Reality Show Life!

By: Alexandra Holmes

Oh man, does this ever feel good!

I have missed getting to come on here and write, I think of stuff I want to write about all the time and after awhile it builds up inside and makes me crazy...but that's not a huge leap.

I have been SO busy the last few months. I started a new job in September, my dream job actually, but after only a few months it began to weigh heavily on me and my family. I had no time to do anything and everything was falling behind and I was never seeing my boys.

After a lot of thinking, talking, crying, laughing, and drinking we decided to make a change...a BIG CHANGE!

We are packing up our horse and buggy and moving our crew to Alabama! My husband has some great family up there and it is an opportunity to make a whole new life for our family. We are starting off up in the woods and will hopefully settle down near there. I can't hardly wait to see the boys explore the woods and play with so much room to roam.

It will definitely be an adventure... Finding new jobs, new school, a house, and getting settled in a totally new place. I am filled with joy, hope, and a hefty dose of trepidation. This is one of the first times in a long time that I have been very hopeful, and positive about our path but I am also nervous about being away from my side of the family. I have always been either down the street or at least an easy drives distance from my parents and siblings but like I said this is an adventure and all adventures have some difficult spots.

This morning as I was laying in bed surrounded by all four of my boys I realized that we have the makings of a pretty darn good reality TV show. A young family with four small boys leaves the big city in search of a new life in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains. Tune in to TLC Tuesday night for the premier of "Holmes in the Hills". Sounds good right....we definitely have the antics for it :)

Well stay tuned...this adventure is just beginning and I plan on writing down the whole darn thing...except anything that is unflattering about me of course!

Thanks for reading!
