S.O. and me before Senior Prom
Together we've experienced both high school and college graduation, three trying years of being in a relationship long distance, relocation to the East Coast, S.O.'s continuing journey toward a Ph.D., my relocation to Boston (along with three horrible months of unemployment) and cohabitation for a year. And, of course, all of the trials and tribulations that come along with "coming into our own" as young adults. Happily, our growth as individuals only complimented our relationship even through all of the years we spent apart. Today our relationship is stronger than it's ever been.
Anyway, I'm happy to announce that as of last Friday, after nearly nine years of coupledom, we're officially engaged!
Now on to the next phase!
