to let go. Even at an early age, they start understanding the family dynamics don’t they?!
Do you remember back several months ago, I told you about a big dream we were working on?
Then…a few weeks ago, you will recall I was walking through some Severe Storm Clouds.
All of you came together to encourage me…I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A WONDERFUL COMMUNITY AS I HAVE HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am one very fortunate blogger!
I can FINALLY make the big announcement. Drum Roll Please…
TARZAN AND I HAVE MOVED TO THE BIG STATE OF TEXAS!!! YES, TO BE WITH LITTLE MAN!!!!!
No, more having to say goodbye!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you hear the happy dance?
We are actually living with our daughter, son-in-law and Little Man until we can find suitable housing.
But, in the meantime, I am using every moment I have available to hug on this precious child.
Can you forgive me for my long absence?
It’s been a very very long road to get here! Just to give you a morsel of this incredible long story.
Tarzan and I have been apart for six months to make this happen…sigh. BUT…

The Little Man is a BIG reason to move on, I’m very happy for all of you! 🙂
Big hug, Dina
I realized I hadn’t seen anything in a while so I stoped by- glad to hear about your move to Texas. Take care
Wow, Laurie, that is such good news! I have been so worried about you these past weeks, and popped over to see if I had missed any posts and saw this! I am so glad you are happy and well and now so close to your grandson and family!
Amazing photos, very nice portraits!!
OH, Laurie! I am so happy for you!! ENJOY!!! blessings ~ tanna
Sorry I’m soooooo late in responding to your news. I could not be HAPPIER for you, Laurie!!! I’m sitting here smiling into my computer screen….enjoy your beautiful family! (Can’t wait to hear about Texas)
Congrats and all the best to you and your family. 🙂
Congrats on the move, Laurie! Wishing you well in your new home 🙂
He is so adorable. I am sure he is trilled to see his family more often. I am so happy for the both of you.
Well, look out Lone Star State…congrats, Laurie. You have made such a great decision. Also: your family is just gorgeous. Ashley yet another stunner. 🙂
My apologies for not being able to visit here and congratulate you sooner Laurie! I’m so very happy for you and can feel your heart sing through this announcement. Your comments on one of my posts about never giving up on your dreams and always shooting for what you want stays with me always – xo
Fabulous, simply fabulous! Heartwarming photos of Little Man to illustrate a moment of truly outstanding Good News! May you find immense joy in being together again, and in your new Texas home!!! We moved to TX (Denton) ourselves a few years ago for some work opportunities, and while it meant being *farther away* from most of our family (those back in the Seattle area) and thus more goodbyes, it put us in what turns out to be an amazing, wonderful community of friends, colleagues, students, neighbors and the like that have made the move even more worthwhile than the good job that brought us here in the first place. I wish you so much delight in your new home, too!
That is so great that you are following your dream! Congratulations on the Move and wishing you a smooth transition. How great to be near your Grandson.
I am absolutely thrilled for you. What an adventure ahead for all of you. I’m so thankful God arranged my life so I could live with my daughter and “our” little man. They are so precious aren’t they. Stay with them as long as all of you can stand it, watching every minute of their growth is priceless.
Hurrah to you for moving, and I don’t blame you one bit! It’s hard to be another state away from the baby grand. 🙂 Ours is in DC, about 11 hours by car, not long at all by plane, but we don’t get to see her enough. No sense in moving that a’way either because my son is in the military and they could have to move at any time. *sigh* Big congrats to you though, on your awesome news!!
Laurie, I am so very happy for you and your family. What a gift for your grandson to have such a loving grandmother. I love the pictures and the quote.
Blessings ~ Wendy ❀
I am crying happy tears for you!! That is so awesome! Being with family is so precious! I don’t do good byes well at all, they are just too hard!! Happy Hugz sent your way! Lisa and Bear
DANCING THE HAPPY DANCE!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
I’m so happy for you, I hope you feel settled in soon 🙂
OMgosh, Wonderful Laurie! I’m pretty sure your bright smile is the reason our weather has warmed up. Happiness overload 😀 Congratulations to all. Enjoy!
