45 Days Too Late

Travel

Was October 14th really my last blog post? Boy have I been slacking…

Where do I begin? So much has happened over the past month and a half. Like…

…We went to Long Island to see my grandma who was in town visiting my great aunts. This is the house that she grew up in. It has some amazing history, but that history deserves a whole blog post to itself. Maybe at a later date…

…My parents came to town!

….And we went to Cape Cod…

…Where we watched the sun set…

…and rise.

…We watched the Head of the Charles Regatta (the second largest regatta in the world)…

…And ate some lobster…

…Then BK came to town, and we ate more lobster…and that was it. Ha, not really. We walked the freedom trail, spent Halloween in Salem, watched a comedy show, walked around the Harvard campus, and much more…

Then we experienced a snow storm in October! What’s up with that?

…Then came Novemeber and we got our first Christmas tree (we went with this little guy due to lack of storage space)…

…Then came Thanksgiving, which we spent in NY with Jacob’s wonderful family.

…Then we celebrated 6 months of marriage in NYC.

Now back to full sentences! I think that sums up the past 45 days in a nutshell. We’ve loved our time spent with family, friends, exploring the East, and transforming our apartment into our home. Yes- I am still working on that last part. I even made an hour and a half trip to NH so that I could go to a Hobby Lobby. I came home with about 8 bags, and am slowly working on some fun crafty projects (I have already completed 4!)

It seems just like last month that we moved here, but here we are in December! Jacob is already finishing up his first semester of graduate school (go Jacob! :), and i’m counting down the days until we get to visit home (just 23 more to go!) We’ve loved our time here, but it hasn’t always been a walk in the park. We miss our family and friends terribly, and miss the ease of Fayetteville. We’ve really had to learn to adapt to life in the city. It’s a hassle to get anything done around here. I swear it takes all day to run one errand.

As mentioned above, Jacob and I recently reached a big (okay, not huge.. but kind of big) milestone in our marriage; we’ve officially been married half of a year! It’s gone by so quickly, but I have loved every (okay, almost every 😉 moment of it. People say the first year of marriage is the hardest, but if our next six months are anything like our first, then I have no idea what “those people” are talking about! I’ve loved adapting to my role as a wife. Strangely enough, I enjoy managing our budget, making grocery lists, and have even found myself picking up At Home magazine over US Weekly at the grocery store check out line. Every day presents its own challenges, but God is faithful, and always provides. For that, we are so thankful.

Until next time…
