Packing, packing, packing! We are less than two weeks away from our big move and we CANNOT wait. When we moved out of our first apartment into our current apartment, I remember feeling sad, even though it was just right across the hallway, it was our first place as a married couple and it was special. We made memories there and I was sad to leave. We've been in this current apartment for about 7 months and my emotions are the complete opposite. I'm READY and thrilled. :) This condo represents a lot of new things for Jon and me. --- It's funny how excited we are about some of the small things like stairs, two sinks in the master, and a water hose. :) --- That aside, this is a special time in life and I am looking forward to July 27th!

Snapshot(s) of the Week: 1// Celebrated my 24th birthday on the 7th. 2// I'm a cold-natured child. 3// Sweet gift from the beautiful Melisa came in the mail this week. 4// My adorable parents in 1984.

3 Things About Yours Truly:
* I have lotion that smells like cupcakes sitting on my desk at work.
* Last movie I saw was: "The Amazing Spiderman"; so good!
