In my last message, I talked a little bit about ‘change’ and how all of us have had to make some personal and business related changes due to COVID-19. I will admit I am completely guilty of not adapting well to change sometimes, especially when it involves my personal life. With that being said, I suppose it is time for me to learn how to accept a BIG life change and adapt to it quickly because my husband and I will be moving to… the hot barren desert of ARIZONA!

I am sure this might come as a surprise to many of you – it did to us as well! I would have never imagined that I would be moving away from Lincoln, a familiar and comfortable place to live and more importantly, a place where I grew up. Lincoln is all I’ve ever known. Although I attended college at UNK for four years, Kearney was only two hours away from home. I am grateful for my college years giving me a taste of what it was like ‘being away from home,’ but still having the convenience of being able to easily come back home on weekends to see my parents, grandparents, friends, etc. Now I get to look forward to flights or a convenient 21-hour drive (one way) to come home!

We are truly excited for this new opportunity and we will miss Lincoln a lot. I am very grateful to have met so many amazing colleagues and friends through Home Builders, Remodelers Council and YBP throughout these past nine years. Becoming an active member of HBAL was one of the best decisions of my career. I will certainly miss seeing all of you at events and meetings and I am sure you will miss my horrible jokes and sense of humor. Who knows what the future holds. Maybe we will get tired of the scorpions (SAVE ME), and rattlesnakes (SAVE ME, AGAIN) and 24/7 sunny weather and you will see my smiling face again someday..!?

If I don’t see all of you before I leave, I wish you the very best and please be sure to stay in touch!
