A New Chapter

We have begun a new chapter in our married life, a bit against our wishes, but not without love, hope, and faith. Lisa began her first job as a Physician Assistant with Guthrie Clinic's Outpatient Primary Care Clinic in Dushore, PA. If we thought Brockway was rural, we didn't know rural--until now. The area is known as the "Endless Mountains", and is not quite up to date, technologically. Well, we settled in a log cabin chalet on Beaver Lake, and though it may sound wonderful, it came with it's own challenges! Thankfully, we ended up being the last road in our neighborhood to get high speed internet, since none of this area has cable yet! And after countless hours of cleaning and painting, a few new appliances, and a lot of TLC, the place is becoming our own (visitors are always welcome, and encouraged)!! And yes, we did purchase our first car together-a Ford Edge!

The first two photos represent a "before and after" of our kitchen- we had to do something about that orange wallpaper!

We're trying to get used to all the wood--I think it's easier for Jesse.. but it's cozy. I'm excited to decorate for the winter!

And on my way to work one morning.. there were 22 in total!


  1. Congrats on the new car!! I'm so glad to see things are going so great!! :)

  2. Erin gave me the gory details of the whole kitchen deal. Glad that everything is settling down. The cabin looks really cute Lisa and I know you will have it all decorated and homey in no time (our little Martha Stewart lol)....and you'll be telling the story and laughing about it years from now! So proud of you - love you guys!!! Patti

  3. I love that you are doing this! Congrats on the house/car! You are such grown ups ... I have a long way to go :)
