I'm back :)

It has been wayy too long since I've posted. Let's see..last time I wrote, J was coming home for Christmas. I must say, it was the best Christmas I've ever had. I can't even explain how great it felt being able to spend this Christmas with my husband. We didn't get to spend the holidays together last year because he was deployed. And we were both so worried he wouldn't get leave to come home. But luckily, the Marines were nice this time and he got to come home! We spent 10 wonderful days together. We spent time doing all the wonderful things couples do during the holidays..we drank hot chocolate & looked at Christmas lights, we watched a ton of Christmas movies, made a gingerbread house, went to mass together on Christmas eve, exchanged gifts, and got our pictures taken by Taylor @ Skinnie Piggie. Her husband is good friends with J. So it was great being able to catch up with them. Overall, the 10 days we got to spend together were absolutely amazing. I'm not sure when we'll see each other next..hopefully for spring break. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas & New Years. Here's some pictures that Taylor took! :)

After the holidays, I left for India. It was much better then I thought it was going to be. I was having a problem adjusting at first and I was reallly homesick the first week there. I didn't like the food at all. But after awhile I got used to it. The culture is completely different. Besides the food and the way they treat the women, I loved almost all of the culture. The music was awesome. And their clothing is adorable. I loved the exchange rate..haha. I definitely spent too much money! Overall though, tt was definitely a life changing experience. I don't regret going. It changed the way I thought about alot of things..but I don't think I'd go back.

Good news..I found my wedding dress!! :)
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
