It's official!

We are headed to Michigan to work for Ford. Yeah!!! Danny officially accepted the offer today and we should know in the next couple of weeks when we will start. I have already been house hunting online and am anxious to get out there to start in real life, but I have to wait to do anything until the Relocation company contacts us...I hate waiting! I feel like I have been waiting long enough, but circumstances are proving otherwise. I was ready to fly out to MI a couple of days after graduation, but I can't do anything until we hear from Ford.
It is definitely a relief to have a job secured, but now I just have to wait to have a home secured. Nonetheless, we are excited and grateful and curious about our future. We are blessed for sure.

It will be soooo nice to have a relo company take care of all the details...I know Ford is good to its employees--one of my best friends' hubby's worked for them for 10+ years. Congrats! I'm sure it's a HUGE relief for you.

Yay for you guys. It really is a cool place to live. Even though the winters are ccoolldd.

I know of a house in an awesome neighborhood, that would only make for an hour long commute! ;-)

Congrats! What a great feeling for you guys and I am sure you are all so excited. Me on the other hand is sad. It is really hitting me hard that the friends I have made in this ward are all leaving. Thanks for being a good neighbor and for letting my kids invade your yard all the time. I will miss seeing you guys out there this summer but I am glad there are blogs to stay in touch!

There are so many trees, it's awesome! We will for sure have to plan a trip in the summer together to the lake and other fun things!! How fun!!

I am so happy the job has worked out for your family. What a relief to have that part over with. I understand the difficulty in waiting... I am horrible at it! I must admit that I was hoping you would have a change in heart and join us back her in Calif. Maybe in the future?...
