I have been the worst blogger ever. I wonder how many times I've said that on my blog. Without my own computer though, and always using my iPhone, I forget so easily to update! I'm sorry all!
Things are just things here. Working, making food, getting paid, spending money. :) The job is going well still, can be difficult at times, But I'm a grown up, so I'm working through them.
Our apartment is still wonderful and slowly being filled up with things I love! It's so exciting how it's all coming together! We take lots of trips to IKEA!
