The Move

 view from my window

Hello! It's been so long since I've posted! Last week was spent packing up our little apartment...not too interesting.  Then on Friday night we packed up the moving van and left our first home the next morning.

Since my husband wants to be a Pastor he has to finish his master's degree.  We decided to live on campus, because the campus is located in Marin County (which btw is the wealthiest county in the USA) (yikes is right) There would be no way for any student to live here without being able to live on campus for cheep.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the outside of our little apartment's old for sure.  Then I saw the inside and both the kitchen and the bath are half the size of our previous apartment.  But when we started to unpack everything I saw how everything still fit here just maybe in a different place.  As we set up more and more of the house I started to like where we live more and more.  I think the best part is that we live in's like being at camp but all my stuff is here!  My last apartment had a few patches of grass here and there but that was it as far as nature was concerned.  (Trees make a living space a home)

Anyways my hubs started school Monday and landed himself a job on Tuesday.  I've very proud of him! I, however, have had 2 interviews and still nada :( I'm kind of bummed but I'm going to keep trying!  I'm praying for 2 things, a job, and a friend.  I'm sure that God has plans for both I just have to keep trusting!

P.s. I'm going to send my hubs out to take some pictures because I'm not good at it...more pics to follow.  I've missed you all!


  1. I love the view! May God bring you the answers to both of your requests very quickly. Praying for you!

  2. Glad you made the move safely! Praying with you for a job and a friend.

  3. Love the picture of your view!!

  4. Wow Meg! That view is GORGEOUS!!! You're right, it looks like camp! What a treat! I love trees...they are so comforting, secure, and full of personality. I don't think I could ever feel at home at a place without lovely old trees. In fact, I told my hubby one day that there was one perticular old ironwood tree on our property - and if it ever had to go (be cut down, or died), then I would have to go too :-). So glad to hear you're settling in.- I'll be praying that God will bring a friend your way quickly in your new town! I know how important that is. In the mean time, you have us here on blogland :-) If you'd like to receive some mail at your new place, just send me your address to: I'd love to send you a note (see yesterday's post)! Hugs, ~K

  5. Oh man, I thought I posted a comment here the other day! I'm glad to hear that you're all moved in. It's great that you're around nature. That is so important. Great news about your husband finding a job so quickly too. I will say a prayer for you for a job and a friend. Finding a job always took some time for me too. ..Same with friends.
    Blessings on you and your new home!! <3
