Day 28: Crack is Wack!

Well ... it is!  Don't do drugs kids... if you do you'll end up being stoned statue ... hahaha, get it? Corny!

Today the weather in Melbourne was amazing!  So we took the opportunity to explore Brunswick St. in Fitzroy.  It was full of very interesting little shops and people.  More photos coming soon of our Brunswick St. treasures.

Day 27: Lemon Lime Thai is Fine

We had been craving Thai food for quite some time, so we went out after I got out of work for some drinks and some Thai!  We actually saw the Cookie Monster step out of a cab tonight.

Real quick... let's talk about "date night" -- real quick, I promise.

Fellas ... "date night" is NOT
          ... saying "Hey, want to grab a quick bite?"
          ... going to see the a new movie and saying "Want to go?"
          ... spontaneously going to dinner while you are already out running errands together
          ... road tripping to see family.

"Date Night" IS declaring a night a "date night" getting a fresh cut, possibly a new outfit, shaving... and ladies, it is getting your hair done, getting a new cute outfit that shows off your body, smelling good, getting your nails and toes done......  Date night is leaving your celli at home, forgetting about Facebook updates....  and then going out with your man as if it was the first or second time you are ever seeing him.  Try it one night, and you'll notice the difference.

You don't do that?
Well, maybe you should.

Day 25: Ordinary People

From Diana:
I still have John Legend on the mind.  Today I was thinking about all the love we have received about this blog.  I have to be honest and say that I'm surprised and thankful!!

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are not claiming to know it all about relationships or marriage.  We have only been married for 6 months and in this relationship for 6 years.  We are ordinary people just sharing what we have learned and what our opinions are. Please don't think we are talking ish like we are the best couple ever in life.

  • We do know that Adonis and I are perfect for each other... not perfect people. 
  • We know that we just know a little bit of what's our there to learn.
  • We know that there is still a lot growing and living to do.

If you disagree with something we have to say.... please comment and let us know what you think or share your experiences.  We thank those that have so far and we look forward to hearing more from you!

P.S. As you can see, I still can't get enough of the city bokeh!!

Day 24: Date night, St. Kilda

From Adonis:
Ahh what a great cap to the holiday weekend. This evening we went out for dinner at one of our favorite Mexican Inspired restaurants, Amigos. As per usual, the food was amazing. Diana even commented that it was our best meal in Oz. Considering the place was packed, we didn't have a wait to be seated and the atmosphere was considerably intimate, despite being quite literally four inches away from a party of four. Diana ordered the Chef's combination which included a hard shell taco, a taquito, and I think a burrito. As for her adult beverage, The Pink Cadillac.  I ordered the grilled chicken enchiladas with a Passion fruit Caiprinha. After the Maitre d' rolled us out of the restaurant, we took a short walk down the ave. in St. Kilda. We eventually passed Luna Park, and arrived at the Palais Theatre. We enjoyed a great show by John Legend and an opening act named Lowrider (Australian Soul/Funk). Funny enough, the lead singer of lowrider reminded me of Russell Brand. From where we were sitting I couldn't see his face clearly enough to prove this thought wrong. So, I pretty much watched Russell Brand perform, which made watching their performance that much more enjoyable.  All in all it was a good Easter.

On a personal note, I can't wait for everyone to start going back to work. Everyone is off, which means everyone is out and about interrupting my daily routine of doing nothing all day. Furthermore, with everyone being home they're tying up the internet, which has been devastatingly slow since friday. Hopefully my theory is right, and we've been computer-less because of the abnormally high level of traffic. Otherwise, my first call in the morning will be to the cable company!!!

Day 23: Sangria!

From Diana:
We make amazing Sangria!  When I say "we" I really mean Adonis.  I'm his test taster though, so I count!  I'd put our Sangria right up there with our Guacamole and Pico De Gallo.  I know, that's a BOLD statement because our Pico and Guac are amazing! Well folks, now you know that our Sangria is too!  Right now, I'm enjoying a glass of our Sangria, pre-gaming before another night out in Melbourne.  We're going to cruise the casino and see what the night brings

Day 22: Flower Power

From Diana:
My New Year's  Resolution was to keep fresh flowers in the house all year long.  Well, I made that resolution without thinking because I knew at that point that I'd be in Australia.  I actually started to keep fresh flowers well before the New Year and I was doing good.... until I got here.  Today we went food shopping (again) and I decided to restart.  Got myself these lovely bright flowers and a new vase.  I'm excited about the different flowers I'll bring home.  Bad news is that flowers here are ridiculously expensive!! (surprised??? maybe not).  Good news is that I'm motivated to bring home some beauties! 

