This past week has been a whirlwind!
Things are happening much more quickly than we anticipated, but it seems that we'll be moving to Alameda at the beginning of June.
We saw a place on a whim on last Sunday morning (we had been looking for a place, and then stopped looking for a while, and then saw this place on CL last week and decided just to go to check it out) and decided to apply and see what would happen.
We found out we got the apartment (the ground-level unit in a duplex) on Monday and then it's been a week of figuring out if we really like it, if the neighborhood is ok, if we should look for something else, seeing and liking and not getting another place, driving out to Alameda to see it again...
In the end, after a week of praying, listening, questioning, answering, emailing, driving, trying not to stress out, we have decided to go for it.
And now we're moving in 3 weeks!
So, while Jeff was gone this week for work in San Diego, amidst all the crazy, I've been looking online for inspiration for our new place; smaller space, wood floors, no separate dining room, low ceilings, 2 full bathrooms... All things that make me excited to purge and simplify...
God is good and we are excited for this new adventure! Life will for the most part still be more or less the same; we'll still be at Christ Church most weekends, we'll still invite our friends over (though they're probably less likely to come across the bay to play), we'll still be the same ol' Lockes. We'll just be a little more tan from being out of the fog and probably sweatier too. :)
