First, my favorites out of the new headshots. Many thanks to David Carlson!
My absolute favorite is the jumping one. I don't care if I can't use it that often. I love it.
Now! On to the new apartment. Yes. We found one. It's fabulous. It costs only a little more than what we're currently paying and it's...
- Sans Roommates
- Did I mention it's just us? Without roommates?????
|living room with fabulous screened-in balcony!|
|View from dining area. Wait... we have a dining area now????|
|HOLY SHIT! Is that a vintage kitchen? YES IT IS!!!|
|I'm sorry, did you say your new place was RENT CONTROLLED?????|
|Wow... look at that laminate wood flooring in your ENTRYWAY!|
|What adorable little French doors and separate oven you have!|
|I'm sorry, is that a LINEN closet AND a COAT closet?|
|OK, so I'm still not sure how I feel about the separate tub/bath...|
|...but will you look at all that counter space? Yes. I don't care how ugly the top is...|
|Bedroom. Your closet is about two feet longer than our current. What will I do with all your space?|
FINALLY.... Jake's ring! He chose to have a thumb ring because of comfort and because it's a reference to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He works with his hands/fingers on a daily basis and isn't used to wearing jewelry. I think a thumb ring looks cooler and is an awesome compromise since I didn't think I could talk him into a ring in the first place.
We had it made by the same goldsmith who did mine and I think it looks INCREDIBLE!
It's inspired by a vintage airplane wing and I love the industrial, cobbled together look! And Jake is absolutely in LOVE with it! The textures vary throughout the ring, and I can't wait to post some more pictures of it, but I had to snag this one while he slept!!!
Oddly enough, some people have objected more to the fact that he's wearing it before the wedding than the fact that it's a thumb ring! My engagement ring and wedding band are one and the same, why can't he enjoy it too?
