Arrival in Evanston

We have been in Evanston just over a week now, and we've been very lucky with the weather. We have had one rainy day - and the morning had a really violent storm that knocked down MANY trees in the neighborhood.

The courtyard of our new home. The building happens to be a historical landmark in Evanston, and is named "Castle Tower."

I am very happy with the movers that we used. Olympia movers were based in Watertown and then they used Wheaton to actually ship the belongings. There was a lot of stress surrounding the move, but now that it is over I would gladly work with any of these people again.

We were very impressed by the skill of the driver, Bob. I am still amazed that he managed to turn this truck around in a residential neighborhood!

We have been making progress unpacking, but there is still a lot to do. The kitchen is probably 75% set up, but at least we are able to cook for ourselves! We hope to be completely set up by the end of this week.

Can you believe that we had over 6000 lbs of stuff?

Did you take any pictures at our wedding? Please send them to us!
