100th Post


This is our 100th post. Very cool:) Its also the day that marks two weeks in Monterey. It feels like we've been here longer. Maybe a year or two? We've settled in a lot better than I thought we would and we're adjusting to life here really well. I think its because it suits us perfectly. Its a combination of the places that Leif and I both grew up. Him, in Oregon, surrounded by trees and I in Southern California, never far from the ocean.

We went down to the beach tonight. And while we were running in and out of the cold waves, I just felt at peace. I felt like we were exactly where we are suppose to be. I felt like we were home. Then I thought, maybe we could live here for awhile, not just a year or two, but raise Riley here. On our quick drive home, Leif brought up staying here and raising Riley and I told him I felt the same way. I love moments like that:)!

I also love when I have my own life plans and God comes in and changes them completely. It makes for never a dull moment. We're so grateful to have been brought here and excited for what God has in store.

I know exactly how you feel. I've only been in Quebec for 4 days but it feels like weeks. It's amazing that you and her husband had the same thoughts. I know you guys are going to have great adventures there!

Good to hear! Monterey sounds so nice. Sounds like I place I could get used to (I'm missing the ocean).

Continued peace and happiness to you both. I'm hoping we end up someplace near you in the future.
