So, life is crazy.
The past two days have been a whirlwind. We’re in our new hometown this week looking for a place to live before we move in a couple of weeks. What was once akin to a mythical place is now a reality finding its way into my heart. I must say I am falling fast for this town. It’s kind of hard not to when everywhere you look there’s stuff like this (forgive the lack of artistic touch here):
That’s Lake Whatcom. I will try to remember to take more photos for you this week. It’s supposed to be sunny the whole time we’re here, so I’m hoping to find a way to get a shot or two of Mt. Baker. This is seriously one of the most amazingly beautiful places I’ve ever been… this place has everything: mountains, water, trees… (As I typed “this place has everything” I had a Stefon moment. If you know what I’m talking about, I love you even more than I already do. And if not, I still love you.) We are definitely going to have to find some outdoor hobbies so we can enjoy the majesty of this area.
I’m also falling fast for the people here. We’ve been welcomed with huge grins everywhere we have been so far. I’m sure we will meet a grouch or two eventually, but people have been so nice to us. I have really felt at home much more than I expected. We may have even already found a church home. God is so, so good.
I’m hoping that I can remember the way I’m feeling right now when the going gets tough… because I know there are going to be those moments ahead. I might even throw a fit at some point and ask Aaron why in the world did he make me move here. But God has been so faithful to me every step of the way of this adventure that I know as long as we continue to follow His lead, I will be just fine. I’ll have some emotional ups and downs… that just comes with the territory of change. But as much as I already miss my Nashville home, this is becoming home for me slowly but surely.
Now if we can just find a place to live within the next four days… 🙂
