On my way to the airport to pick up Matt, I realized it was going to be one of the more interesting days of my/our life.
I always thought our wedding day would create the feel of never being the same again, but instead I think the day he moved in will go down as the craziest!!! I remember telling my mom on the phone that I was a getting a house guest that was never going home. OMG. On the other hand, Matt was thinking, “I’m visiting my girlfriend….forever.”
He’s been here almost three weeks now. We’ve been long distance from the start, so starting and ending every day together now is just CRAZY! I know he feels the same. I can see it on his face. Most of all finally being together is fun. The simple and easy things are fun.
We’ve been busy making my apartment feel like ours, with Bridget’s help, of course. Those two are slowly making friends.
While I’m at work right now, he’s busy hanging framed pictures and planning out a big gallery wall on our main wall behind our couch. Have I mentioned we are living in a one-bedroom / 700 square feet apartment. The lack of personal space really is quite funny. Poor fellow can’t really get away from me, not that he wants to, but still, there are moments that he would prefer some quiet. Nope. Only when I’m at work or sleeping.
There is so much to share about these last three weeks where I’ve essentially been blank on my blog, but I prefer to leave them for us and our memories. Too much to tell. Though, from here I’ll start sharing some of the funnier moments of learning to live as a couple together in the same city. A city that really is new for the both of us. So much to explore!! We’ve only started checking everything out here.
I snapped this picture of Matt at the Walker Art Museum. Modern art makes for such good conversations. He, however, doesn’t love taking pics, so I have to get creative. As you see here.
