We Made It!

Even though we currently don't have internet in our apartment yet, I was able to sneak away to Starbuck's to enjoy some free internet, so I could check my emails and post my first blog. We are hoping to get our internet on soon, we're just shopping around to find the best deal. Even though we've only been here 4 days now, it's been so great so far. Here are some things I've observed just in driving/traveling around the city...

-Sales tax is 9.25% (yikes!)
-Stop lights are 5x longer than the ones in CT
-Pretty much everyone I have talked to or been around has an accent, sometimes it's so strong I can't even understand them!
-The people here are extremely wealthy...I've never seen so many expensive cars and Louis Vuitton bags in my entire life; Jordan said the people here aren't necessarily ''rich", they just like to spend their money on material things so people can 'one-up' each other.
-The scenery is beautiful; there are so many old and unique churches and the grass is greener than anywhere I've ever seen before!
-There are lots of cute shops and restaurants all over, that Jordan and I can't wait to explore.

Those are just a few of the observations I've made since we got here...I'm sure there will be lots more to come. I am really excited to start our lives here together and to have this place feel like home. Jordan and I have been loving married life so far. We can't believe that we are actually married and get to spend every day together, with each other by our side. We are so blessed and are so thankful for all God has done to bless our marriage, even in the 2 and a half weeks we've been married. I am so excited to share my thoughts, struggles and exciting times with you all here. I hope that I will be as good of a blogger as my sister, I know I have big shoes to fill :)

I'll post pictures of our place once we get everything organized and situated! It's small, but it's ours and I love it! :)
