Travel Log 2005

In August, Chris and I commenced penning a new chapter in our lives – relocating to Washington, D.C. Although we left the towering peaks of Utah unsure of our future, based on miracles which led us here, the move was definitely meant to be.

By mid-July we had no jobs, no apartment, no information about “safe” parts of town and no idea what we were getting ourselves into. We spent sleepless nights wondering how we would pay rent, let alone afford a moving truck to transport our junk to an as-yet-undecided location across the country.
