we finished finals, bought a car, and changed the blog

chris snapped this picture right after i doodled on his hand. it was during finals week and stress levels were up in the sky. not only did we have our tests but we were also trying to buy a car (not exactly the best timing). for two newbies, trying to figure out insurance and registration and all of that adult stuff made things even more tense. chris was feeling a little down about our situation so i told him i loved him via hand writing and i sent him this video thinking that it might cheer him up. turns out i underestimated the power of marshmallows and i was accused of being unfair for showing it to him in the library ;) but we studied hard, we pushed through our tests, and now we have a cute little toyota that runs so all went well!

the other day was our 4 month anniversary. we were super romantic and got our new car checked out at the auto shop. while waiting, we stumbled across this wall. yet again, it had been kind of a stressful day worrying about money and adult stuff so it provided some relief to take some silly pictures. chris put up with a lot that day and i am grateful for his patience. i guess what all of this is trying to say is most days it feels like we're still kids but when life comes at you, you have to open the door and invite it in for cookies and milk. thankfully, having someone by your side makes it a bit easier, especially when that person is chris.

p.s. my little space on the internet changed a little bit. i've been wanting to do it since we got married since this blog is no longer just about me but it remains just a way to keep family updated. now it feels more like "us" :)
