House Hunters

Our pre wedding house hunting did not prove as promising as we had hoped, though it did provide a lesson in the frustration of short sales. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise because just a month after our wedding, we found the perfect place. We are so excited about it! It is in Oro Valley, near Amanda's family, and it cuts Jason's commute quite a bit. We can't wait to make it a home! It will be the perfect spot for us, and eventually an ideal spot to start a family. Such a blessing!

Bon Voyage, Elder Dillon!

Tuesday, July 14 was such a mix of emotions. Elder Brett Dillon left Phoenix for Johannesburg, South Africa. He will spend the next two years serving in the Cape Town South Africa mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a missionary. It was so hard to say goodbye, but we are all so very proud of him and truly excited for all the experiences he will have in South Africa. We spent Monday night up in Phoenix before we had to take him to the airport, and it was a wonderful chance to spend time laughing together and having fun before we would be separated for two years. We got to go back to the gate to see him off, and we enjoyed those last few moments. Now we can't wait to talk to him for Christmas!
