Success in C-ville

Dear Family and Friends,

Dara and I are pleased to announce that she was offered a job at the Hope Cancer Center here in Charlottesville. We feel grateful that everything is comming together. I'm still working out everything for getting into school in January and finding employment. One thing we're enjoying is time off and time to ourselves. After going non-stop for a while a vacation in our newly established home was long overdue. Thanks to both of our parents we were able to get settled in our new home and what I enjoy about it is that it really does have the feeling of home a place just for Dara and I and our family to be. We love it down here so far. We have already made aquaintance with some nice people in the neigborhood and the ward down here. One thing that we would like to do is see the natural bridge. Its on Dara's list of things to see.

hahahahaha my heart is tickled....remember this post? Well here is my other half...

A Project

Ryan and I spent a couple of hours about 3 Saturdays ago working on a rocking chair. My parents had given us a rough looking chair and we thought it would be a good idea to refinish it. It was fun working with Ryan because he is a hard worker. We sanded the chair, stained it, and put on a shiny coat. It will be a nice addition to our new home:)




We definitely have skill in our family:)

Excitement is in the air!

We are getting ready to move. We couldn't be more excited. Ryan has one final left to finish today...I have 12 hours of work left (and counting down)...not that we are counting down. We are not sure what to expect as life moves forward, but we are excited to move forward together:) We have furniture for our duplex and are looking forward to decorating and adding our own flavorrr to the place. We have many adventures ahead of us and we are grateful that we still be near our families. I just had to write about our excitement:)
