24 days...

So we're down to 24 days until we get married. Just thought I should update that. And maybe update a few other things. I've been terribly absent from this blog for a couple months now. The reason for that is I moved and I no longer have internet at home. Remember that post about my awesome house? Well I don't live there anymore. It's a long story, but basically the owner of the house wanted us to start paying more rent and we were so not okay with that, so we all moved out. I moved into a one-bedroom apartment by myself. It's actually been really nice having my own place. I was afraid I would not like living alone or I would be scared, but the opposite is true. I don't feel scared at all (I live in a nice complex in a really good fact the town I live in has been ranked the 6th safest city in America) and I really like having my own place and organizing things however I want them and not dealing with roommates being loud and keeping me up at night. Plus, it is making the transition to married life easier, I think. Jared has been gradually moving his stuff in and we've had time to sort through all our crap and organize, combine, discard, etc. Even though Jared doesn't live in it yet, we view it as our apartment.

I finally got my ring. Actually I got it about a month and a half ago, but I hadn't mentioned it yet, so now I am. I knew it was considered an "antique" style ring, but I wasn't prepared for so many comments about it! I receive at least a couple of compliments per week from customers at work and every single one has been from an older woman. I've also been asked if it was a family heirloom or if it was an antique. But I don't mind having an old lady ring. I really, really like it and I'm definitely still happy with my choice.


  1. i got your invite and it was so cute! i also live alone now that i'm a home owner and it was the best decision i've made in a long time! i'm so excited for you guys. you need to take a picture of the actual ring.

    we miss you out here!

  2. I love the ring and I didn't realize it was an antique style; but I love a lot of antique things.

    It's nice you have time to move in and get settled before the wedding. I was dumping stuff off in a pile at our new place the night before the wedding. The place was a mess. It's great you like your new place.

  3. I didn't realize it was an antique style either until I looked at it again and realized that it has some '20's' flare to it. I really like it. I'm also glad that the old ladies like it. I'm so excited for you. I lived in Cory and my apartment before we got married and I loved it. I never thought that I would like living alone, but It was pretty awesome. Now I'm stuck with two other people-but don't worry I really like them.
