Wow. We feel like we have been on hold forever with this whole grad school thing. Jared and I both took the GRE last August, with plans for him to attend grad school first and then I would have the option to in the future if we had the means. So applications started in October and were turned in by December. It has been a long time coming but within the last week we FINALLY heard back from 2 schools - and both were a YES! Jared's the surprise type of man, so when he got in to NCSU he called me up and asked me if I would like to live in Raleigh. At first I didn't catch on, but then it hit me that he was asking me because that would potentially be our new home! I was ecstatic! I would love to live in NC!
Then yesterday he came out from the grocery store with an orange rose. That seeemed random, but I willingly accepted it, of course. I thought orange was a weird color for a rose until I realized that he was giving me the colors of Syracuse University! We couldn't be more pleased. Still waiting to hear from 3 more. No matter which school we ultimately decide, we'll be east coasters starting in July!
