Quarter Century Club

Today is the 25th anniversary of MY BIRTH! I am now officially a part of the Quarter Century Club (even though I had my quarter-life crisis last year).

When I was younger, I pictured myself at 25 to be married, have a kid or 2, and be teaching. Other than that, I didn't really have set goals for my life or my future. So now I am 9 months away from getting married, getting anxious to start my own family, and not too anxious to get a teaching job. I am truly enjoying my college admissions job, even though I never ever expected it.

My goals for the next few years are fairly simple: stay madly in love*, start my own family, and stay healthy.

My goals for the next few months: finish planning my wedding!

My goals for the next few weeks: finish my Christmas shopping, save up some extra money for January, and finish decorating the condo....

Yes, Jon and I moved in together! When his grandma sadly passed back in June, it was decided that Jon would move in to her condo. Naturally, he asked me to come with him. We didn't actually move in until October, and we have been slowly rearranging and putting everything away for the past 6 weeks. I'll share photos as soon as everything is done. And trust me, I will share LOTS of photos because some of our windows face east and others face north, so we get lots of bright sunshine in the morning and afternoon. If only Jon would be more willing to model for me...

Anyway, remember the keys that I photographed a few weeks ago? They are my condo keys! Here they are again, with a clue to something else in my life:

Here's the color version:

It's going to be EPIC.

Gorgeous black and white of the apples and keys.

Congrats with moving in together and good luck with the shopping/ wedding plans!

I so prefer the BW. That clean and simple composition looks so much more dramatic in BW. Well done!

I know I wished you Happy Birthday over on FB, but I didn't realize it was 25--I got married at 25, too (first baby at 28, second at 31)--For ME the wedding was probably a year or two too soon, but the babies were just right. You and Jon seem more grounded though, that me and Mr. Tart. Hope the co-habitating goes smoothly!

Happy Birthday! I too like the black and white. I love how the dots on the apple stand out!
