    Oh girl. I can't imagine. Just hold on, you're almost there. Life's a big adventure, right? Sending you all the vibes for a semi-chill 11 days and a new home city without too much snow.

    I am so excited and nervous and anxious to find out, too! I wonder where you'll end up…. I'll send some warm, positive, southern vibes your way! (Although I'm in Ohio and it's really not THAT bad, haha.)

    I can't imagine the uncertainty! At least it's almost here – I can't wait to see what's in store for you!

    I would be biting my nails, cleaning the house, and keeping busy so I wouldn't dwell on it as much! You got this! You can get through this!! =)

    Love the gifs you choose! I'm laughing in my cubicle b/c seriously these are the best! Love the Taylor Swift one and the MIB! =)

    Hopefully there's a tiny bit of excitement mixed in with the anxiety? I mean at least in 11 days you WILL know right? You've got this, everything will work out!

    First of all I will say that I'm praying and thinking about y'all during these few days! Secondly…I have to say that these GIFs NAILED IT. You definitely won't get sent somewhere snowy since you probably won like 100 gold stars for this funny post šŸ˜‰

    Oh you must be so nervous!!! But you're handling it like a champ! And btw, I'm still rooting that you get matched somewhere in Maryland šŸ˜‰

    I think you totally handle the winter we just had here. It's 65 degrees in early March. We really only had snow 3 times and one was the blizzard that was fun and beautiful – because everyone just stayed home šŸ™‚ I can't imagine how stressful this waiting is, but you'll get through it and end up somewhere awesome. I just feel it.

    Hopefully no matter where you get sent you can fall in love with it! Here's hoping you don't get sent somewhere too snowy!

    How exciting!! Husby was poached from his last job (almost 2 years ago) and we moved someplace I NEVER expected (Alabama!) but it's been such a fun adventure. Sending happy thoughts your way šŸ™‚

    I can't imagine how stressful it is for you guys to not know what the future holds until match day. Just know that where ever you guys go next will be amazing because you'll be together and with little man. Sending prayers and *hugs* your way!

    I can't wait to see where you are matched to, but I totally fear going to a snowy tundra. Sending hugs your way.

    OMG girl, I can't even put myself into those shoes. I need lots of time to come to terms with my moves, lol. I hope you don't get moved to a snowy tundra, BUT, in case it happens, just think of all the hot cocoa you will get to consume and the snowmen you'll get to make šŸ˜‰ lol! Thinking of you & sending lots of good vibes!

    I mean, as someone who lived in Houston and then went to Wyoming, even if you do end up somewhere snowy at least your get to take pretty pictures of the snowy trees, have an excuse to drink more hot chocolate, and see your son & dog play in the snow. And then you can make plans of the next warm place you want to live <3

    Ahhh I can just imagine all these feelings! The uncertainty would be so hard. Can't wait to hear where you guys are headed to!

    Just think about how much fun Jack will have if you move to a snowy place? haha. You got this! šŸ˜‰

    I can't even imagine how nerve wracking it has to be! The silver lining in all of this is that y'all will be together and it's only for the short term!

    Oh girl I can imagine it's a stressful time. I have a feeling it will all work out. šŸ™‚

    Hey! Great post I just came across
    your blog and I love it! It would
    be amazing if you could visit my blog too.

    Oh girlfriend…I can relate to this post so much. This is exactly where we were this time last year–so uncertain of everything! I did think about you last night on my drive home. I could really use a local writing friend who just gets it…so of course I'm hoping you land in CLT šŸ™‚ Keeping you guys in my thoughts and prayers as you wait (patiently) šŸ˜‰

    This post was too funny… I am so stressed for you!! I feel like this about halfway through the hockey season when pondering the year after – but I think there is so much more anxiety when you know exactly when you'll find out! It's so hard not to think about. I lived in Rochester NY which is the 2nd snowiest city in the US for 7 years and I promise it's not that bad! You will always be able to find something good wherever you go!

    I can't imagine the anticipation you both must be feeling. I'll be hoping for a warm climate for you!

    I can't imagine what you are going through. I hate now knowing the future! I know it's not the same, but we are currently waiting Ryan's next placement, but at least we know what state it will be in šŸ™‚

    I love this! Snow is definitely easy to deal with and sometimes you have winters that aren't even that snowy. There is zero snow on the ground right now in Minnesota. šŸ™‚

    Well, there might be snow in some places, but not all over. šŸ™‚

    Oh my gosh! I don't know how you are handling this at all. The anticipation for something this big might actually be life threatening to a Type A person like me. Can't wait to find out though!
