So we are here in our apartment...alive and well. We have "moved" in, although we still have boxes full of stuff and lots of furniture to buy. It will be a while until our apartment feels like a home, but we can see the beginning and that makes us very excited.
For the past year we have been on the move but have made a 360 back to NYC.
Summary of Past Year:
Summer of 2009- We came out to New York for Pat's internship (not knowing we would be back a year later).
Fall of 2009-Went back to Provo for Pat's last semester knowing we were only there for a few months. Upon arrival our apartment flooded and we lived out of hotels and friends houses for a month and some change.
Winter of 2010-Then a few months later in February, we headed to California with New York City as a possible job in June, but I was secretly hoping Pat would find a job in San Francisco.
Spring of 2010-Obviously, San Francisco did not work out so we drove back across the country to New York.
It has been a crazy year, full of uncertainties and faith trying experiences. There are still many uncertainties in our lives, such as me finding a job and us actually being able to "make it" here, but for the time being we are very happy and loving all the idiosyncrasies of New York.
(Picture above:Our favorite thing to do in NYC is to just walk around and see what we stumble upon. Last weekend we stumbled upon the Union Square Flee market and a street fair. They had these amazing chocolate covered strawberry sticks that I just HAD to have)
