Just when Asheville was feeling like our long-term home and I was feeling like a “local,” the Lord had bigger plans for the Bridges bunch! With that being said,
Asheville has seen 90% of mine and Chandler’s marriage, including our first anniversary. We moved here just four months after we got married and have not looked back!
In Asheville, we adopted our kitten, Belmont!
In Asheville, I bought a new car and is where we “survived” a global pandemic.
In Asheville is where I grew individually, spiritually and mentally, but also felt closer to Chandler in ways unexplainable.
In Asheville, I accomplished things my younger self would’ve never thought possible.
After all, Asheville is where I put myself out there and started this blog. P.S. – Thank you all for following along with my many ramblings along the way!
Asheville has seen a lot growth, challenge and change for us both – individually and as a couple. It has brought me lifetime friends and a lifetime of precious memories. I wouldn’t have traded this time for the world and selfishly wish it would’ve lasted a little longer!
Our time in Asheville was short, but oh so sweet!
With that being said, I have learned through this move that sometimes less is more. A home, as I stare at some of these empty rooms and walls, is made of the people inside. I am so grateful for my little crew and the life we created here, but more excited for the next chapter.
As sad as I am to be leaving Asheville, home is wherever I am with you. You are the best start to my morning and the greatest end to each day. Asheville has been such an amazing ride and you are to thank for that. We’ve made countless memories here and as hard as it is to be thinking about another city, the Lord knows what He’s doing. Thank you for being a great provider for our little family!
Home sweet, you and meRUSSELL DICKERSON
Ain’t got much, but we got all we need
Wherever the wind blows, wherever this life goes
Baby, all I know, ain’t nothin’ like, nothin’ like
You and me
Thank you to all of our family and friends who are willing and able to help us make the move from Asheville and Charlotte. I couldn’t have imagined doing it without you guys and we are so grateful for your willingness to be the hands and feet, quite literally, to move lots and lots boxes. Y’all are life savers! THANK YOU!
Choosing to say goodbye to this little life we’ve built wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we’re excited for this next season and all of the adventures it’ll bring! The memories are long, the happiness we shared here was endless and the //. Here’s to the next chapter, bittersweet as it might be!