Side Note: the internet was super dumb crazy slow today!!  So, this isn't the photo I would have chosen to upload but I had to take advantage of the connection while it was available.  Enjoy!

Day 21: Good Food

From Diana:
We loooove cooking.  I'll be the first to admit that he is a much better cook than I am but I do make some yummy food.  He and I have a deal:  The dishes I make really really well, he's not allowed to make.  Those are the dishes I make for him.

Day 20: The Laneways

The hidden and not-so-hidden Melbourne laneways are hands-down my favorite places in Melbourne.  Trust you'll be seeing more!

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Day 19: Who's there?

From Diana:
People used to ask me if I have a "type".  My answer would always be "No".  I think it's very interesting when people have a type.  It's even more interesting when they continue the same type and it doesn't work out -- but they keep going back to that same type!

If you continue to date people who look the same and who act the same as your ex --- then what makes you think that it will work out this time?  I know instances where it has worked -- but most of the time it doesn't.  I do strongly believe that there are certain qualities that you should not be willing to compromise when looking for a partner.  For example, I like it when a guy makes me laugh.  I know I couldn't be with a guy that had zero sense of humor and was too stuffy to make a fool out of themselves every  now and again.

But you have men and women out there who are not willing to compromise the superficial in order to meet a great guy.  Women are concerned about what a man can buy them and men are concerned about how big her booty is.... c'mon, date men/women that you normally wouldn't date.  What's the worse that can happen?  Don't worry about whether or not your friends will think he's cute or if your friends think she's a dime+99.

Let me just say that I know it is important to be attracted to your partner.  I'm just saying every now and again, look past the exterior for a little bit and you might just find the (wo)man of your dreams!  You never know who's there.

- Best case scenario: You find the love of your life! You're other half.
- Worst case scenario: You wasted your time on a date.  OK, but at least it was a waste for one night and not a waste for months dating the same type of guy (or lady) you normally date.

Remember the 80/20 Rule:  If a person has 80% of what you are looking for, then don't let them go!! Evaluate how important the lacking 20% is because you might have just lost your soulmate.

Day 16: Health & Wellness Challenge

From Adonis:
I have always tried to use my insecurities as a strength. One of the things I've always dealt with since I was a child is a condition known as gynecomastia. It was always something that made me at times, not feel as confident as I wanted to be. For those of you that don't know what gynecomastia is, quite simply it is the fatty tissue that men have on their chest that makes it look like they have boobies. This along with being overweight, has been a long standing issue at times in my life. However, my friends have always made me feel better about it without knowing they have and in the most immature ways possible. I thank them for that! Whether calling me names or grabbing on my breasticles they helped to show me that it was not that big of a deal. Its weird to think about, but them pointing out the one thing that made me feel the most exposed and self conscious, was what made me more comfortable in my own skin. Like most things I turned it into a positive. I used it as motivation when I was lacking the energy to hit the gym and used it as a strength if I was ever feeling down.

Joining Diana in Oz is allowing me to get back on track. Back in the gym and focused on my health. All too often we get caught up in our work and family lives that we forget to take care of ourselves, and I have let myself fall victim. Now that I'm in a controlled environment I'm more ready than ever to lose the weight and get healthy. As for the gynecomastia, the only thing that will suitably treat the condition is surgery. I'll be tackling that issue later in the year!

One of the reasons I decided to post this subject on the blog is because I realize that a lot of people face challenges when it comes to losing weight. We all seem to look for the magic pill and want immediate results. What I think works best though, is losing weight over time and eating realistically. I want to bring attention to the issue because unfortunately some of us face medical and physiological limitations that prevent us from doing activities that promote a healthy life style. It can be arthritis, or a disease like lymes, that wrecks a person's body. Either way we all face challenges. Sorry, you wont be seeing dramatic results here. Keep in mind I AM NOT dieting. I eat healthy normally, but my portions were too large and I was eating wayyyy to late! I am hitting the gym now four days a week. My exercises include weightlifting and cardio,  2 or miles per workout. As a reference I use the elliptical and treadmill, about 15-20 min's on each (variable spd & steep incl.).  I will be posting a weekly  or biweekly progress picture so keep tuned!

