Last week was an important week for us. We finally moved to Boise! For a while I was worried we weren't going to find an apartment but we did and it's wonderful. It's mucho bigger than our last place (ok little mucho not a lot mucho) and exactly what we were looking for. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a much bigger living room. It even has a balcony! [there's nothing better than sitting on a balcony and reading a good book in my opinion]. The most exciting thing about our place is that it has a washer/dryer!! No more collecting quarters for the Laundry Mat!! The only downside is we live somewhat close to a dairy and every once and a while we get a whiff of cow. But really it is only once and a while, I promise!
Here are a few pictures

I already have several ideas in my head for my apartment. Chase laughs at my obsession with craft projects and DIY tutorials but honestly it keeps me entertained. And i think it's more of trying to make a place into a home. But everything costs money so progress is slow. One baby step at a time i guess.
I was worried that Chase would hate living in Boise. He's kind of a small town boy. Our apartment is kind of away from the bustle of Boise so I think he's adjusting well. No more driving to guard every month and that's a definate plus. We already miss his family though. It was nice having them so close. We'll have to visit there soon!
We're hoping that Boise will hold opportunities for us. I'm trying to get into the MFA program for creative writing at Boise State and Chase has a couple of jobs he's going to apply for (fingers crossed!) Hopefully, Boise is where we need to be. We're taking your advice Cindy, we're going to do our best to just enjoy the journey!
|There we go!|
