WE ARE MOVING TO SALEM, OREGON!!! While I was in Virginia, Paul received some very, very, VERY good news. He was offered a job at Garmin to work as an Aviation Software Engineer. Of course he said YES to the job offer and he is so excited to start working for such a great company. This is the dream job that Paul has been waiting for ever since graduation {...10 months ago...} and it was most definitely worth the wait. I guess this makes us official adults :)

Paul's first day of work is March 5th, so life has been a little scrambled as of late. We have been figuring out where we are going to live, what day we are going to move, and all that good stuff. We went to Salem this past week and we were able find an nice apartment in a great location. Luckily, we still have a majority of our things in boxes from our last move so that will speed up the moving process. I am transferring to the Big 5 Sporting Goods store in Salem. It will be fun for me to learn the ins-and-outs of a new store and to meet new co-workers. Everything is coming together just as we would've hoped.

It is going to be so cool to go exploring in Salem and find out what the city has to offer. Neither of us has ever lived in a state capitol before...so that will be an adventure in itself. We are excited to find out what the future has in store for us :)
