After a short hiatus, I’m back with an update on where I have been for the last few months. Short answer, I’ve been exploring a new state! At the start of 2016 Brandon and I packed up a truck and headed south to our new home in Raleigh, North Carolina. North Carolina has always been a dream of ours; both individually and together as a couple. So when the opportunity presented itself, we knew it was something we had to do.
It’s taken us some time but we are finally starting to feel settled in. Now that we are, I finally feel like I can get back into the swing of everything byky and get you all up to speed on what we’ve been up to in Raleigh over the past few months.

June marked the resurrection of surprise monthly date nights! Stay tuned for details from each surprise date in Raleigh.
Mid-morning runs in this heat are not recommended! These Ohioans are not used to it being 90 degrees by 10:00 am!
Spent the day on top of houseboats and in the water at Falls Lake to escape the 100-degree heat!
Having a community pool is the best! You’ll find us here each free weekend this summer!
It’s been a fun adventure so far! So stayed tuned to see more updates as Brandon and I continue to find what Raleigh has to offer 🙂
