1. I finished my first year of grad school! Boy, was it challenging, and in ways I never even dreamed. There were quite a few moments where all I wanted to do was quit. However, thanks to D's never-ending support and the support of my fellow classmates, I finished the year and with a 3.96 GPA to boot. This summer, I'm not taking a single class, so I can really give my brain a break.
3. D and I got engaged!! That is by far the most exciting piece of information I have, so I wanted to save it for last. We are getting married on Saturday, August 6th at a nearby restaurant in Seattle. Since the end of the school year, I have been busy planning for the wedding. It will be tiny (immediate family only) and intimate. I really cannot wait to be married to this amazing man. Wedding planning posts will follow, of course!
