It is finished.

(Well, sort of. I still need to finish unpacking, but...) This past Sunday, Luke and I, along with two of our best friends, picked up a 17' Uhaul truck, packed up our 2 bedroom apartment, and moved out to Camp Zephyr! Yes, I am officially a "camp wife," I live in a town of 735 people (census 2000), and I now drive an hour to work one-way everyday. Yikes, right?!

Now, you're probably thinking, "How did Sara go from city-girl-New-Yorker to small-town-country-girl?" Well, no worries. I'm still a city girl at heart and plan on moving back as soon as the Lord's work through Luke and I in this chapter of our lives has been completed. So for now, we have been called to live and serve at Camp Zephyr. For those of you that don't know, my husband is the guest services manager at this beautiful South Texas Christian camp/retreat facility. This is where we met, fell in love, and spent our summers working as college students. We took engagement pictures on the camp grounds and were married about 20 minutes from its gates. To say this ministry has helped raised us is an understatement. We are excited about God's plan for us (full-time) at Zephyr!

{The beautiful sunrise that greeted me on my official drive into work from the new house. South Texas is breath-taking at sunrise!}

As soon as I get some wall decor up, I will post pictures of the new house. I need to do a little work before then! I am pretty proud of our progress though. I've cooked two meals in this house, while Luke has set up our internet, Netflix, Hulu, AND has put together all of our new Ikea furniture. He's one stud of a husband. :)
