Yep, that’s right. Jamey graduated college! For some reason this was more momental to me than my own graduation. I mean of course it meant that we finally get to live together, but I think it was more than that. I lived my college life up.
If the choice was between hanging out with friends or doing school work I usually chose friends. Don’t get me wrong, I graduated with above a 3.5 and did my fair share of studying, but my graduation meant I was finally done with the awful thing people called an education and it meant I was finally able to marry Jamey. Jamey’s graduation was something of more an accomplishment. He took over 18 hours every semester and graduated Suma Cum Laude with two different bachelor degrees and a minor. Even though it wasn’t actually my accomplishment I couldn’t help feel proud and nostalgic over the last four years. Every phone call that was put to the wayside to study for that test or every road trip that had to be cancelled because that paper was due on Monday or even those socials and sorority events that Jamey could never make it to because they interfered with class time. They were all worth it in the end. His accomplishments in college are too numerous to count and I couldn’t be more proud of my hubby!
Well, now here we are, back in Birmingham. I think we both couldn’t wait for this day to come then we finally got here and we weren’t sure what to do with it. So, Sunday we did what I guess any young working couple does and lazed around catching up on the missed TV shows on DVR, played video games, shopped for groceries and relaxed in every way possible. Yep, that is right. Pretty anti-climatic right? Well I don’t think either of us could have imagined anything more perfect.
Jamey started work on Monday, and from what I can tell is liking his new job. I went back to work today and other than a little technical difficulties with computers it was back to the daily grind for me. We are enjoying working and cooking and hanging out every night together. Eventually we will have to try to be more productive with our afternoons after work, but I think for right now we are content at the fact that it is a Tuesday night and we are actually sitting beside each other on the couch.
We move over Memorial Day weekend to our new more permanent apartment in Hoover. Jamey is excited that he will no longer have an hour commute to work 🙂 I’m a little hesitant to move out of my first apartment as a big girl, but our other one suits us both more and I’m excited for that. The Lord has blessed us in more ways than we can count right now and we are excited to see what this chapter in our life holds. We can’t wait to get plugged in here in Birmingham and see what the Lord calls us to do. Pray over us that we will find out what that is!
