February Update

It’s been a while. Hey, blog! Some disjointed life updates and recent photos below. 

Big changes at work, cold temperatures, and quick trips to New York are what we’ve been up to lately.

For Christmas, Matt got us tickets to a new musical called Dear Evan Hansen. I may have been dropping subtle hints about wanting to see it for months. (Thanks, Matty!) I don’t take for granted that my sweet, sweet husband enjoys attending Broadway shows with this theatre nerd.

This show you guys. THIS SHOW IS BEAUTIFUL. Matt has seen at least ten musicals with me and said this is his new favorite. I have to agree. And we’ve seen Hamilton! I think the New York Times said it best when they said it’s, “A gorgeous new musical for anyone with a beating heart.” True. So. So. True. I can’t wait to see it again! In the meantime, my fellow metro commuters can deal with my big dumb smile as a I do my best not to belt out the gorgeous melodies from this exquisite piece of theatre.

While in New York to see the show, we stopped by the New York Public Library and had dinner at The Breslin.

We also had a wonderful visit with family we met in Ireland! They are my sister-in-law’s nieces and nephews and we had a great time going through the National Portrait Gallery and eating at one of our Chinatown favorites, Penn Commons.

Maybe it’s because as I write this Matt is away at a bachelor party in New York, or the fact that I just watch Pride and Prejudice, but I’m more grateful than ever for my husband. He’s kind, patient, and gives the best advice. I truly don’t know what I’d do or where I’d be without him. Our date night conversations these days seem to be more and more about our future kids — our family. We can’t wait and we know God is in control. I think 2017 is going to be a big year for us.

Hope you all are great! Enjoy the long weekend and hug your people tight.
