7 months...

... since Jason and I got married! It seems like just yesterday we were counting down the days till we tied the knot. The days go by much faster now. Here are a few highlights of our first few months together:

June 5th, 2010
We had an amazing week in St. John for our honeymoon
(many thanks to Jason's parents!!)
We lived in Lafayette from June till the end of July. I got a job at Logansport Memorial Hospital and began school at IUK. Jason worked at Purdue in Hillenbrand Hall. 
On July 23rd we celebrated with Ross & Kate at their wedding
At the end of July Jason's parents let us graciously let us stay with them for two weeks while we were apartmentless :)
p.s. yes, this is my side of the room.. j's is much neater
We finally found an apartment! We moved in on August 11th.
Moving Day
We picked the hottest day of the year! It took 3 cars, 1 suburban, 2 trucks and a large trailer to move all our stuff.
We celebrated my birthday a few weeks late because of all the mayhem. We enjoyed a nice day in Indy at the IMA, the Apple Store, and ate dinner at R Bistro. I ordered my first alcoholic drink as a 21 yr. old and didn't even get carded!
In September Jason bought this car from my brother, Jacob. Jason uses it to drive to and from work. Oh, and in September Jason got a job as a CNA at Woodbridge Health Campus!
In October we enjoyed my fall break by spending some extra time together. 
I went to the harvest party and...
our family's thanksgiving without Jason because he had to work. 
Here Jason is decorating our first christmas tree!
Christmas with my family
New Years Day: Jason and I made a formal dinner for our parents. It was a lot of fun!

It has been a fun, busy time! We have learned a lot about each other and have grown so much closer. I am thankful for the wonderful man the Lord has given me and I look forward to the future we get to share together :)

Well, the end of my christmas break is drawing to an end. I tried to take it slowly but it still seemed to go by so fast! Though I am sad it is over I am looking forward to May - only 122 days till I graduate!!

Pin It!
