We made it!!

My oh my, where to even begin..

Well, after thirteen hours on the road yesterday, we finally made it to Gig Harbor, Washington, a nice little suburb about an hour south of Seattle.

And would you believe it, there isn't a cloud in the sky today!

Since we got in after dark last night, I hadn't yet caught a glimpse of the Puget Sound. So when I woke up this morning in the sunroom of our family friends' bayside house, I was thrilled to open my eyes to this view.

I've already been told that the door here is always open, and I'm looking forward to making a return visit when I need some respite from the big city.

We'll explore around here a little today and stay one more night before I move into my apartment tomorrow!

Though the physical journey is just about over, the spiritual voyage seems to have just begun. After 13 days on the road, I am pooped! But unlike every long trip I've taken before, the end doesn't mean coming home. It means unpacking my life in a city I've still never laid eyes on before. This is a concept I'm still getting used to. I can't wait to make new friends and start my internship, but I'm also still wrapping my head around the fact that all the family and friends I've ever had are now a 5 hour flight away.

Still, as I've said so many times before, I take confidence in the fact that I am right in the center of God's plan for me. Already, so many things have fallen into place, and I have no doubts that I will continue to be surprised by the way things work out. Thank you all for your prayers and words along the way, I'll continue to keep you posted as the journey continues.


  1. Sarah, it looks beautiful! My aunt went to the University of Pudget Sound and loved living on that part of the West Coast. Enjoy your time; it is bound to be fruitful, especially if you're following the Lord's guidance. Thanks for the updates. I love hearing about them. Good luck in Seattle!!!!

  2. Okay, also, when you drive back across the bridge, look to your right and yell "Hi!" The Zeeck parents will yell back. You may not hear them, because traffic is loud.

  3. It all looks so pretty! I love all fo your pictures!

    Can't wait for some more updates my friend :)

  4. Rachel told me about your blog since I live in Seattle!! Looking forward to following your new journey and hope you LOVE the northwest!!
