Life has been a whirlwind these last 4 months. It’s been all crazy and no calm around these parts!
At the beginning of May, my amazing boyfriend proposed to me (another post to come about that)! I’m so excited to marry him and start our life together. He knows how to love me and how to make me feel comfortable and treasured. I can’t imagine a better person for me than Jonathan.
In the next month, my car (Suzi, aka Old Faithful) started having transmission problems. It was sad to see her go downhill after seven years of loyal service. She was my first car in high school, and she lasted me through college and my first years in the real world. But I was so excited to have something shiny and new, with a working air conditioner and power windows! Jonathan and I shopped for a while for the perfect car; we fought off the sales vultures and tried out several SUVs, and we ultimately settled on Dora, our black Ford Explorer. Dora the Explorer is wonderful. I’m so blessed and so grateful.
The next month, I spent my nights packing boxes, organizing everything I own, and streamlining my belongings by getting rid of truckloads of stuff. It’s therapeutic to simplify.
The next month, my two best friends moved in with me. Well, we all moved into a new apartment; it’s a 2-bedroom apartment in a much better location (right next to Central Market, y’all!) Words can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this apartment and living with my best friends in our last hoorah before I get married.
