My birthday is in less than three weeks and that's crazy to me because I've been counting down since like...February. I'm excited and bummed at the same time. Excited because it's my birthday...duh. And I'll officially be in my 20's (finally). But, DJ will be gone at work and I leave exactly two weeks after my birthday. Which doesn't make sense. Like, how is it so close already? This summer seriously flew by way. too. fast.
There is one good thing about me leaving though. Besides the fact that I'll get to see Carlin, Carissa, and Kailey when I get home, that is. What could be good about another long and tough airport goodbye? Well, it's our LAST ONE! After we say goodbye at the end of August, we'll never have to again. DJ will head home around December and then we'll finally drive back together and start our life. Goodbye long distance relationship, can't say I'll miss you.
We've been doing fun things around here. We took a trip to Helena the other day. It didn't have as much to do as we thought, but it was still fun to explore another city. We walked around downtown, had lunch, visited the prettiest cathedral, and went to the state capitol building. Oh, and the drive there....holy shit. It was honestly so beautiful. I envy the people that have homes along the Missouri River. So beautiful. Oh, and we went to the "mall" in Helena. People warned us about it, but we wanted to check it out. I figured it couldn't be worse than the mall here in Great Falls, but oh was I wrong. We entered the mall through JC Penny. When we looked to the exit to the rest of the mall, it literally looked like a horror movie. The lights were dim, there was no one walking around, and there were NO other stores in sight. WHAT! Maybe I'm a mall snob because we have so many good ones in Phoenix, but still. This was pathetic!
We've been working on our new place more and more. We're almost done with our picture collage in the living room, so I'm excited about that and I'll post pictures once we finish! I'm really loving our house and I'm glad it's the place we get to start our lives together!
So, that's what I've been up to. I'm loving being here with him. It's honestly perfect and it makes me SO excited to move here!
Also, I'm taking a break from my Passionfruit subscription. But, if you're interested in a design or advertising, please email me!
I missed you guys, really. What have you been up to?
