we did it. we found an apartment after much searching. january in mn is apparently not the time to be on the hunt for an apartment, but we found one one we like. it's charming. and, while it's not portland, which has to be put on the back burner, it's our home. we're together and happy and we're blessed with so much joy in our lives.
by the way, stopping for a bite to eat really helped the search. it at least made it more fun.
onward ho goes the job search. wish me luck!

We were gifted a new game, called Askew, over the holidays and we busted it out on New Year's Eve. That's me and Emanuela studying a tricky move. Basically, you build a structure by placing metal rods one by one. A lot of people compared it to reverse Jenga. It was a huge hit and so much fun.

I will honor each day this month of January by not complaining. I will appreciate and be grateful for everything I have been blessed with. You never know what's around the corner or hidden in a seemingly unpleasant event or happenstance. Just let it be and keep rollin'. Won't you join me?

I hope your 2011 is filled with joy and happiness! A new year feels refreshing and I can't wait to see what the future will bring.
We went to visit this splendid, LED-wrapped oak tree by the Minnesota River last week. It was amazingly bright and splendid.
