is our 2 month wedding anniversary.  I’ve been married 2 months.  Crazy.  I’ve finally gotten over the surreal feeling and I feel like we’ve settled in.  Settled into our life together, routines, work, and dealing with the daily frustrations of life.  And I’m really enjoying it.  I’m still a little lonely, as I haven’t made many friends down here yet and I miss friends and family up in Baltimore.  We’ve visited Andy’s family several weekends though and that has been a lot of fun.  They have been great and I’ve had fun going out with Andy’s stepmother, his sister, and stepsister for some much needed girl time.

Here is a painting that I started last Sunday and finished just a few days ago (so I’m going to say it still counts).  It’s one of the larger paintings I’ve ever done – about 24″x36″.  I got the canvas on sale years ago and was glad to pull it out to try and brighten up our white walls.  It was a lot of fun to do – try and get in a lot of colors already in our living room and pull in some others so that I have options to redecorate around too.  I used acrylic paint – not my usual oil paints.
