Our New Life
When I was growing up, it was my dream to live in Atlanta. After eight years of living there--three of which were spent sitting in traffic instead of actually living my life--we began looking for green pastures. Honestly, pale green would do in order to trump the concrete jungle.
So, we settled on Boise, Idaho. It really wasn't that hard since to decide since it had everything we were looking for--a slower pace of life, a smaller community, a great church (the Boise Vineyard), and activities outdoor galore. After some prayerful consideration, Janel and I felt like this community is what the Lord had for us next.
Instead of fighting traffic in the ATL, these days I ride my bike 5.5 miles along the Boise River on the city's Green Belt. Here are a few pictures from our apartment in the morning as Janel and I sometimes get out the door early enough to watch the sun rise.
Janel took these shots. I especially like the first one of the sun cresting over the mountains of the Boise foothills with the biker speeding away.
So, check back in from time to time for updates on the Chatraw family in Idaho.
