I'm happy. Are you happy?

Jumpsuit (ahh sold out! but here are a few similar options: here, here, & here).

Life is faster here. We knew it would be. 

6:45am rolls around the same time every morning, shocking I know. I slip on my pixies and throw my bedhead into a topknot. I’m on a 3-day streak by now. Coffee in hand, we drive together to work/school. We stand at the busy intersection by our parking deck, like real city people, and C kisses me goodbye on the crosswalk. He’s wearing his favorite blue pair of scrubs I pulled out of the dryer last night. 

Don’t forget we’re gone this weekend. Oh and next weekend too. 

I work, he learns, I cook, he studies. We watch Survivor over Trader Joe’s dumplings layed out on TV trays. Because it’s classy. And after that there’s laundry and cleaning and that other part-time job I have and hi we’re in a brand new city so we’re exploring our hearts out!

What about our friends coming into town that one Friday this month? Does that air mattress still work? Also did you call your mom back yet?

Our old dryer starts buzzing indefinitely with no intention of stopping. Dramatically taunting “your clothes are dry gosh darn it come get them already!” Fine. I’m coming. But first I roll over and yawn into the dark as we tell our hi’s and low’s of the day to each other. 

I really like it here. Do you? 

It’s faster and fuller. A bit sticky to get used to that rhythm again. But recognizing that tension was half the battle I think. And you know, all the people we love are closer. Hours away, not days. We have a church (!!!). I have Auto Bell. He has Panther games playing at every restaurant nearby. And we’re exactly where we need to be. So we're full in the good ways.

I'm happy. Are you happy? 

He says prime-time-ESPN-HD-happy. Because of course he does.
