the only things I care about are flowers and being in love and that is okay.

Stephan and I are apartment hunting in Ann Arbor.

Joanna Newsom’s long wavy hair forever and ever and ever.

Perfect gunne, imperfect price.

I am in Toronto this week for top secret teacher duties that leave me exhausted by the end of the day. The National happen to also be in the city and I am dying to go, but I dont know if I can justify spending the money. I can never justify the money.

Stephan and I were approved by the u.s. government, which means I am officially allowed to apply for a visa. When I got the email late, late last night I had to run to the bathroom in my shared hotel room to do a little dance.

Ever since, I have been dreaming about life in Ann Arbor and how cozy our apartment will be and how this is a fresh start full of possibility. I am so in love and so full of hope and happiness and gratitude for the way my life is turning out.
