Tying up loose ends...

Things are definately starting to get real for me.  I gave my two week notice at work, and I'm beginning to pack up my things and move on from this place in life.  Although I'm excited about the new things, I do often have a hard time letting go of things from the past.  It's a bittersweet moment for me, and I suspect it will be a bittersweet 2 weeks since I'm prolonging the process. 

Goodbye UNCG, coworkers, and friends!  I'll miss you all.

July 4th was a great weekend for us.  After not seeing each other for more than a week, we got to spend some much needed time together.  We also got to spend some quality time with very important people in our lives. 

the only picture I got before our date on Friday

Friday night we went out with a great couple, who also happens to be Antonio's cousin and best friend.  I think the night was perfect!  Dinner, shopping, and we even got to see some fireworks in Durham.  I'm sure this is the first of many dates with them, because we love them to LIFE!
Both of us come from fairly small nuclear families, he has one brother, and I have one sister.  It's only obvious that we would value their opinions in the mate we are choosing to spend the rest of our lives with.  With everything going on, we've not had a lot of chances to just spend quality time with our siblings together, but that all changed this weekend as well.  Friday and Monday, we spent time with Tyrone (his brother), and Sunday, we did dinner with Venita (my sister).  All turned out to be great experiences!  Ty even lifted my "pending" status into the family (LOL).  Even Venita, in her very own way, opened up a little more than normal.  We are so blessed to have these 2 very special people in our lives, and we look forward to sharing many life experiences with them both. 

Here they are!  We both love you!

**I promise I'm going to get better about taking pictures.  I'm still adjusting to this blogging thing.**
