Happy New Year, Happy Anniversary

New Year’s Eve – usually that means a quiet night at home. Over the past ten years, I think Michelle and I have been to about three, maybe four NYE parties or gatherings with friends. Most of them – including the Y2K roll over – we slept through. Last year, though, was a different story. One year ago today we completed a two day road trip from Southern California to Kirkland, WA. We walked into a completely empty house with a dog, a cat, a few changes of clothes, and an air mattress.

Hard to believe, but we’ve called this place home for a full year now. And a wacky year it was. Between the two of us, we’ve had five different jobs. This year I spent time behind the counter of Starbucks, behind the heavy locking doors at King County Correctional Facility, and under the sometimes leaky roof of the Purple Door. I got to meet some awesome folks in each of these places.

We do enjoy living here. Some things have happened for us here that are brand new. Some weird stuff related to the way we practice our faith in community. It’s been a lot of fun to watch God surprise us in several ways. We’re looking forward to the challenges of a new year, but know that they will definitely challenge us. More to come later.
