spun 360.


we made it! (and finally have internet access. hooray.) the move to idaho was a big success, thanks to our awesome team. we are still thick in boxes, slowly making this place into a home.

we really love it so far. our lives have spun into brand newness and we've been kept busy. it has been strangely nice to be living off the grid, so to speak. unplugged, with just d and me. we have gone on exploratory walks (this photo was taken the day after we arrived, only a few blocks from our new place). we have seen a movie in the local theater, set up a baby crib, organized my closet (and said goodbye to all my skinny summer clothes, which will have a nice long stay in storage), gone to the post office (several times), visited the library, chatted with the old lady downstairs, unpacked all our dishes (yes, now i fully admit, dan, you're right. i have a lot of [lovely] dishes), bought a phone cable at Lowe's, spent hours on hold with Qwest, watched a fuzzy version of the idol finale, witnessed a buffalo cross the street right in front of us (in grand teton national park), and devoured dan's favorite pizza in the whole world on our day trip to jackson hole.

adventures are abounding.
life is good.
