An update...

So some people ::cough, cough:: have been requesting an update. I wish there was something interesting to tell but life these days is pretty slow. Our days consist of Kevin going to work and Carli applying for jobs. We're down to less than a week until we can move into our new place which we are so excited about. The close quarters of the hotel room are wearing us down. It'll be amazing to live in a place where there are actually rooms and I can't see the door from the back corner of our place. But we're still happy and healthy. Since there isn't too much to report I have posted a comic we found last night for your reading pleasure. Enjoy.....

1 year down....eternity to go....

Yesterday was Kevin and my anniversary. It's hard to believe that a year has already passed. And yet, at the same time, it feels like it just happened. We had a great time reflecting on our wedding and all that we have accomplished in the last year. It has been a wonderful year and I know that things will just get better and better. Not that everything in life will run smoothly, but as long as we have each other, everything will be fine. I'm so grateful for Kevin and all he does for me. There is no one else I'd rather share my life with. I love you Kevin.

Greetings from California!

We survived! And Carli only had two melt downs! I think I'm finally learning how to deal with change.

Kevin and I left Provo on Wednesday. We decided to do the trip in two days so it wasn't so stressful. That meant we weren't in a huge rush to leave town. We checked out of our apartment at noon. Unfortunately, I realized half way through Nevada that I left my sourdough start and beef base in the fridge! Oh well, it wouldn't be the first time I've done it. Anyways, we stopped at Costa Vida so I could have one last pleasure, stopped to get Sensuous Sandwich so we could take a little of Provo with us, and hit the road. The wind was crazy, but other than that it was uneventful. We stopped for a relaxing night in Winnemucca.

Thursday brought In-N-Out. That was exciting and comforting. We finally arrived in San Jose and were excited to see how familiar things were. I think that helped a ton in making the transition easier. We also visited with our good friends from last summer. That also made things so much easier. I can't tell you how much it helps having some friends in a new area.

Friday brought apartment hunting. That was a shell shocker. Both Kevin and i came back pretty discouraged. Our attempt at trying to save money was completely thwarted. Several of the places I wouldn't even get out of the car, and a good majority brought back very real memories of walking around downtown Houston. We basically came back to the place we were staying and had to re-think our entire plans. We threw around many ideas and ended up with a game plan.

I'm pleased to report that this afternoon we signed a lease for our new apartment! Both of us felt really good about our choice and the more we were playing with the idea, the more sense it made. It puts us in the same ward we were in this summer, and the best part of all is we are in the same complex as our friends! Things do have a way of working themselves out.

So Kevin and I are happy and well and looking forward to starting this new chapter of our lives. We love you all and thank you for all of your help and prayers.
