It’s hard to believe that I’ve been in Kansas City for almost six months. Here is a picture overview of things I’ve done since leaving Norman.
First I moved in and started unpacking.
I moved in on a Friday and attended a cousin’s wedding on Saturday.
Mom, Grandma, and I all dressed up.
On Tuesday I started work. My Mom came up and visited a few times. During one of the trips I purchased a new lamp and chair.
I also got some chairs for the deck.
In September I went to another wedding.
Mom, Dad, and I.
Then in November, I got to do something I’ve always wanted to do…host Thanksgiving!

Christmas Day was spent in Bartlesville.
I'm pretty excited about my All-Clad skillets. I think my brother Pat got some tools.
I made Christmas dinner. It was delicious!
I had another Christmas gathering at my house over New Years.
Cousin Whitney, Pat, Kristin, and Dad.

Now the holidays are over and the new year has began. All in all, I think the move to Kansas City has been a positive experience. I’m still settling in and it doesn’t feel like home yet, at least not in the way that Norman did, but these things take time. I’ve been told that it takes, on average, two to three years before you feel truly settled and connected in a new place. I think that’s probably true and I’m okay with that. In the mean time, I’m thankful to have family close by and a job and home that I like.
