Thank you, Phoenix

Geez, I don't really no where to start. For the past 3 days, we have been packing like crazy and right now, I'm so exhausted and definitely need some rest, however, I have a lot on my mind and can't go to bed until I let it out.

We are extremely excited because Michael finally got a job after being on the hunt for almost a year. We were both getting antsy and a little frustrated because we finished what we came out here for...school... and didn't realize how difficult it would be to get back home.

I'm so blessed with a wonderful husband who wants to work hard for his family. Michael is now a financial analyst for an expanding medical group in Escondido, California. This company is very fortunate to be gaining such an intelligent, righteous, loyal, and hard working employee.

Although most of our family is in California, I have to say that Phoenix will always have a piece of my heart. This is where we started on our own. We came here just Michael and I with our very little bit of belongings, ready to start our lives together. We knew what our goals were and were determined to achieved them.

While we were here in Phoenix, I reconnected with my best friend, my sis. It is where I built a special bond with my cousin, Sheilia. It is where I met another amazing girl, Camilla, who is now my best friend next to Soin and Sheilia. Our ward was amazing... our doctors were amazing... all our friends were amazing. What's most amazing is that we brought two angels into this world while we were here in Phoenix.

We came here to earn our degrees and then get back home. Needless to say, we succeeded and also did a great deal more. I love Phoenix because of all the beautiful things that happened here.

So now our journey continues...

LOVE you Bianca. SOrry I feel like I ignored you the last few days, I just have a hard time saying good bye. It was great to see you all tonight as you were getting ready to drive off in the Uhaul. You will be missed so much. I can not even describe how much I will miss our walks and talks. You are a great mother and such an amazing example to me. I am so happy you two are living your dream and going back home. Arizona is an amazing place and I feel so lucky to have met you here. See you soon.
