Introducing… our white sheets! They may not look like much, but Shan and I have been dreaming about buying our own bedding since day 1. Our marriage didn’t begin like most do; two weeks after our wedding, while most other couples were decorating and setting up their new home together, we were selling ours to move back to the states for work-related reasons.
We sold our home (and everything in it) and since then, we’ve been living in constant transition: from company dormitory housing, to my parents’ bed, then his parent’s guest room, and a friend’s sofa bed… We were definitely learning to live like pilgrims.
A year and four months later, here we are! Back overseas, doing what we love to do. Our first home together. Our first private space. Our first white bed sheets. But also, our first paying rent. Our first house cleaning duties. Our first living alone. It has been quite a journey, but I wouldn’t choose to do it any other way 🙂 We’ve cried hard and laughed hard, and sometimes a mix of both, and it’s all beautiful. It’s all worth it.
