We're Here!

We're here!  Yay!  (and with internet, no less!)

After 7 days with our families and 3 1/2 days of traveling, we arrived in Pennsylvania Saturday afternoon.  Now, Thursday, we have almost everything unpacked and the internet guy came this morning.

The drive up was not too bad at all.  My sister was in my car so she helped me with Jack.  And Jack did AMAZING.  Seriously.  He had a few bad moments (and the 3 1/2 hour ride from DC to Bellefonte on Saturday was rough, but partially cause it was just Jack and I in the car then), but overall he was great.    

Now we are getting settled.  We have taken many walks around our cute town.  I put on instagram a post about how our town is just like Stars Hollow.  And I was only half kidding...


Don't you expect Taylor to lead a reenactment out here on the green?  

This is Talleyrand park, complete with a gazebo, historical trains (Jack is in heaven!), a playground, a river running through it, and ducks and trout to feed.  There are tons of little shops and restaurants around town.  And I have gone into several and asked for take out menus.  We never order take out!  But I guess now that I'm here, I suddenly feel like I am Lorelai Gilmore, looking for Luke's Diner.

Our house is wonderful.  It is huge, which was not intentional.  We had actually never been in it until Saturday.  But we love it.  It is super clean.  The kitchen has fairly new (like maybe a year old?) cabinets that were custom built by the Amish.  We all love it, especially Jack.  When we are completely unpacked, I will put pictures up.

Tomorrow morning I have a job interview!  I have already had a phone interview, and I am really interested in this job.  It sounds like something right up my alley.  So please pray/think of me tomorrow morning.

I have a feeling I am going to love my two years in Pennsylvania.  It is a gorgeous state, especially the area we are in.  We are nestled in the mountains, surrounded by lots of little rural communities (but still close to a Target!).  The nights are already chilly here, and I know that fall is right around the corner.  Y'all better be ready for tons of fall themed posts!
