Hi everyone! It has been far too long since Dallas and I posted. I can’t believe we’ve been engaged for almost three months already! We’ve been very busy with wedding planning and graduate school. Highlights from the past few months include planning our October wedding in Chicago (check out the new wedding part of our site!), Dallas publishing his first research article in a peer-reviewed journal, and spending time with our families over Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now, we’re together in Santa Barbara celebrating the new year. We can’t wait to see what 2012 brings!
