Claremont, California

Loyd and I made our move from Provo, Utah to Claremont, California about...1 1/2 weeks ago. We left Provo at about 5:30am and pulled into our apartment complex in Claremont at about 3pm. We rented a 16 ft Penske truck with a car tow. Yeah, it was a bit stressful driving with all our belongings and our car and a big fattie truck. But we made it.

Loyd's friends here in Claremont helped us unload our truck. They were great. We even had the little kids helping us. It took maybe 20 minutes to get everything up to our apartment. I don't even want to think how long it would have taken with just me and Loyd.

For the next 2-3 days we unpacked and tried to get everything organized. Then Loyd got sick. Now...we're about unpacked and organized. It might take another month or so to be completely finished :)I can not wait to not be moving anymore...or at least have less stuff to have to move.

When we got here the temperature was in the mid 70's, now it is high 40's and raining. Apparently we've some kind of noreasterly affect. Yeah, i don't know.

The college campus is nice. I love walking around the neighborhood looking at all the amazing houses. I'll get some photos for sure. I walk around and say over and again "I could love in that house. I could live in that house. I could live in that house." Hahaha.

The ward seems really nice as well. It's not so large that you feel like you get lost, but not so small that each member has 3 callings. And its nice that the Bishop was the 2nd councilor in Loyd's singles ward out here. It nice to already have a good relationship with the bishop.

I miss my family in Utah and also the comfort of being in the same place for 7 years...but...I am excited to make new friends. Now, its time to get a job.

  1. Yay, I'm so excited for your new adventures in Cali. Keep us posted and do some fun exploring. I'll live my "no kids" newly married life through your eyes. Ahhh, what would that kind of freedom be like? I'll keep dreaming!
