Settling In and pics of our new life

So everyone we moved! & nbsp;Now we live in a new state (northeastern Oregon) and a totally new environment. & nbsp;We moved mainly because my husband could not find a job even semi close to our home (there are no real & nbsp;businesses & nbsp;in our little town that pay well or even & nbsp;hire), so we had to make a decision. & nbsp;We could no longer afford the massive & nbsp;experiences & nbsp;of the commute so it was move. & nbsp;So Hubby started looking around at places to work. & nbsp;Fortunately & nbsp;for us my husbands skills make it to where we could get a job just about anywhere, but most are in or near big cities which we & nbsp;don't & nbsp;like. So even though he was offered jobs in many places they just weren't right for different reasons. & nbsp;Our biggest priority was going where God wanted us to go. & nbsp;We prayed, our friends prayed, we asked for & nbsp;guidance & nbsp;and affirmations to make sure this was God led, and God was so & nbsp;faithful. When we got the offer for Hubbies new job everything just clicked, and we had so many affirmations that there was no doubt this is where we should go. & nbsp;The company payed for us to move here and we are in a large town small city kind of place. & nbsp;There is way more shopping than our old town, meaning two grocery stores and a dollar store and lots of & nbsp;restaurants! But the main draw for us was the massive amounts of outdoor recreation that is just minutes from our front door.

& nbsp;For those of you who & nbsp;don't & nbsp;know I have spent my whole life in the desert. & nbsp;Yes Washington state has a desert, a pretty big one actually but no one ever really visits. & nbsp;It's nice in its way but I have always wanted to live somewhere green and preferably in the & nbsp;mountains. & nbsp;I love to be in the & nbsp;mountains & nbsp;and forage for berries, mushrooms, fish, hunt, and camp. & nbsp;Unfortunately & nbsp;in every place we have lived we were hours away from any & nbsp;mountains & nbsp;for recreation. & nbsp;But now we are & nbsp;literally & nbsp;at the foot of the wallowa and blue & nbsp;mountains. & nbsp;Every morning I wake up and see snow capped peaks and every day I take my children for a long walk next to the Powder River and marvel and all the natural beauty.

We have already gone fishing and I am scoping out areas for berry picking as the most & nbsp;delicious & nbsp;wild berry grows here! & nbsp;The & nbsp;huckleberry! & nbsp;I cant wait to pick them for pies, jams, and syrups.

I have a great book on wild berries and mushrooms and I am spending my time on learning identification.

We are living in a cute little house with a nice fenced yard only three blocks from my husbands new work so no more two hour commute and all the & nbsp;expense & nbsp;that went with it. & nbsp;So far I love our new town and the people we have met, I miss my garden and fruit trees and our old church family but I know God has great things in store for us here.
