We'll take the world together, we'll take 'em by the hand

First, the news. In an effort to maintain at least some income, but focus mostly on finishing my degree and our new life together, I'm working as a substitute teacher and as a babysitter for my graduate advisor and her husband. It's not what I want to do forever, but it will do for now!

Also, I'm getting married NEXT MONTH! It's next month already! Yay!!!

And now for another thing I love about Blake. He loves to hold hands and is otherwise not shy about showing affection, even in public.

As you know, we held hands on our very first date. The next day at church, we held hands too, even though its very popular for people to date in our church in circle and not make any show of it. We were happy and didn't care who knew it. And we still hold hands as frequently as we can.

I love how our hands fit together and I love how his hand feels in mind. I never want to let it go.

We also draw on each other sometimes. As two graduate students, we often have writing instruments in our hands and we're silly, so temporary tattoos and love notes it is!

That last picture reminded me...

We told the girls we're planning on going to DC to see Amanda. We asked if they remembered Amanda.

"No," they said.

"Panda?" we prompted.

"Oh. YAY!" they said.

So...there's that. :)

I'm glad you two are happy. So glad!
