Home | Surfacing in Durham

Hi friends! I just have a few minutes at our local (yes, I said local!) Barnes & Noble to post a little update. Right now, it goes something like this: 

I love our apartment. It was surprising to me how much I would love our off white walls and white trim.

I still haven't been behind the wheel in N.C., which needs to change because I have no idea how to get places!

We visited an African Anglican church today and loved it. We've decided to go their consistently for the next few weeks instead of church hopping from the start, because we liked what we saw, the people we met, and because we both really want to get integrated into a community as quickly as possible. 

We've been to Super Target every day. Lame, but necessary.

Their are loads of pine trees, which I love, because it makes me feel like I'm in Florida, which is the only southern state I have to compare to N.C.

I have so much more to say, but Seb is getting sleepy. I'll try to get with it and write a more substantial update soon!

P.S. More photos to come! This was the only angle of the house that was tidy and (mostly) finished. It's such a process, but I'm having fun and enjoying our closets!


  1. One word: YAY! Praying for you guys as you settle in!

  2. So looking forward to seeing more! Happy nesting! : )

  3. Love it, Mary! It definitely takes a while to settle in, but it's wonderful that you like it so far. Hope it starts to feel like home soon!

  4. thanks, everyone! it's been fun getting settled in and exploring the area. dawn, when did you guys move? are you all settled in yet?
