Two Addresses, One Home, Two Weeks

Dear Mom and Dad,
(and future Mom and Dad)

Chris and I are taking part in a new social experiment.

It's called pre-marriage trial living together.

Chris moved in this weekend and we will "live together" for two weeks. At the end of two weeks he will move out and we will live in autonomy until our next trial period.

We realized we have both been living alone for about eight years and are quite used to having our own space and our own things and our own way of living.

Just like the 5K in March, we're training.
Throwing ourselves into the same apartment on June 22 might be a bit much, so we're easing into the idea. Few days here, few weeks there, eventually moving up to the big 80 year together thing.

So far so good.

All 3 days have been successful.

Chris took me to Tom Thumb to pick out any flowers I wanted.
I suffered through 4 hours of boys throwing around a football and bad commercials.
Chris endured my first ever night of sleep-talking, and I put his towel in the dryer so it would be warm for him when he got done with his shower.

Ah, temporary pre-marital still best-behavior living together.

It's not for everyone, but so far, it's been good for us.

We hope you'll stay tuned.

We love you,

Sarah & Chris

  1. At the end of the two weeks I hope there will be a follow-up entry which let's everyone know how it went.
