4-Ingredient Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake
A few days ago I wouldn't have wanted to give you an update on our huge move. I struggled to find my place in Raleigh over the past three years and spent a lot of time pleading with God to open a door or turn me around or throw me a rope or . . . something. But year after year there were clear indications that I was in process right where I needed to be. Wait. Wait. Wait.
But then I found out the school of my dreams for the past decade had a graduate school, and then I got accepted into that graduate school. A graduate school that just so happened to be located in one of my favorite cities in the world. Every tiny door that hadn't opened for me was suddenly forgotten as God opened a more amazing door than I'd imagined possible. Grateful, humbled, I committed to walking through that door. But then (fellow believers out there may know what comes next) the last couple of months have been one solid, scary trial.

This is one of those I'm-so-excited-that-I'm-also-kind-of-sick announcements. One of those I'm-going-on-a-big-adventure-and-might-be-crazy announcements. One of those I-haven't-slept-in-two-months-because-I'm-terrified announcements. One of those I-need-to-finally-tell-you-or-I'll-burst announcements.

Mike and I are always trying to be better about making friends. We're two devoted introverts: I have an impressive dose of social anxiety and he just doesn't especially put himself out there. But we both do well in smallish, casual get-togethers. Low-stress environment, simple food, no crazy cleaning frenzies beforehand. My latest idea for one of these is a homemade double-date night: one couple brings drinks and apps, the other provides dinner and dessert, and both play board games while ignoring the pile of laundry in the corner because WE'RE BEING CASUAL, Y'ALL. Or that's the plan anyway.
