Zach and ShaNae invited us to come to the DC temple with them last weekend--we were really excited! It isn't too easy to get there with public transportation, but they have a car and needed to take the trek anyway. We made it there in two hours and Kade and I got to do a session while the Noyces' went to a temple sealing! We are grateful for them and all they do for us--and we loved the company along the way. Wish I had a picture of all of us, but there will be more fun times to come!

Well, I decided that it is time to update our blog since we have now traveled home from Italy for the holidays, and gone right back east to settle into our new home in Philly! It was nice to be back in Utah for Christmas to be with our family and friends. We had a few people ask us when we were headed back to Italy... we wish!! When we arrived in Philadelphia, we moved into an empty apartment with not one piece of furniture. We rented a car at the airport and after we dropped off our luggage, we headed straight to Bed Bath & Beyond to use the gift cards we received from our wedding. What a blessing it was for us to have those, we are very grateful! Here are some pics of the place all put together. It still needs a few more items, but at least we aren't sleeping on a blow up mattress anymore and standing while we eat our cereal!
Still looking for a duvet cover, but my blanket works great for now. We got our bed frame for $45 at Ikea--score!!
That little white table was previously there, it is hiding an air conditioner.. I think. Slowly but surely it is starting to feel like home. We love it here--except for the humidity that comes along with the bitter cold when you step outside to go anywhere.
I rode Kade's bike around the other day filling out job applications and I actually interviewed and landed one. We are excited to start having a real income again, and I am excited to work as a Nurse Assistant again. As much fun as nannying was for me in Italy, I am excited for the 8 hours shifts and a busy schedule. Kade is back in school and focusing on Summer internships. Here's to our next adventure in life!
