Y’all, it seems like it has been forever since I last posted. Let me tell you, it sure has been a whirlwind these past few months! As you know, we found a condo in Ohio and moved the majority of our stuff over back in July. But, Josh and I didn’t actually move over because we were both still working at our previous jobs. Let me tell you, it’s loads of fun moving back in with your parents after being independent for so many years! Real talk- it was stressful at times because everyone has their own quirks and routines and ways of living, but we both felt really thankful that we had a stable, safe, and rent-free place to stay while transitioning through everything. I started applying for jobs as soon as we had our condo in hopes of getting hired somewhere in Ohio before Josh started school. Weeelllll, fast forward to the middle of August, to having applied for at least 50+ jobs at as many places as I could think of and I still don’t have a job and Josh is moving away so he can start classes. You guys, that was SO hard for me. Josh and I have done everything together since we started dating- working together, working out together, eating all our meals together, you name it, we were together. It had already been a huge transition for me commuting to my job in Louisville, but at least we spent our mornings and evenings together. I cried. A lot. Even when I would come stay with him at our condo every weekend, I cried when I had to leave to go back to my parents. I thought it would get easier, but it really didn’t. I know some couples have it way harder and have to live apart for way longer. My heart goes out to them, now I understand how difficult it is! Thank God, we only had to live apart for a month before I finally received a job offer at another pharmaceutical company! I’ve been working there for almost two weeks now and I really like it! The people are all amazing and I’m slowly but surely learning my way around and working through my training. Mostly, I’m just really happy that Josh and I are living together again!!!
Through all this new and unknown, I was super excited to be a part of throwing a baby shower for my sister-in-law this past weekend! My sister worked so hard on coming up with a theme and making all the decorations, while my mom and I bring her vision to life. The baby shower turned out so cute and makes me even more excited to be a boy auntie again soon!
Tell me that isn’t one of the most adorable Peter Pan themed baby showers you’ve ever seen!!! Hurry up and get here, baby boy!
