happy third anniversary

Three years ago, on a sunny Father’s Day, Will and I got married. We were high school sweethearts getting married right out of college so, needless to say, we have gone through a lot of change since that day. We moved into our first apartment together in Chapel Hill, Will started medical school, I started…

Halloween is less than two weeks away, and while I haven’t even thought about a costume, I have all the pumpkins I could need. A few weeks ago Will and I crossed one item off our fall bucket list when we went to a pumpkin patch where we were able to pick the pumpkins we…

love over rivalry: unc vs duke

Happy rivalry day! (or UNC vs. Duke basketball game day!) With a Duke grad and a UNC grad under one roof, Will and I very much have a house divided.  Until last year, our first spring of marriage, we had never watched a Duke-UNC basketball game together.  Neither of us likes losing to the rival team…

date ideas on a budget

After 8+ years of dating, Will and I have some go-to dates, but we always love new adventures and ideas. With Will’s clinicals beginning soon, we have been thinking of dates ideas we can use for the short amount of free time he will have after the Step exam and before clinicals start.  I have…

med school spouse survival kit

Now that almost everyone is back in school, school and dorm supplies are still everywhere.  Parents and students descended upon the stores, snagging folders, paper, lunch boxes, futons and pretty much anything you can fit in a cozy 12’x12′ cinder block home.  While everyone else has just gotten settled in and used to the school schedule again,…
