Hi! It’s been a while (again) since I last blogged. Life has been busy lately, but I’m hoping to get into a more regular routine within the next few weeks. Here’s a little life update!
I love being married! Jimmy and I got back from our honeymoon on June 22nd and started moving into our house that afternoon. Yep, we bought a little house on “Jimmy’s side” of Pittsburgh (about 50 minutes from where I used to live) and closed on it two days before our wedding. The moving process has been long and exhausting, but so exciting! Home ownership is no joke. It’s a lot of work, but I sort of love it. A lot.
My favorite things about being married (so far): Bible studies together and having memory verses, eating meals together, driving to and from church together, walks around our neighborhood, and having guests over. Pretty much being with Jimmy as much as possible, haha.
We’ve had guests over as much as possible and we really love serving friends and family meals and just hanging out!
Of course there have been challenging times, too. We’re both exhausted from moving, working on our house, and just starting a new life together. It’s that deliriously happy and excited exhausted feeling, if that makes sense. I also miss seeing my family and pets 24/7 and it’s been tough to learn a totally new (to me) area of Pittsburgh. We also had our first middle of the night mishap–Jimmy accidentally punched me in the eye while stretching in his sleep hahaha.
Jimmy has been back at work, and I start my second internship next week. I’m also taking an independent study course online because I still have a few more credits to take until I can graduate from Penn State. It’s been tough to do school work when I’m thinking hmmm I should be mowing the lawn/doing laundry/washing dishes/moping the floors right now, but ya gotta do what you gotta do! I’m learning how to balance it all slowly but surely 😉
All in all, I feel incredibly blessed. God has been so, so good to us and I am so thankful for my husband the wonderful people in our lives! It’s just amazing to think of the many ways God has provided for and blessed us, and I give Him all the credit and glory for everything in my life!
I plan on posting a wedding recap once I have the pictures from our photographer. I’m also willing to do a Q&A post on married life/our wedding/etc. if anyone has any questions. For now, I have to do some homework and then my mom and sister are dropping Brandy and Lola off because Jimmy and I are babysitting them for the weekend! Can’t wait!
What are you doing this weekend?!
