2 years...

...have flown by.

It seems like only yesterday we were barely dating and so very very young!
This picture is from my Jr. College graduation... (we had been dating for only a year!)

And then just after I graduated from Cal Poly you asked me to marry you and I said yes!

And then a mere six months later (and 2 years ago today) we became Man and Wife, linked together forever in our love and God.

It has been such a fun ride, and I love looking back and seeing just how much we have grown in our relationship, our walks with God, and in ourselves.

I love you Babe! Here's looking forward to the new adventure we are beginning!

PS. We have been together as a couple for over 6 years now!

Master's Degree

Did I mention that my husband graduated with his Masters Degree in Computer Science?

There were doves that flew out and over the crowd after the "Big" ceremony in the football stadium. This is the best picture I got of them...
The Computer Science graduates (at least the ones that participated in the departmental ceremony) Can you find Kyle?

I am so proud of you Babe!!!!
Love you and all your quirkiness!

5 boxes

We have decided (meaning I suggested it would be a really good idea and Kyle figured he would go along) that we are going to pack 5 boxes minimum each day for the next 1.5 weeks. If we do that we will be more than ready when the movers come to load up our truck and we will be able to get everything out of here and have a wonderfully empty apartment to clean for a week before we officially move out on July 5. We got 9 done last night in about a half an hour (just books, DVD's, video games, and CD's so it went quick). I would say we would be packing all weekend, but we have a wedding to go to, that Kyle is in, so no luck there, will just have to pack extra hard before and after to make up for it!

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

So, Kyle has his thesis defense in the morning (prayer would be appreciated, it starts at 10) then a final from 7-10PM (what kind of a horrible time for a test is that?!?!) and then graduation on Saturday with both of our families coming out!! Wow, 8 years after he graduated from High School (He graduated when he was 16, little smarty pants!) he is graduating from college with his Masters Degree. Two years after we got married we will finally be done with school and we will move forward with our life...

That moving includes literal moving, from our life here that we have come to love in SLO back to the Bay Area where our families are. We move in 3 weeks, crazy! Between graduation, moving, a wedding Kyle is Best Man in, and packing, there is just so much going on in the next 3 weeks. The stress definitely piles up on me, I have been trying to slowly begin to pack things up and because Kyle has had so much work to do for his thesis it has pretty much been all me. Can I just say... Packing sucks!!!! I do know that this is going to be one of the easiest moves of our lives, still only the two of us, moving out of a two bedroom apartment, easy, right? in a sense... but it still is no fun.

::okay, apparently this is turning into a poor Carrie post, please disregard my whining; I will try to be a bit more upbeat now::

So, we are super excited to be moving back near family! We will be about 10 minutes from my family and about 30 minutes from Kyle's family. My brother's school is about 1 mile from us, so he can come over and hang out after school! ...when school is back in session that is...

Searching for a new church will be a bummer, we have really come to love Grace!!! Kyle's parent's, and my parent's churches are both 30 minutes away from us, and we have really loved being in the same community as our church here, so we are going to look for something as close to our new home as possible. The nice thing though is that we know the area already, and know the names of some churches that are good in the area, so it won't be too hard (I don't think...)

I can't wait until I get to decorate my new home! I have all these wonderful ideas in my head, we will see how many of them translate well... Lindsey and Lisa have some amazing eyes for simple and chic! I love their style! I want them to come and help me garage sale and flea market and make my home look fabulous! I already have some great ideas for painting a couple pieces that I have. Someday I will have brand new couches and a dining room table with matching chairs and a "real" bed frame and matching bedroom furniture, but until then, I will dream and plan... ^_^
