Packing Up Again

Seattle Skyline

The last week has been absolutely crazy. The last month, really. But much surprise has visited me in the last few days. I came home after two weeks traveling to Washington and San Francisco on Sunday. Tuesday, an opportunity to go back to Seattle to work for the rad guys at The City arose. This upcoming Monday night, I'm flying back up there for a month to be their onsite print designer! It's a short-term project, but it's totally a dream come true. The last few days have been spent with much grinning and squealing. Guess I finally get to live in Seattle and live in Phoenix!

I can't believe how perfectly this has all come together. The timing came at a point when my projects were beginning to dwindle down and my finances also. My friend, Sara, is letting me stay with her at her awesome apartment, which happens to be very close to the office. I've already got a great church to be a part of and relationships already built there. I'm already a pro at navigating the King County Metro, so transportation is totally covered. Not to mention work is going to be amazing! I've been a huge supporter of what The City has been doing and it's a huge honor to partner with them in strengthening churches. I get to work with some amazing designers, too. Can't wait to learn from Graham and Joe!

I can do nothing but marvel at God's kindness to me. Getting laid off was the best thing ever.

That is awesome Luz! I am so excited for you. It's been so awesome to see how God has blessed you during your "unemployment".

Say hello to the Mountain for me! (And if you are still there in August, methinks we'll meet.
