the happiest six months

november 10th. it has been exactly six months since ben and i were married in provo. and what a beautiful day may 10th was. i still can't get over how perfect it was--- and how it couldn't have been better.

the last six months have been nothing short of wonderful, adventurous and difficult. graduating, moving and driving across the country is not an easy feat. we still see u-hauls to this day and shutter. the other difficult thing... oh yeah. jobs. :P never have i felt so deceived as when i realized having a college degree doesn't immediately sell you to the job market.
ben is my favorite husband ever. he assures me daily that i am capable, smart, beautiful and not crazy. ben is completely selfless and willing to indulge my obsession with trader joe's and more recently, cupcakes. i need my cuddle time and i want nothing more for ben to be happy. i love to giggle and chat and enjoy every moment together. I LOVE YOU

today: ben picked me up from work at 12:15 and we drove to georgetown to brave the perpetually bad parking problem and eat lunch to celebrate the happy six month mark. we originally wanted to have sushi today, but due to the lack of reasonably priced options as well as the lack of restaurants that are actually open today (the silly Euro mentality), we decided to try pizzeria paradiso. the zagat food rating is a 24/30. not bad. we ordered bread (so much for free bread) but it was well worth it to eat with the free 1/2 bottle of olive oil we consumed. ben had the sicilian pizza and i had the margherita with prosciutto. it was good. not italy. but really good. we've come to grips with the fact that no pizza is santa lucia pizza. and we're ok with that.
