moving to NYC has been a great experience. we planned for a couple of months at the beginning of the year, took a leap, and road-tripped our way to Manhattan in April.
we do manage to have a lot of fun. I post a lot of those fun photos here.
we are best friends. we live in a small apartment. we see it all.
we react to each other. we annoy each other. sometimes over and over again.
but then remember we’re on the same team and we lovingly make up.
we (hopefully always) learn something.
we laugh a lot. we support each other. we love more than ever before.
it’s a cycle! and our relationship gets stronger each time. I believe that’s the key. we don’t break down or pull away. we communicate. we come together and we grow.
we are approaching our 2-year
wedding marriage anniversary, and I fall more in love with my husband everyday. he’s my favorite person in the world, and we’ve been through a lot in our relatively short time together – 4 years this October.
during all the stages of our relationship – starting with a year of long distance, followed by a move to Belize, the unexpected loss of his dear father, a period of profound mourning and painful uncertainty, followed by a slow, steady rise to the realization that devastating sadness brings beauty, growth, and strength…
if you recognize it and embrace it.
so that’s what we’re doing. and we’re living a life we love. in a city we love.
it’s been a great 4 months in NYC, B! excited to see what the next 4 bring…
p.s. today is my sister’s birthday – love you, B! <— there are so many Bs in my life
