These past few weeks since finishing school have been busy! I have about 1000 things that I figured I’d just save until after school, so I have a lot of things that I’ve been catching up on. Scott and I have also recently begun looking at houses! We’re pretty excited about the prospect of buying a house, but since we have lots of time to buy and a relatively small budget, we’re able to be pretty picky (which is good, because most of the houses in our price range are a total mess). In all likelihood, we’ll wait until at least next year to buy, but we’ll see! It’s been really fun getting to look and imagine what it’ll be like to own someday.

graduation photo college graduate

I graduated this month! Pro tip for anyone who’s graduating – it’s so nice to take some graduation pictures ahead of time! Once I got all my regalia, I had Scott take some nice portraits and I sent them to family members who wanted a picture, so I didn’t have to try to find a spot to take pictures after the ceremony (it was dark and so crowded).

Scott and I took a trip into the woods and stayed in a cabin a few days last week. It was a really nice way to relax and recharge, and we got to do some fun things like hiking, picnicking, and eating s’mores!

breakfast in bed

Lazy Saturday mornings mean breakfast in bed. I love breakfast things that are really quick and easy and that don’t require cooking (we don’t have a dishwasher and I don’t like adding lots of extra dishes just from breakfast). Fruit, cereal, kefir (a smoothie-like probiotic drink), and coffee make for an easy and delicious breakfast.
