One Year

This week marks one year since we moved to GJ. It's been a generally good year. We have great jobs here. We go to church with great people. We are exponentially closer to my family than we were in Texas, although we miss Jordan's family a lot. We found our kitty here. 

This next year I hope to take advantage of more outdoor activities here. Hope to be brave and make more friends. Hope to make our home even more of a place of rest and comfort for us. 

Let's have another good year, Grand Junction. 


  1. this is so encouraging. my husband and i just moved to grand junction 3 months ago, and it's been hard making friends. we're from southern california, so we're far from everything we know. it's encouraging to see what a year here has been like for you. :)

    1. We should get together some time. :)

    2. I would love that! that would be so fun :)

  2. Can't believe it's already been one year! One friend at a time, ya know. : ) It's amazing the way a new friendship can invigorate your soul.

  3. gj is my place of birth, but i have never returned. i heard someone say there are a lot of trees, is that true? all i know is they banned pit bulls, haha. but i feel like i need to go back on of these days.

    cute cat.

  4. It's encouraging to hear that you have settled in so much after a year! I just did the opposite and moved to Texas, and it's been hard meeting people and such. But your story helps me.. it will just take time. :)

    Also, beautiful photos!! Love that guitar.

  5. I just moved to a different state. We haven't been here a week, and I'm already nervous and doubtful of meeting friends. Ah! Good luck to the both of us.

  6. Love your kitty. Reminds me of my own little, Monster.

  7. Well, I'm certainly glad you moved here. Can't believe how quickly that year went.
