White Coat Ceremony

Yesterday we had Jeff's White Coat Ceremony. In the morning we had breakfast with all the CCLCM students and families at the Cleveland Clinic hotel. Jeff gave me a tour of the school and then we headed over to Severance Hall for the ceremony. The whole thing was kind of like graduation in reverse. After the ceremony there was more food, which I was very happy about. :)
I'm glad we went because now it feels all official. We're in medical school!

A Small Obession

For those of you who know me well, you've probably realized I have an obsession with crackle. I have been using it in a lot of my acrylic paintings like this one.

So you can only imagine how excited I was when I discovered the cracked paint on our porch door.

I just love living in an old house. It has so much personality. Like these doorknobs. Aren’t they cute! I love the old skeleton key hole. It totally reminds me of Cinderella, which happened to be my favorite Disney princess movie growing up.

As for the unpacking… I’m getting there. And when the house is presentable I will post some pictures.

Hello Cleveland

We made it to Cleveland after 30 hours in the car. We did 20 hours the first day and ten the next. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. We got in on the first of July and ABF was supposed to deliver all our stuff on the 2nd. Well, they ended up bringing everything on Monday the 5th so we had a few days to get creative with our cooking.
I absolutely love our apartment. We have great neighbors living below us with the cutest kids. Our landlords are super nice and even filled our fridge with some food for our first night here. We have a nice neighborhood and a cute backyard. I even got to see fireflies for the first time. Our ward is very welcoming and was eager to help us move in.
There is a lot more I could say right now, but I have a pile of boxes calling my name to be unloaded. Here are a few pictures of our house before we filled filled it with all our stuff.