So I challenge you to join me on my journey! If you have a couple lbs to lose, drop em'. If you just want to show support, let me hear your words of encouragement.   

Here are my baselines: 
  • BMI-  37.7 est. This is pretty much morbidly obese (I think the BMI is outdated…)
  • Height: 5'10
  • Starting weight: 263lbs
  • weight loss goal: 65lbs
  • Time period: 9 months 

On the flip side, I took a physical and blood tests before leaving the US, and I am medically healthy! I scored in highest level. Diana however scored in an exceptional category, a place reserved for athletes. So as she says, she works out to eat unhealthily….whatever flaca

Day 15: We (heart) NY

Today we went to Australia's largest Urban Music Festival.  Of course, I had to wear my "I (heart) NY" shirt. And, someone asked us today -- "Do you really love NY??"  We quickly answered - "YES! We're from NY"  Then the guy said "Well, just because you are from there doesn't mean you love it."  We said "No, if you're from NY - you love it.  There's no other place in the world like it."

No matter where I am in the world or where I work or what I wear: I will always be the skinny girl from Brooklyn rockin' her J's (Jordans).  In recent years I've traded in my kicks for heels -- but my sneakers will always be in my closet.  Adonis and I were both raised in the same neighborhood in Brooklyn: Bed-Stuy.  We strongly believe that having the same up-bringing has set the same values in both of us.  These are the values we bring into our relationship and will pass down to our children.  Having the same values without having to teach each other the values we grew up with makes it so easy to be on the same page about a lot of things.  I won't get too deep but it's so nice to be with someone who gets me without having to explain too much.

We both have the same T-Shirt and kicks -- maybe we'll take a photo another day like a ghetto twin couple lol.

Day 14: Coastal Cruising

From Diana:
We had amazing weather today.  We took advantage of the fact that we only live a 10-15 minute bike ride to the beach, so we went for a long bike ride along the beach.  We even had the chance to stop for a snack break and lay on a big hill.  It was the perfect Saturday.

A few years ago Adonis asked me to get a bike with him so that we could cruise together.... but I immediately said "HELL TO THE NO" lol.  I'm clumsy as is, now this man wants to mount me on two wheels?? Ha!  That attitude quickly changed after I saw how much fun he had during a very rainy 42 mile NYC Bike Tour.  I decided to support him for the next NYC Bike Tour and got myself a bike and intensely trained two weeks before the big ride (lol -- definitely wasn't enough time).  Now, I love biking! Just another way to do something healthy while having fun.  You should try it.

I couldn't help it, so here are more photos of our afternoon:

Day 13: Internet Privacy

From Diana:
So it's almost been two weeks into this project *phew, 352 more days to go* and I have to admit that it's really out of my comfort zone to put my life on blast like this.  But... I'm committed to the project so I'm willing to put my internet privacy to the side and give myself to this project... and to you.

Even though we only have very few readers (that I know well personally) I feel like all eyes are on me and it feels weird.  It'll feel more weird when readers I've never met start to tune in regularly.  Hopefully I'll be more comfortable by that time.  Putting myself out there makes me feel vulnerable, which unless you knew me personally, you would never see from our everyday interactions.  I always keep my interactions with different people in my life at different levels.  For example, my co-workers don't know me like my best friends knows me... and my best friends don't really know what I'm like at work.  Opening up to EVERYONE at the same time and at the same level will be hard, but my creativity and photography will not improve unless I give all of myself to my art.

With all that said, I do want to hear your feedback, read your comments, and get your ideas/opinions.  So, please don't hesitate to give constructive criticism on my photography and even the topics we post.

Day 12: Tokens

From Adonis:
Today Diana was thinking about tokens… not subway tokens.. or the coins from Dave & Busters, but items in our life that mean something. Like "tokens of appreciation" or trinkets that are handed down within families to the next generation. Specific to US are the key and heart shaped locket that I gave to DIana early on in our relationship.

I remember going to the mall more than 15 years ago with the intentions of buying the first piece of jewelry I had ever purchased for a girlfriend. As I browsed through the different jewelry shops, I realized that (1) I didn't have enough money to buy something ultra fancy, and (2) I didn't really understand the significance of buying jewelry for someone. I quickly left the mall, jumped on my mongoose and rode home to think about what I really wanted to get for her. It was during this point that I made a decision about Jewelry. I wouldn't buy it just to buy it, and if I did buy a piece of jewelry, it would have to mean something. It would have to have significance, no matter how inexpensive or pricey.

I returned to the mall a day or two later with my plan laid out. I bought a 24k gold key and a heart shaped locket that could open up and hold a picture. I told myself that I would save these gifts for the one who earned my trust, and the one who earned my love. And to the one who earned both, they would have the key to my heart. They would most likely be the one. Coincidently, the person who inspired the jewelry purchase, was not the one who ended up receiving these gifts. None of the girls I dated earned these tokens...

... until I met Diana.
Diana earned my trust.
Diana earned my love.

Most importantly, I learned that it was just as important to have earned her trust and her love. I realized that just because I am giving you something doesn't mean that it will have automatic meaning to you. At least not the same meaning it will have to me. If I gave you pearls the first thing you would see is that I gave you pearls on the other hand if I gave you a diamond ring you may think that I am proposing. The meaning is not just in the giving of the object. The meaning is carried through the object itself, the context in which with its given, and in the intention motivating the action. I gave to Diana, the key and the locket. I explained to her the significance that both had to me and what it meant to me by giving it to her. Although well before marriage talks occurred, I realized early on that it was the right thing to do. I guess subconsciously I knew she was the one, well before I consciously accepted the realization.

From Diana:
I won't be offended if you don't believe that sappy story about the purchase of these tokens 15 years ago ... cuz I still don't believe it until this day lol. The important thing is that I truly do appreciate the gift and the meaning behind it.  Even though I don't believe this story (lol once again) I wear my tokens with pride and I wear them quite often.  They have grown to become full of meaning and I would be devastated if anything were to happen to them before I could pass them down to our kids. 

I love the fact that my man either (A) cared enough to come up with this story or (B) actually is sappy enough to have done this.  Either way, it's the effort he put forth just for me.  There was no audience to witness this, there was no one to show-off in front of. And, he wasn't trying to impress me either because what he forgot to mention was that this was actually his first (and last) Valentine's Day gift to me.  We aren't into doing the whole cheesy Valentine's Day thing, but as a new couple, I guess we felt like we had to celebrate in some way.  Our first Valentine's Day we agreed that we were not allowed to spend more than $20 on each other's gifts.  He got me these tokens full of meaning.... and I gave him photos of myself (hahaha).

Ladies... please appreciate all the small and big things your man does for you.  Don't act stank when he doesn't get you the handbag you want or when he gets you less-than-fresh flowers or when he takes you to a not-so-fancy restaurant that he swears is classy lol.  The point is... he tried and he tried just for you - his lady.  You learn to recognize that and appreciate him for that.

Day 11: Don't throw it all away

From Adonis:  It's important for me to council my friends as much as they council me, although I recognize a discrepancy in how much I receive to how much I give, but thats another story for another day. What the pressing issue is, is the thought that people find it so easy to give up nowadays. Not just give up, but to simply throw it all away because either they're too lazy or because they're too caught up in their pride....ego. 

Well frankly your pride needs to be put to the side and your ego will recover. When you are in a serious committed relationship, you should do what it takes to gain everything you can from it. Even if you know you ARE NOT going to marry who you are with, learn from the experiences you have together. Use your relationship as practice for the "real" thing. Im tired of hearing about how my guy friends left their girl because the sex wasn't great (because she wasn't freaky enough, be glad your having sex...good sex at that) or because her body isn't like the girls you see in South Beach (majority of those women paid for that, besides, she can cook and gets along with all the fellas). 

To me, I like to make the best of whatever the situation is. Even if it sucks....So, in my 2011 Im saying NO DUMPING PERMITTED. Stick it out. Especially if things are inherently good, not just bad because you're coming up with reasons to argue, to get out of the house. Learn what it is to share dinner at the table together and to have meaningful evening conversation. Bring your man around your girlfriends so he can feel important that he's present during your "oh-so-special" girl time. Take her to the ball game so she can see what she's not missing. Find out what it means to be in a relationship before moving on to a new one and having more negative experiences. You can't expect your partner to change if you haven't thought about it yourself. So let the change be that you are always willing to give it a go, and that your first instinct isn't to throw it all away, but to find the problem, seek the solution, and try harder to grow from those experiences. 

From Diana: Whenever Adonis and I had a fight I have to be honest and say that I was never in fear that we would breakup over whatever it is that we arguing about... call me cocky or call him lucky.  Recently someone asked if "taking a break" helped or hurt a relationship.  My answer is: "What the heck is a break?!" You're either with me or you aren't.  Relationship limbo once existed in my world... but after I saw what a break did to a person, I said NO MORE WITH THIS ISH! From that point forward, I decided that my relationship status would be "In a Relationship" or "Single" -- none of this "It's complicated" crap.  I'm so glad that Adonis and I set these expectation from early on.  We knew from the very beginning that we were IN this and there was no turning back.  We said NO DUMPING PERMITTED.... and it still isn't!

Christine..... Did this get your through your whole breakfast?! ;-)

Ok, I really have to go now... Adonis is researching mini pet pigs and all you need to know to own one -- I have to stop him from this crazy idea. Ay ay ay!!

Day 10: Body Language

We've learned how it important it is to communicate: 
(1) Body Language
(2) Verbally
(3) Electronically
(4) Emotionally
(5) .... communicate any and every way possible. 

We don't claim to know it all and we don't claim to be the best communicating couple on the planet.  But, we know what works for us and we know that we have to continue working on it so that we can continue to work.  

Side note... our fingers look creepy... Creepy Love hehehe.

Day 9: Let me see

Let's talk about trust bay-bee!

Being in a long-term & long distance relationship isn't always peaches and cream.  There are many times when your trust is tested.  Your mind even tricks you into believing things simply by thinking about them.  You literally mind-F yourself.. you mindsterbate! Sorry.. let me continue....

If you do not trust your partner or if you believe what others whisper in your ear easily, then your long-distance relationship will not last and you'll be left with your made-up crazy thoughts.  The best way to conquer this is by having constant communication.  Instead of finding proof that your partner is cheating or trying to catch them in the act... consider thinking about all the great things he/she does for you.  If there isn't anything there to find... maybe there really isn't anything there to find.... maybe.  See it's that "maybe" that drives you crazy.

Some may argue that this is a very naive thinking.  Think what you want and I'll think what I want ... Or, as the hubster would say "Why waste your energy by focusing on the negative... when you can focus and grow on the positive".

One of my FB friends recently questioned whether it was OK to look into your husband's email, belongings, etc.  I was surprised by how many people said "Yes".  So what if you live together, we all deserve our privacy and not because we have something to hide, simply because somethings really are just mine.  I have no problem giving my hubster my email passwords, and leaving my journal out in the open but I trust that he will not violate my privacy behind my back.  If you think your husband or wife is hiding something, then I suggest you re-evaluate your relationship and get to the root of the issue.

Day 8: Living in America is a bargain

Unhappy Food Shoppers

We went grocery shopping today.  And, if you didn't know, let me tell you that food in Melbourne is very expensive.  Shopping for two for a one week period was an interesting shopping experience, especially for Adonis.  I was already introduced to the insane prices, and he knew it was expensive here... but he was reminded once again.

We found ourselves comparing prices, converting Kilos to Pounds, browsing the shelves for similar but less expensive products, and even tweaking our weekly meal plan to accommodate for less expensive foods.  We spent about $150 for one week worth of food (mostly dinners).  Oh ... and Australia really isn't big on coupons *gasp* so no coupon clipping for us.  The fruits and veggies are less expensive at the markets so we didn't bother buying them at the supermarket but because we woke up a bit late, we couldn't make it to the markets on time.  When we do though, add another $35 to the bill above!!

Today he said: "I never thought living in America was a bargain" ... Well my friends, let me tell you that it is! So, don't take it for granted.  Run to your local bodega and buy a quarter juice (you can't find that in a local store here!).... buy a Laffy Taffy or a Now-A-Later for 10 cents or whatever they cost now... go to the Mexicans selling veggies on the street by the train stations and buy 10 limes for $1... or simply buy a $1 bottle of water from the gas stations because bottled water in Melbourne costs $2.50+.

It was a lazy photo day.... so a quick celli pic will do for today!

Day 7: Rainy days aren't always bad

We went out for quick snack, drink, and $5 shot!  The rain was not going to stop us tonight.  I had the 2nd best Watermelon Martini I've ever had at Ruby Tuesdays on Chapel St! No, not the American Ruby Tuesdays.  The best ever was one night in a restaurant in Melbourne called "Meat & Wine Co."  Adonis ordered my martini today and said the guy went to the back to grab a piece of watermelon to make the martini with... say what?! We keep it classy! 

It was entertaining taking this photo in the middle of a very busy train station.  Since I left my tripod back in the states, I had to set up the camera on top of the rubbish (trash) bin... or was it the Recycling Bin?  Either way it didn't matter since they both had the same contents.  And since I left my remote back in the apartment, I had set up a 5 second self-timer, so Adonis kept hurrying me up to get in the shot.  

One of my favorite things about our relationship is that we don't let little things (i.e. rain) get in the way of whatever it is that we want to do.  

Side note: Adonis doesn't realize it but he's an umbrella hog! Yea, I said it!

Day 6: Wine-o's

Here's the quick background on this wine:  Long story short... Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc is one of my all time favorite wines. I tried so hard to find this wine at a regular liquor store, but no luck.  Our second year together, Adonis ordered two bottles of this wine and two Cakebread engraved wine glasses for my birthday.  I was soooo excited.  The popped the first bottle on my birthday and we popped the 2nd bottle when we closed on our first house!!

Fast forward years later.  As wedding gift, my very thoughtful co-worker and his wife bought us a congratulatory bottle of wine for our wedding.  I pull the bottle out of the cute packaging and POW! There it is... one of my hard-to-find favorites!! I was so excited... I swear I wanted to open the bottle right then and there.  But I resisted the urge and waited... 6 months and 2 days later of being married, we finally opened the bottle.  Honestly, this is THE best bottle of Cakebread I've had.  Yum!!

P.S. I'm already in love with the bokeh from the new apartment's balcony!

1+3+1=5... Day 5

It's Day 5! Melbourne had beautiful weather today!! 26 degrees Celsius.  Get your calculators our my friends.... or start Googling.  It's about 79 degrees Fahrenheit.  Hubster and I took the opportunity to enjoy the weather over wine, "Gin and Dry", and some chips.  Oh, sorry.... Gin and Dry = Gin and Ginger ale's and Chips = Fries.  

Annnyway.  We found ourselves at Table 131.  Adonis asked what our theme for the picture would be and I said look! 1+3+1 = 5... it's our 5th Day! He liked how clever I was.  Over drinks and chips we talked about kids, our wedding, the concept of marriage, and how we liked enjoying an evening like tonight.  

What can you conclude from this post? We were too busy drinking that we dared to take our rings off of our fingers to take the photo. Then again, Adonis is PO-PO so he would chase a perp down if they even THOUGHT of running off with our rings! hahaha. 

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Day 4: Diana + Adonis + Doritos = PLUMP... NOT!

We decided to go ahead and have some fun tonight... if you didn't know, we are extremely silly, so get used to it.

We had a great workout a few hours before this picture and immediately after the work out we had some TACO SALAD.... yum! Hopefully this will not be us well into our marriage.  We have started doing everything we can to prevent gaining excess weight.  A little grown man weight and a cute love handle never hurt anyone, but we can't let it get out of control.

Internet is back in action... so now I have my camera posse ready to snap away!  The Droid held it down for the first few days.  On another note, I need to fix my ISO settings (or learn how to fix it).

Day 3: Chillaxin'

We just got back from a delicious dinner splurge! We took the opportunity to have an seafood dinner with some amazing Riesling wine and GINgerale!! We almost missed the gym induction at our building but made it just in time. Huh? What'd you say? Oh, Did we go to the gym after a tasty dinner?? Psh! No, of course not. Running from the restaurant to the gym induction was the exercise.... duh! So it counts. And that's why we are chillaxin' on the couch waiting for Top Gear to come on. Hehehe.

Day 2: Time is on our side

This may sound overly dramatic but Adonis came just in time to rescue me from the creeping feeling of home-sickness and lonliness.  It feels like we are still catching up and time is definitely on our side this time.  The apartment is no longer empty.  It's not full of our corny love... silly laughter... and the smell of delicious food!

Day 1 Finally Together

After 2 months apart.... we are finally together. FYI... the first week of this 365 will be phonetographs. We don't have the internet in this apartment yet, so my Droidtography will just have to suffice.
