A Place To Call Our Own

It has been fun living for free, eating for free, doing laundry for free and even having two cars, but it seems as though our time is up, and we are embarking on "our" life here in California. We put a 72 hour deposit down on an apartment after we attended the ward in which we would be in. We went to two different wards on Sunday after we found 2 apartments that we really liked. We had a hard time deciding because the rent just seems so insane, but we keep reminding ourselves that Devins paycheck is going to be huge compared to what it used to be and that we can afford it even though it seems insane. The apartment is in Rocklin and will be about a 15-20 minute drive to get to Devins work depending on traffic and lights. We will see if we can make a decision, just wanted to give a quick update.

You're right about insane rent in California - especially after living in Idaho... Remember those crappy apartments in Utah where we paid $90 a month? Even though rent/mortgage is a bit pricey in California it's totally worth it!!!
