A two month vacation!!! Sounds nice, right!?? Well, that is pretty much what it has felt like ever since the wedding! (I know, I have a very rough life)
After Jeff and I got back from our honeymoon, and spent a couple of days in Houston, we flew back to our temporary home in Michigan for the rest of summer.
I say temporary home because with only 2 months left of the summer, we decided it would be the most logical thing to live at his parent’s house in the basement until we moved up to Canada. It was pretty much impossible to find something to rent for that amount of time, and just kind of stupid if you ask me. Some people might have thought, “What? You are newlyweds, and you are moving back into his parent’s house right after the wedding!?”
You got it! And it has been great! I am very blessed that I married a man who’s family I adore and get along with so well. They have done nothing but try to make it as comfortable for
me us possible! No complaints from me 🙂
For Jeff, we were coming back to his home…no real change for him. Just continuing the routine of his summer training like how it was prior to the wedding, except a now it’s a little more intense and he has a wife to come home to that makes him eggs and toast everyday!
For me, it was more like the start of an extended vacation!!!
Here are a few highlights of my 2 month “vacation”:
- Going out to the west side of the mitten for the Coast Guard festivities
- The”I do BBQ” Jeff’s parents threw for us!
Of course this extended vacation has been filled with lots of average things too… like writing a bazillion thank you notes, cooking delicious dinners, changing all of my government documents to my new name, playing a little tennis and golf here and there, and trying to maintain some sort of workout routine (even though the motivation has gone way down since the wedding and I don’t have my #1 workout buddy with me, my mama!).
It’s hard to believe this “trip” is almost over. In just over a week, I will be returning back to Texas to get ready for the trek up to Edmonton! Yep, Dougie Fresh and I will be driving my car all the way up to the frozen tundra…should be quite the journey!
Until then I’ll be packing up all my stuff (again), and trying to enjoy as much of this beautiful Michigan summer as possible! And for the grand finale, Jeff and I plan on going back to MSU on Friday to cheer on our Spartans in both field hockey and football…a double header for us! Then hopefully lots of boat time for the rest of the holiday weekend!
I leave y’all with a Michigan sunrise and sunset!
