We made it!

August 20, 2020

Alex and I are officially moved in to our apartment in Redmond, WA! The trip went incredibly smoothly, and thanks to the help of our dads, the move-in process was quick and painless (despite a near-100° day this past Sunday.)

Unpacking also began earlier this week. Our apartment is really starting to feel like home!

We’ve even done some exploring—trying a delightful dumpling restaurant nearby for takeout, meeting one of my cousins in the area for a socially-distanced walk in the spacious Marymoor Park, and visiting the Bellevue Botanical Garden with my dad (more photos to come in a later post.)

We’re still getting settled with our new jobs this week, but here’s a long overdue batch of photos from the final days of our journey out West:

I was so excited to capture a shot of these sunflower fields in SD! It was overcast and gusty that morning, but the weather on our road trip was pretty much perfect (not too hot!)
Watch out for rattlesnakes! (Spotted at a rest stop in Montana.)
The view from our hotel window in Spokane, WA. The hotel was nearly brand new and provided us with much-needed rest and relaxation.
On the last leg of the trip, we stopped at another scenic overlook of the Columbia River. It was a breeze to get home from here.
Let the unpacking begin!
