On the Move...
So we are moving to Whittier the first weekend of December. The apartment Daniel and Bethany used to llive in opened up, and at about the same price of our current place, only with two bedrooms and plenty of other perks, and we are going for it. I am looking forward to knowing people in my neighborhood again, and having people over for dinner without asking them to drive for a an hour or so in return.
The other big reason is... that we’re having a baby(!) in June, and really want to be closer to friends and family for such an important and probably very challenging time. We were planning to move to Oregon this summer, but that will just have to wait another year. It has been really nice to be out in our own neighborhood in South Pasadena for the first year of our marriage, and it is hard to close that chapter. We LOVE it here, but community is more important now, and we are thankful to have one in Whittier-- so many friends and family members that enrich us so much. Here’s to more frequent and sustained enrichment!

Hey Ariana,

We are so happy for you and Jeff in so many ways!

Are you moving to the apartment on Greenleaf, or are you going to be near the elementary school?

Hey, I am really glad you are moving back to Whittier! What fun, and that is a great apartment! so, you will be upstairs above Meg and Murray?

Gretchen said...

YEAHHHHHHH! Congratulations! And I have to say that it will be great to have you two (soon three) close by! I talked to Steve Sundin about that very apartment but I'm in such a good place right now that it wasn't reasonable to move there. Now I know why!!

Hey, I'm so glad for you and Jeff. We enjoyed our time in those apartments, and I'm sure you will too. Two bedrooms will be just the thing for the new baby. I wish we were closer too.
