we'll leave the light on for you...

everyone, this is our house that we are renting in reno.
house, this is... everyone.

so, we made a very quick trip to reno this weekend with the intention of finding where we were going to live. we thought it would be not too hard, as we had been doing our research online and through friends etc.
it was hard.
we arrived at our hotel late saturday night, and were back in the car at 8 oclock sunday morning for a full day of driving all around reno. we wanted to get a feel for the different areas and neighborhoods, and look at some houses. also, as we were leaving monday at like noon, we kind of were under a crunch.
eight hours later we were still driving around, screaming at each other off and on, and feeling yucky about our life in general. you know when you look at a house and you imagine your life there and you want to throw up? yeah, that was us all day.
at about 4:30 i had to pee real bad and wanted to go back to the hotel... but tyler wanted to go drive through one more neighborhood. tyler won (big surprise).
but guess what happened? we started driving into the neighborhood and immediately had a different feeling than the one that had been with us all day. we were in love. it was a neighborhood we could get on board with. we got so panicky/excited. tyler swerved the car to a stop on the side of the road and announced that we needed to say a prayer, and that he would say it.
he prayed that we would be guided to the place that we were supposed to be, etc. we said amen, pulled back onto the road, and literally 10 seconds later were in the driveway of this house looking at the for rent sign in the yard.
our mouths dropped open and we knew it was no coincidence.

i just feel so happy.

it's really hard to feel nervous or scared about a move like this when every step of the way, things have happened like this.
when you know that you are doing the right thing, everything just kind of falls into place.

by the way, we are moving this sunday, nov 15th.
