We Survived: The Move up to Reno

Well, we finally made it up to Reno. We're still settling in, but I promise more pictures and updates soon. Here are some photos from our trek up.

Goodbye apartment living!

Our new kitchen is coming together!

My mother-in-law came up with us to help us get settled and it's been so helpful! We have all of our furniture moved in, but we're still looking for a kitchen table (which I think I found on Craigslist that I'll re-paint), a china hutch, and dining room chairs. So far I'm really enjoying it up here, despite the warm weather around 3 p.m. It's really quiet around our house, there's lots of trees, you can hear crickets and frogs at night, and everyone up here is incredibly friendly and nice. I haven't been around downtown and the casinos yet, but there are some really nice places closer to our house.

This next year is definitely going to be an adventure!


  1. YAY! You made it! You're kitchen is gorgeous, I can't wait to see the rest of your place. Ellie must be SO happy. I can imagine you are planning to adopt 4 more dogs already...

    Happy you're happy!

  2. Such a great view from the backyard! Love it. :)
