An Answer To Prayer



Most of you don't know this, but for the past three years The Beard has been applying to grad schools. Particularly grad schools on the East Coast. Thus far our hopes and dreams have been thrashed and badly beaten. Last year's denial was especially bad. We've felt, lets just say skeptical, about the chances of our dreams coming to life. But all the while we have been determined to keep faith that God has plans for us. Not just any plans but the best thing, the right thing for us. And as always, He has been faithful. This last Friday morning we found out that The Beard has been accepted to the grad program at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA.




That's right friends! The Beard, The Bird and I are moving to BOSTON!!!!




I've never been there, but I couldn't be more excited about this new adventure. We will be moving at the end of June {less than three months away!} and there is so much to do between now and then. Packing, finding a house or apartment to rent, finding the right moving company/truck, choosing classes... SO much excitement!




So if you have any tips or hints about the magical wonderland I am about to make my home, do share! And please pray for us as we embark on this new path God has so generously laid before us.

  4. Yea! I love Boston! My father grew up there and I'd love to live there someday....

    The only advice I have is.... find an apartment with a physical parking place so you don't have to move your car/get towed during the winter weather.

    And you can probably get hooked up with a pass for the T, so you won't even have to drive very much.

    And you're close close close to CT and NYC.... although NYC is more exciting then CT... :(

  16. East s-IIIDE!
    I've been behind on my reader, and come back to this! Much congrats to you and him (and the tweet). I love that you see God's hand in it.
    God had us do an L.A. to Virginia trek two years ago. I've always been a west coast gal, but I've really enjoyed being on the east coast. The beaches here are a bit of a joke in comparison to cali beaches. But I think that's my only complaint. And ~Boston~?? Hello, that's going to be sweet. I'm excited to see what influence Boston has on you, and what inspirations you find.
    And the move? Give yourself a ton of time to get from point a to point b if you have time and money to do so. Consider the extra cost of a PODS container to get out of driving a moving truck. For one, it eliminates the stress of someone breaking into the truck while you're at a hotel (had it happen to us years ago in Arkansas). And secondly, you have a lot more flexibility in where you go, where you stay, and what sightseeing you get to do along the way. I could go on about PODS, but it'll just start to sound like I own the company.
    Yay east coast, but I will say VIVA LOS DODGERS! Down with the sox!
    ;)
