This past weekend we celebrated 2 years of marriage! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 2 years already, yet at the same time it feels like forever ago that we were engaged…or dating…or single! I think that’s probably a good sign. I love this quote below about marriage – not sure where it came from but I like the perspective!
To marry is to choose:
Closeness over Distance
Companionship over Detachment
Relationship over Isolation
Love over Apathy
Life over Death.
We were able to go away for the weekend (thanks to a good deal found on Groupon Getaways or Living Social) and spend a couple of nights in Palm Springs. It might seem crazy to go to the desert in the middle of summer but we had a great time! The 114 degree temps had dropped and honestly I think it might have been cooler in Palm Springs than it has been in Pasadena. We enjoyed the resort’s pool, tried out some local restaurants (I think we had the best Chicago-style pizza I’ve ever had outside of Chicago!), wandered around the shops and overall had a really relaxing time.
Than is super busy with his PhD program and doing research for a professor. He has 2 weeks of all-day intensive classes later this month with lots of assignments to do and books to read in between. Let’s just say those stacks of books that would appear around finals week during the masters program have nothing on the stacks of books that have now invaded our living room!
I’ve recently joined the leadership team for our Sunday School class at church. I’m going to be coordinating service projects for our class and I am very excited about that. We’re going to be starting with serving the Sunday Community meal – surprise surprise!
