California Living

It's really, really hard to believe that we've been living in Pasadena for over 2 weeks. Since being here, we've managed to slip in few fun things, but mostly we've just been doing the usual stuff of getting settled into a new home and town. We have an incredible "So Cal" view of the mountains. Hopefully sometime soon we'll get the chance to hike in 'em {our friends told us there are over 100 trails through them}.

The view from our patio.

Before our lease began, we spent a few days staying with my sister-in-law and her sweet family in Los Angeles. We are so thankful to have family close by! The favorite part of our stay was the time we got to spend with our niece. She is 8 months old and has so much personality now; she's a lot of fun! The first Saturday in town, we got to babysit her for the entire day.

We are almost completely unpacked, even with our pictures on the walls! {There is a laundry list of additional things we want to do to our new place - maybe I'll share in a later post}. Our new place is approximately half the size of our our place in Athens, but there still seems to be plenty of room here. Good thing we sold, donated, or stored some things a
t our parents' houses. I promise to post pictures soon.

Last Sunday, we were invited by some new friends to a free concert at Levitt Pavilion. Every Wednesday - Sunday, there are free concerts during the summer there. It's definitely a place we'll be checking out again! AND...we're looking forward to hanging out with these friends again soon.

Tomorrow morning we are going to another new church. I'm hoping & praying that we find the right church pronto. We're only going to give ourselves 2 months to find our new place of worship.
