After much prayer and pondering, we have decided that..... 
we're moving home to Colorado!!

Colorado has our hearts.
It has the resting places for our babies. 
It has our parents.
It also has the mountains, good friends, good weather, good jobs, and it makes us happy.

Don't worry- BYU-I has a great online degree program so Lucas will still get his business management degree through the school and wont lose any time or credits. He is also going to get his Real Estate license for Colorado! There are more jobs and more nursing programs for me to attend also.
It seemed that we had two choices; we could stay here, or we could move home.
After praying and really trying to be logical and rational about it we realized that we could find success and achieve our goals in both places. We did not feel a strong pull that either one was more right than the other. However, moving to Colorado makes us both SO HAPPY.  
When two options are there, and both are equally good- I firmly believe the right thing to do is to do what makes your family happy! 
So, Colorado friends, make some room for us in your lives cuz we're comin' home!!!

We move the last day of January. 
Colorado = Happiness

After he gets his license, you should check out Colorado Home Realty. My mom works there as well as President Lindahl.

Great news! I think it's always good to be close to family, especially when times are tough. We live in Colorado, and our adoption took place here, so let me know if you have any questions about that!

I found your blog on the Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope website.

I am so sorry for your loss. My daughter, Lily Katherine, was stillborn at fullterm on March 16, 2010.

I LOVE Colorado! I live on the east coast, but just spent a couple months there and am hoping to go back for longer. It's such a beautiful state :)

I'd love to have you follow along on my blog as well:
