The last month or so has been an absolute whirlwind for us, and I feel bad that I’ve been neglecting our blog. But things are finally calming down, and now have time to start writing again!
First of all, Alex and I got married this past month! It was a perfect day, everyone sobbed (especially Alex and I) and then we danced the night away! I couldn’t be happier, or feel luckier to spend the rest of my life with Alex. (Alex is crying somewhere as she reads this.)
People ask me if I feel different now that we’re officially hitched, but I’m still not sure how to answer that. We moved in together after dating for about 2 months, so it’s always felt like we were meant to be. I don’t feel like our relationship or the love we feel for each other has changed in any way, but making our friends and family watch us sob all over each other and stuff rings on our hands was pretty sweet. I think the one difference is being able to call Alex my wife, versus my fiancée, which made me feel like a tool every time I said it. Plus, look how cute she is! I had to lock that down.
Our dear friend, Whitney Browne, made a Wedding Blog entitled “When your friends get married” all about our Special Day! Whitney is one of our best friends and truly one of the most incredible photographers I’ve ever seen. It was such an honor to have her be a part of Alex’s Bridal Party and such an honor to have her in our lives.
Another big thing that’s been going on is that Alex and I are applying to graduate school to get a Masters in History. Once we got back from the wedding, we devoted our time to getting our recommendations, essays, and personal statements all in order. Because the computer I had in college died, I had to write a whole new essay to prove that I’m literate. This was challenging because I haven’t had to write a serious paper since college and Alex has to constantly remind me that I wasn’t writing a blog that it had to be more “professional” and less bitchy. It’s hard for me! But, as of today, we are officially done. Everything has been sent in, and now we can breath a sigh of relief!
We’re also so excited to announce that we have recently begun to partner with Brooklyn Brainery. So be sure to keep an eye out for our tours and even classes that we’re going to offer through them. We also have been doing Facebook Live Videos with Urbanist hosted by Ariel Viera. This has been such a wonderful experience to help spread the word about our company and get more hits onto our website across the globe. In the future, we may also be doing some Drunk History. We’re still hashing out the details but we’ll let you know when it happens!
Now, with all this extra time on my hands, I can now start blogging again and writing bitchily. I can’t wait! Alex and I have a few ideas so stay tuned!
