This weekend Drew is coaching at a lacrosse tournament in Charlottesville, VA. I had every intention of going until I realized that I'm being observed (oh, the joys of teaching!) first thing Monday morning and that we wouldn't be back until 11:00 or later. Boo...

Just thinking of Charlottesville brings back fond memories of the summer after college. I'm still hoping we can live there some day...

My, how he's grown since this picture was taken!

We're Married!

Feeling the urge to share the joys of being a newlywed and answer the infamous question, "How's married life?," I decided to create a blog to share with family and friends. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy sharing.

We've been married 2 months and 18 days today. Not long to those that have celebrated golden wedding anniversaries, but an eternity to those fighting fatal illnesses. In the past year, we have: graduated college, started new jobs, bought a house and gotten married! All of these are things that I consider to be pretty big milestones. And, amazingly, we've done it all together. Our wedding programs said, "Today I will marry my friend - the one I laugh with, dream with, live with, love..." and it's true. Drew is my best friend and I can't wait to spend forever with him. Each day brings new laughs and dreams. It's hard not to be excited to see what the future holds.

They say that the first year of marriage is the hardest. If that's true, then we've got it made! I couldn't be happier...
