A Much Needed Update
I think the last time we actually blogged regularly, we made a promise to be more on top of things and provide regular updates. By no means do we think people are sitting on the edge of their seat waiting to hear from us and what we're up to — but we have heard from a few family members that live far away about how they love knowing what we're up to. It makes them feel a little bit closer to us, and we really appreciate that.
So on to this update. Let this post serve as a summary and we'll elaborate throughout the week on what's going on in our lives.
• The biggest update: We have a new member of our family! Say hello to our kitten Franklin! Three weeks ago we were driving by Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden, Colo. and decided to stop in and look around. Sure enough they had a group of kittens!
We saw little Franklin-to-be sitting quietly as some other rambunctious kittens plowed him over and spilled cat food on him. We started to fall in love. The shelter workers brought Franklin (his original name was Munster... we figured he's young — a little name change won't hurt) and us into a private room so we could play with him a little bit. It didn't take long for us to make up our mind and we adopted him! He's been a great little kitten full of energy. More stories to come!
• Our apartment has received some wonderful updates. We officially have a patio on our eight floor balcony — thank you Ikea. This weekend our brand new grill arrived, which took me (Andrew) all Saturday afternoon to build. Hamburgers are for dinner tonight!
• Work-wise, Erin's busy season has officially come to an end, but CPA studying season is in full swing. Welcome back to school. I'm still working at Exclusive Resorts, where we recently launched a new website. I've also taken on a good amount of freelance work for some different blogs around the web.
• Over Memorial Day weekend, we were able to fly back to Michigan and have a post-wedding celebration with the family members who were unable to make it to Denver for our wedding in December. It was so great to get away from the big city, see family and friends and reflect on our marriage, which is going more than six months strong!
Hopefully this blog doesn't turn into a crazy cat blog filled with Franklin photos... but no promises.
