Can I just say, between comments and facebook (yes, facebook) and emails and messages, you guys are such an encouragement to me (!)? Really, truly, I'm glad we have moved at this time in history when I can feel connected, even on the other side of the world.
Today has been better. It's the little things, isn't it, that make a day feel better or worse? Amazing.
Things I'm grateful for or just enjoying...
:: our short term apartment. Super cute and perfect for this time. Love it and thankful. It brings much comfort.
:: the random comments Evee makes about many of you, as if you are so close and in our everyday (like about Ms. Kathy's dog).
:: driving around in the awesome car we are borrowing from friends, stick shift but with my left hand and no power steering. It was my first time and I was sweating and when we arrived back home Clint said it was like driving with a new teenage driver. Thanks babe.
:: we have a few dates on the calendar to hang out with people (and by hang out I mean meet them). We will slowly get the feel of this city and learn what it's like to live in Christchurch.
:: the mountains are amazing and so close. It is beautiful here. The stars are unbelievable and you can see the milky way. So clear.
I'll stop there, though the list continues in my head...
Much love to you all. Thanks again for being who you are.
