we made it to seattle around 3pm -- roughly 3000 miles of driving complete. it's a relief to have made it, as i was certain there would be at least one car explosion or smoore health & safety challenge. but everything survived, and it appears all the boxes we shipped made it safely as well.

i'm excited for something new here, although my true emotion at the moment is a bit panicky since we don't yet have a place to live and i haven't found a job. hopefully at least the housing situation will be figured out this weekend. i have zillow/craigslist scrolling blisters.
it's been a fun week traveling across the country with james, seeing new sites/states, and visiting with family and friends. it's a weird zone to be in when your whole life is boxed up and life is just kind of dormant until the next phase gets going. james is excited about his new job, and hopefully i will find something interesting as well. in the meantime i'm just so happy to be back in the west and closer to the most important people in my life.
