michigan tour guide.

Geek squad: Jason just got reading glasses
     These next 5 months are going to be pretty difficult and they’re going to feel a lot like last summer, just in a different way. As you know, last summer while Jason was still in school at BYU-I, I was back home in Michigan. Although I had amazing friends to keep me happy, it just wasn’t the same without Jason. Idaho was my new home and that’s where I wanted to be. This summer I will be staying in Idaho, but I feel like it’s not going to be as good as I hoped it would be. This will probably feel like the longest semester of my life because while I am pushing through another four months of school, I will be waiting patiently to be married to Jason. I feel like I’m going to lose my mind waiting! I never thought I would hate saying “goodnight” to someone so much. I just hate having to leave him every night when I’d rather fall asleep in his arms.

     Luckily, in between this semester and the next, I will finally be bringing Jason home with me to Michigan! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to show him where I grew up, to have him meet the people that mean the most to me, to spend time with my parents and Jason together, and to show him that Michigan is not so terrible of a place. Of course, I may have to get out of White Lake to do that. I’m excited to play tour guide!

     Here’s an update on us: a couple weeks ago, Jason and I finally took our engagement pictures! Although it was really windy and my toes were freezing because I wore sandals,
we had so much fun taking the pictures. I promise to get a couple on here as soon as I can.
Recently, we’ve been looking for an apartment to stay in starting next fall. After finding one that met our needs this past weekend, we signed the contract and made the deposit for our future home! We’re pretty excited. The apartment is brand new and is actually still being built; however, we’ve seen what it’s going to look like and we like it a lot. It will be quite small, but with only two of us, how much room will we need? The upside is the apartment will be furnished. I’m so excited for our first home!

     Jason and I also finally picked a destination for our honeymoon in August. We decided to go to Hawaii! It was a tough decision, but we decided it would be best. We really like to have adventures and we just didn’t feel like other places had the opportunities we were looking for (and Europe was too expensive haha). Having been to Hawaii 3 times, I’m really looking forward to going back and showing Jason everything like it’s my second home.
