First of all, if you've never heard Ed Sheeran's cover of Trap Queen, do yourself a favor and go listen to this right now:
(Fun side note: my mom really really wants me to meet Ed Sheeran and marry him. If he promised to cover my favorite terrible pop songs forever, I'd probably consider it. Sorry Alex.)
I planned to update this thing at least once a month but then mono/some mystery mono-like virus knocked me on my ass and here we are. I started feeling sick around the end of February which was, unfortunately enough, right when my spring OE season started, and have been riding the struggle bus since then. The timing could probably not have been worse. I should have seen this coming because Alex got sick when we were in Miami for New Year's Eve and was down for the count for the entire month of January. I guess I was just hoping that somehow my body would know that it wasn't an option to get sick so close to the start of my science camp season when I have to consistently work 12-hour days. Unfortunately, my body did not cooperate. Anyway, it sucked and it's been a rough month or so but my staff have been killing it and I've got a wonderful boyfriend who also happens to work for me and was able to pick up a lot of my slack - so everything worked out. And now I'm FINALLY starting to feel like myself again just in time for my 26th birthday on Sunday!
Speaking of birthdays, it was Alex's this past Saturday. Our birthdays are 8 days apart so we decided that every year, we're going to go on a birthday adventure over the weekend that falls between our birthdays. This weekend, we'll be camping up in Big Sur to celebrate. I'm stoked because I'll get to wake up in Big Sur on my birthday just like last year :)
I'll update sometime soon with some Big Sur photos and will (hopefully) keep the updates and the photos coming. Now that I'm feeling better, I want to make the most of these gorgeous spring weekends!
(I know, I know: we're cute as hell. I don't even feel bad about it. Check back later for more pictures of us being adorable, along with some pretty ones of the most beautiful stretch of coastline in the world.)
