Something from Dave

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Andrea does most of the posting here, but I thought that I would take the time to post one of my own blog entries. Afterall, I’m the ‘behind the scenes’ guy who takes care of the all the technical stuff for Andrea on the blog. I enjoy that kind of stuff anyway.

As we approach the one year anniversary of our wedding, I look back on an incredible year. It seems like it has gone by quickly, but we have done a lot! You can look at our photo gallery and get a taste of what we did.

The two main highlights of the year have to be home ownership and our cross country road trip. With the inflated housing prices and the then yet to come doom of the mortgage business, we didn’t know what was going to happen or even if we would find a house. When the first two homes that we put offers in on didn’t work out, things looked increasingly glim. However, God had a home in mind for us and everything worked out well.

After we settled in, we drove over 8,000 miles driving from coast to coast. We spent some time in Illinois (with Andrea’s family) and Idaho (my family). We saw lots of things and had lots of experiences. If I have the time some day, I should post a photo diary. In the mean time, you can see lots of photos (though just a sampling of the 2,000 pictures that we took) in the photo gallery.

We are grateful to God for bringing us together and giving us the wonderful life that we have together. We have grown richer with each experience that we have had this past year. I can only imagine what it is that we have ahead of us!

Photo gallery updated

While our blog entries might be sparse since June, you might have noticed that we do have full photo galleries up so at least you can SEE what we have been doing since then.

Let’s get this going again!

You might have noticed that he last entry in the blog is from June. Well, it’s not that anything hasn’t happened since then, but we have been so busy that we never wrote any entries. Since things are slowing down once again, it’s time to start the blog again.

What a few months it has been! Since our last entry, we have purchased and moved into our new home, unpacked two moved worth of stuff and merged all of our separate belongings into one. We also managed to sneak an 8,000 mile, cross country road trip in there too!!

We’ll try to add some entries to update everyone on everything that we have done as well as keep you updated on our current events.

Take care and God Bless!
