Yes, that title is for you, Mr. L.  And so are these pretty kitties.
The past few months of my life (who am I kidding?  More like the past year!) have indeed gone by in a whirlwind.  I was relieved to graduate from the University of South Alabama and receive my Bachelor's degree in English, hours and hours of arduous wedding planning finally reached its culmination on one beautiful May evening, Mr. Landrum and I finally got to take our incredible trip to Europe for the honeymoon, and I packed up all of my belongings and left the sanctuary of the parents' nest for my new home in Florida.  Separately, each of these things would've probably been much easier for someone to handle, but when you mush them all together like I happened to do, it becomes quite dizzying.

For the past few weeks, Mr. L and I have had some precious time to breathe, relax, and fully enjoy the time we spend with each other and the rest of our loved ones.  It is certainly a blessing that his job has been so lax at the moment and we haven't had to deal with the stresses it will soon bring.  But I won't lie -- it has been difficult adjusting to living with this person I've technically only known long distance for the whole of our relationship (about three and a half years of being 7 hours apart + 2 years of being one hour apart).  We have by no means reached the light at the end of the tunnel, and we know that living together will continue to be a challenge for our strong-headed personalities.  But we also know that all the work is completely worth it.

For now, we're settling into a routine of sorts that we probably shouldn't get used to.  Mr. L is working day shifts (whoo!) and I'm trying my hand at this housewife thing until I'm able to find some sort of suitable job, hopefully with my degree.  We're able to go to Mobile every weekend (yep, every weekend since we've gotten back from the honeymoon, to be exact) to see our families and soak up as much quality time as possible before we move again in a year.  It's going to change soon though, and right now, I'm left to ponder how exactly this next year will pan out for my husband and myself.  I hope you decide to join us for the ride!
