so, if you remember from roll call, april totally sucked except for my sweet bach weekend, which made up for everything all year long! but may, in striking contrast, is much better than the papers and projects of april. this month represents many great things. my birthday. our wedding. finishing a semester of grad school. my birthday was really sweet and totally special, but very low key. grant knows how to make me feel celebrated. and i got to talk to some of my very favorite ladies. xoxo. i got to hang out with nids and take her to the air port and spend some time with a great new friend, kate altmix (check out their website here). my family and i are moving my house (my life) into mine and grant’s apt. so much fun! it makes it feel real: bringing all our stuff to one place we call home (or soon will call home). i got an internship with a sweet historic home in roswell (1.4 miles from our place. yay! check it!) and i’m really excited about starting. that means: school credit plus experience plus an “in” with people that could potentially hire me equals eeeeee! (steph, you’re my fave; that’s a shout out to you xoxo). we’re just tying up loose ends: wedding programs, rehearsal dinner invites, new addresses for a few of the wedding party, and choosing scripture and music. it’s so much fun. and a dear dear friend of mine just got engaged too, mary catherine caldwell, and is getting married to syman (love him) october 4th. this is truly a season of love. i couldn’t be more blessed. wish us well on setting up shop with the help of the ‘rents! can’t wait to see our place full of furniture not boxes.
