I have officially moved into my new apartment! I got the keys on July 22nd and with the help of some seriously awesome friends and co-laborers, moved all of my belongings across the parking lot to the new place. It has been a crazy 6 weeks of packing, cleaning, unpacking, and organizing, but I am so thankful! On the night I moved in, we all sat around eating pizza and praying over the apartment - that it would be a place of peace and refuge for those who visit (and future kiddos who come to live). Already there is a sense of peace here. My favorite spot is sitting on my couch, looking out my living room window at the green mesquite tree swaying in the wind.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped with the move, whether it was helping with moving expenses, supporting me in prayer, or helping me lug all my belongings across the parking lot!
