The northward journey has begun.
I’ll be honest – the past 7 ½ weeks since we got married have been a total whirlwind! We honeymooned, we attended camp staff conferences, and between those two things, we were on the road for a month. We returned to Tennessee and settled into our first home, which we stayed in together for a total of about three weeks. We began the process of learning how to live together as husband and wife. We spent Christmas and New Year with my family. I spent a couple of weeks sorting, prioritizing, and purging all of my worldly belongings, and yesterday we packed – or more like crammed – all of our things into our little Honda for the move across the country. We officially moved out of our apartment last night, and this morning we hit the road.
Tonight we’re at our first stop of many along the journey to Alaska – a relative’s home in Pennsylvania. We’re taking nearly a month to get back to Juneau, visiting lots of people along the way. It’s the journey that counts, right?
Yes, it’s been a whirlwind, and it will continue to be for the next few weeks…months…maybe years! But the whirlwind is full of blessings and good times, too, as well as craziness and exhaustion. It’s all good.
Please be praying for us as we travel, and stay tuned here for road trip stories!
