Two Months Later

Hi everyone! As of TODAY I've been married for two entire months. That's 9 weeks, 61 days, 1,464 hours, 87,840 minutes, 5,270,400 seconds of living a life-long dream. And here I am, right in the middle of that dream. As the time passes, I'm more and more grateful to get to share life with this man. The best moments we've had are not in pictures, but I do have some other documented highlights I wanted to share.

We moved into our apartment in downtown Kirkland.
This is our view! The Olympics are straight past the water.
This was a huge answer to our prayers. It's so much better than we could've hoped.

Which would make this our front yard. Not joking.

We had a perfect honeymoon in Cabo.
For that we have to thank the Willis', McCuen's and Somers.
They made sure we had the best trip ever.  

After we got back, Jeff got into intense tour preparation mode.
So it was nice to take a break one night and see a great show at the Taproot theater.
We went with PK, Ash and Riley.
I couldn't believe I'd never been there.
The performance was an hour and a half dialogue between two actors. So impressive.
Thank you, Eric and Laurie for those tickets!

And then the MC tour began. (This photo is from Monroe.)
The play that Jeff wrote and directed (with Mike and Riley Walker) has been a complete success.
I'm so proud of him, and want to see him produce all of his ideas someday.

Jeff hit the road with the MC's on May Day.
That day, I attempted to meet some of our neighbors by hanging flowers on their doors.
I met Lucy from the 1st floor! She's a professional cook and is going to make us dinner soon. 
Tamales! YUM.
What a sweet lady. I can't wait for that meal. 

While Jeff's been gone, I've taken time to catch up with friends.
It's been so fun!
I have some great people in my life who are an amazing support to us.
We are so rich. 

I turned 32 on May 10th!

Last week I took a plane ride to North Carolina and met Jeff on the road. 
It had been 17 days without him. TOO LONG.
Thank you to PK & DeeAnn for the trip!

We led worship together at The Worship Center in Durham.
I got to spend time with the rest of the MC group - who are all just so wonderful.
We both feel really blessed to be able to join up on the road and do what we love together.
It was perfect timing.

Who took this picture? Ash?

Ever been to Waffle House? They're everywhere in NC!
We went there at 1am one night, and I ate the best waffle I'd ever had. With grits and bacon.
Does anyone know of a place that serves grits in the NW? 
Anyway, someone needs to start a franchise in downtown Kirkland.

Which brings me to today. I'm home now.
Spring is here, with warm, wet rain, and peonies.
It's our two-month anniversary!
And Jeff gets home soon.
I'm keeping myself busy with painting our apartment, finishing up my name change paperwork,
coming up with some good, healthy recipes for our new eating plan, and doing some reading.

Love to you all.
Adventure isn't missing.