How absolutely wonderful! I can’t blame you I don’t think I could be away from my granddaughters!
I am so happy for you and your family. Sometimes it takes time to make dreams happen but when they come true oh the joy…….Hugs…
I can see the happy dance! Things are coming together! Hugs
I am so relieved! I knew when we met over a year ago that this was a dream, and I’m so glad it has come true. I have to confess that I have been very worried about you, and I think I just sighed a big collective relief that your news isn’t dire! However, I’m sad that I won’t get to meet up again when we visit the in laws. Congrats on your big move and for getting to be a more present Grammie!
I am so happy for you. CONGRATULATIONS!
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Congrats, Laurie! What a great clearing of storm clouds!
So pleased for you and your family Laurie! Little Man is one lucky boy! 🙂
Awesome news! Texas is indeed big and beautiful, I grew up in that state (deep south, The Rio Grande Valley). Cheers to you and yours….
So very happy for you and your family Laurie 🙂
Exciting times ahead I’m sure you’ll be keeping us posted !
Oh, this is wonderful news. Big changes are never easy, but how lovely to be close to Little Man and his family. Happy house hunting.
Good morning,Laurie.It was the plunge and you did.You will not be separated from Little Man.I feel your happiness.Beautiful day in Texas with your family. 😛
How exciting to be able to be with the children and the grandbaby. So happy for you! Also, not sure where you lived before but bet Texas is beautiful. ~smiles and happy dance for you~ 🙂 Also, glad you’re back.
Well now how cool is this – welcome to TX! I wondered where you’ve been. I can here you dancing the happy steps! Good for you ~
That is a great move. My huge respect to the best Grandma!
I am so Happy for you.. I can totally understand why you wanted to move. I feel the exact same way about my little guy.. Maybe someday we will make the move.
Good for you! Following your hearts.
YAY!!!! You’re even closer to me! Um…that’s why you moved to Texas, right? Right? Oh… and Little Man. 😉 Seriously Laurie, this is wonderful news! So happy for you all and welcome to Texas!
That is a very sweet move that you will be close to little man and your daughter and her husband. Have a good house hunting!
Very happy for you! We have done something similar, but our kids/grandkids are spread between the SE of the United States and the west coast. The solution? Full time RV! We get to spend some extended time with each of them that way!
Beautiful and so so endearing… And your news – sounds like a perfect decision! 🙂
I’m so happy you are in the Lone Star States 🙂 No more having to say goodbye, how wonderful! You have been missed… Thank you so much for sharing the great news, Laurie!
I am so happy for you that you can be by your “little man”. I’m sure it has been a long road getting there but each day will be filled with joy as you snuggle that little guy! All the best to you throughout your journey and new adventures! Blessings, Robyn
So good to read this post! I was just thinking about you yesterday and hoping everything was ok! What great news, I do know, the saying good-bye is never easy!!!
YAY on your move! 🙂
Love your happy news, Laurie. Lucky you to be so close to your darling little grandson. Things have a habit of working out. Gorgeous photos again. Saying goodbye, is never easy. *hugs*
I’m so happy to hear your news! Your grandson looks like a wonderful “little man” and how great to be close to your daughter again. 🙂
We made our cross country move so we could remain near our granddaughter. She is now a teenager. Time flies so enjoy every moment and you’ll have lots of nice memories. And, could I open a bottle of wine, grab two glasses, and share some real moving stories with you. 🙂 Here’s to happiness in the Lone Star State and you’ve been missed on the web.
Change is good, change is sad, and every now and then necessary. Congrats on the big decision!!!
Congratulations Laurie on the big move to BIG Texas and no more having to say good-bye!!! I think I hear the happy dance.. 🙂
If you build it, they will come! If you want something bad enough, make your dream happen and go get it! I am so happy for you and Tarzan!
Thank you,means alot coming from you my friend.
Your happiness, is my happiness! Hugs!
