Monday Musings: Long Distance

Long Distance

Sometimes I can’t remember all the days spent without you in my arms.

Spoilers! 5 Long Distance Date Ideas

Spoilers! 5 Long Distance Date Ideas

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about how Alec and I were in a long distance relationship here on the blog.

Spoilers! Two Years of Geeky Marriage Bliss + a Letter to My Spouse

Last October, Alec and I finally celebrated our marriage with our family and friends in the form of a wedding in my little home town in Alabama. Our first year of being married was a whirl wind of immigration paperwork and appointments, wedding & honeymoon planning, saving money, family members passing, and just trying to navigate the joyous emotions of finally being together after being long distance for about four years.
