I'm home in Oregon, but somehow it feels like I don't really have a permanent "home" anymore. I knew that this transition would be difficult, but I wasn't expecting it to be this hard. I've been applying for jobs since August and even more now since I got back a few weeks ago. I feel like I just need a job now less for the money and more for the sanity. I'm making my calls, but the jobs are being filled. I'm running out of things to keep me busy and I'm beginning to feel more and more discouraged. Please pray for me during this time. I just want to be back in Alaska, but know that I have to be here now.

The good news is that Halloween is just around the corner and I get to dress up and carve a pumpkin. David and Elena are growing some in our backyard!

The view on a little bike ride of mine. :) Trying to see the good in things right now.

Northern Lights Captured

I have only been able to see the Northern Lights a few times this summer, but the other night was just AMAZING and I had to share these pictures that my friend Tim took with his awesome camera! You can't capture the lights on the camera unless you have a long exposure setting. I am SO glad we could get these on film! I was freaking out! The lights seem like they are dancing in the sky.
Here's a picture of Joey and I. We had to stand still for so long!

That's the moon! 

I just HAD to share these with you all! I hope you enjoy them and I hope I get to see these a few more times before I come home next week. :)
