I was talking to my wife the other day and she recommended that I write another blog post. I haven't done so in a while and I couldn't really think about anything to write until I realized that there's been a major change in my life recently. I went from single to married!
We had been dating for just over 8 years, so it was about time! We had been living together for a few years now - end of college and after. I lived with Laura officially for the last 6 months of my college career, then moved up to Dallas while she finished her last semester. We lived in an apartment in Grapevine for almost 2 years before buying a house in Valley Ranch. Not a whole lot has really changed in our lives that most people would notice other than some expensive metal around each of our fingers (and a big rock on hers).
She'll probably keep her name as Moidel for the first few months as we have some things that would be easier under her name. We'll be travelling out of country for her sister's my sister-in-law's wedding and getting a new passport isn't the fastest process in the US. We still haven't decided exactly what we are going to do with all the bank accounts / credit as I've always looked at credit from a single person's point of view. Your credit history (including longest standing credit card / account) can impact your credit, so I want to make sure we don't just go closing accounts without thinking about how they impact her Fifo score.
The wedding was a blast and the honeymoon was even better! It was great to see all the family again and celebrate. The photographer was taking a ton of pictures, so I'll have to post a link to them whenever the photographer puts them up. If I remember, I'll try to put some pictures up on my website tonight. I put a lot of pictures up on facebook via my blackberry so check them out there if you are too anxious to wait for the ones from my digital camera.
