It’s been a remarkable summer so far.
Our first summer together has been wonderful. I got a job at a local theatre as a Box Office Concierge / Administrative Assistant and it is absolutely perfect. God provided the opportunity right when I was ready to stop my search and everything fell into place in a way that I know it was Him orchestrating it and not me. I’ve gotten to work during rehearsals, shows, tech weeks, independent film festivals, and more. I love it. And the theatre is close enough to our apartment so I’ve been able to ride my bike to work and that has made me so incredibly happy.
In other regards, we love being married and we’ve spent our free time together riding our bikes to the library to borrow movies, exploring Downtown Chicago, drinking espresso, cooking, baking, swimming in the apartment pool and getting frozen yogurt after, traveling to friends’ wedding, riding the train, and watching Big Bang Theory. For Austin’s birthday, I surprised him with tickets to a Cardinals vs. Cubs baseball game. Naomi and Drew visited us and we ate pizza and played chess and walked around the city. Taste of Chicago was a crazy unforgettable experience. I’ve been running a lot to train for my half marathon that’s coming up in September. My weekend long runs have reached eight miles and I am just amazed by how far I’ve come and am excited about how much further I still need to go. (13.1 here I come!)
Long story short, life is good and we’re really happy. (Living with Austin the best) Our summer has been full of all sorts of adventures so far and the next few months are looking to be just as exciting as the past ones have been. Married life just keeps getting better and that’s an all-around amazing thing.by
