We haven't posted in a while because we've both been busy for once!! I started work at Gap about a week ago and I've been getting a full time load there as a part timer. It's nice because it keeps me busy since Nate has been working late in New Jersey the past couple of weeks. He usually gets off around 11 and then it takes about a half hour to commute back to Manhattan by taxi. Once in a while we get to leave for work together in the mornings and it is really nice to leave together, ride the bus together and then I get off one stop before he does on the subway. We've spent a lot of time with our friends Luke and Charlene! They are fellow BYU-Idahoans out here for Luke's internship. We will be sad when they go back to Idaho soon after Thanksgiving. My brother Donny told Luke that he has to find us replacement friends for when they leave. Really we have been very blessed to make friends with ward members and to live in such a great neighborhood since we both get off work pretty late. We are enjoying the fall weather here and looking forward to the Holiday season in New York City. Christmas is going to be a little different this year because it is just going to be the two of us here in the city! We will make it special nonetheless. Not too much has been going on though. We are still adjusting to the city and our new home! Well, I guess Nate has adjusted fine, but I'm still having to talk myself into loving it here everyday. It's a choice! We really enjoyed conference this year. I was starving for spiritual nourishment and it was just what I needed. There were lots of wonderful talks this time. I especially liked Elder Neil Anderson's titled "You Know Enough" and President Monson's titled "Finding Joy in the Journey!" Elder Anderson said, " Faith is not only a feeling it is a decision!" Indeed it is, and this move has been a big leap of faith for us but we are moving forward with faith and trying to enjoy the journey! And by the way, we are ready for visitors at any time!!!
