Anyone else still in a food coma from Thanksgiving? Holy cow, I think I’m still stuffed. Two Thanksgivings, one with each of our families made for WAY too much food (if such a thing even exists). I promised you in my last post I’d get you all up to speed on what I’ve been up to/give those of you who are new a little background.
For those of you who are new, here are some fast facts:
- I’m a Wyoming born-and-raised twenty-something
- I ventured to the East Coast to attend college @ Wharton at UPenn
- I graduated in January and have been working as a freelance consultant since
- I married Brandon, my highschool sweetheart, in July, and now we’re partying it up in Laramie, Wyoming while he attends law school
Phew! That’s a BRIEF overview. If you wanna learn more about me, check out my about page.
Anyhow, for those of you that have been reading for awhile/know me IRL…our wedding was absolutely amazing. Brandon and I had a ball spending time with our friends and family, partying it up at the reception, and FINALLY tying the gosh darn knot. We had been dating 5+ years at the time of the wedding so it was about time!
We honeymooned in Scottsdale, AZ, primarily because that was the Groupon getaway closest to us, and loved it. Brandon was about ready to move there. After the wedding and honeymoon, we moved straight away to Laramie and settled in to our new apartment. Since then, we’ve been figuring out our routine and how to do life together.
I work from home, which has been both a blessing and a curse. I love having a flexible schedule; I can work when Brandon has class and be available in the (rare) times he doesn’t have an insane amount of work. As a total extrovert, the downside has been living in a new city with zero reasons to leave the house.
I’ve been SO #blessed that one of my best high school friends lives here in Laramie and has been introducing me to lots of great people. Weekly bible study with her and some other ladies is the only thing that keeps this extrovert sane.
Speaking of bible study, this last year has yielded tons of spiritual growth. After a few years of letting my faith become dormant, 2016 has been a year of waking up spiritually and getting back to Jesus. Working on growing my faith has been a lot harder than I’d anticipated, but so rewarding.
That’s what’s up with me in a nutshell. Getting our wedding photos back on a flashdrive this week (AAAH) so expect a wedding recap post soon, since I was on blogging hiatus/way too darn busy when that went down. Now I’ve got to get back into the work groove after a loooong Thanksgiving break….anyone else struggling? Looks like tomorrow’s going to be a multiple-cup-of-caffeine day.
