We have been quite busy the last few weeks with some unexpected decisions regarding our housing situation. About a month ago we started talking about the *remote* possibility of moving to a different part of Bryan. There were quite a few reasons why (living closer to friends/people in our life stage, great time to buy a house, etc) but ultimately we were not in a position where we really needed to move.

After talking to a couple of Realtors, we realized how terrible of a time it is to sell a home in Bryan/College Station (or probably anywhere!). We went ahead and put it on the market with open hands, not wanting to get our hopes up about moving.

Well, less than 2 weeks later, we have a contract on our house!! We couldn't believe it. We didn't get a call the first week but then within 4 days 3 different people came and viewed it and one came again and put an offer down the next day. So, here we are, 2 months (yesterday!) into marriage and are getting ready to buy another house and move. This was definitely not on our radar 2 months ago!

2010 is definitely a year of transition for the Meyers but we are so thankful for this open door the Lord has given. We are excited for where we are headed next. I will keep you updated...but we may be next-door neighbors to our close friends, the Lees! We are so thankful for the Lord's provision way above and beyond our expectations.

Wedding Video and Pictures!

I know this is a bit of a cop-out post, but I wanted to share our wonderful pictures and a small wedding video clip of our big day!

During our reception the videographer (SAM'S Video Productions) had prepared a same-day edit of before the wedding and the ceremony. It was a complete surprise to us but such a fun way to remember such a special day. Here's the clip:

And, here is the link to our professional pictures!
