Wedding Wednesday - Our first place

I'm almost done with the Wedding Wednesday posts. I'll be in Cambodia when the rest of these post. That's crazy, when I started this we weren't even sure that we were going to go anywhere with the Peace Corps, and right now I'm writing this while waiting for our staging/orientation to start the day before we start our life in Cambodia.

1. how it all began: how you met, first date, first kiss, how long did you date? first picture together.....etc.
2. when you knew he was the one: self explanatory.. but how and when did you know?
3. proposal: how it happened, how long were you engaged for? was it a total surprise?  pictures of that... etc.
4. the ring:  tell us about it! did you pick it out? did he? pictures! tell us about his ring too!
5. engagement/bridal pictures: let's see em!
6. the colors: show some of the flower and colors you used
7. the dress: was it what you always imagined? did you have it made for you? white or ivory?
8. the little accessories: you know, veil? shoes? jewelry? what did your bridesmaids wear?
9. the reception: where was it at? show us some pictures! what day did you get married?
10. the cake/food: i love food. so tell me about what you had at your wedding!
11. your song and/or the first song you danced to at your wedding: share a music video or lyrics if you can!
12. favorite part of the day and least favorite part of the day: can be anything.
13. honeymoon: where did you go? was it good?  ;) haha...jk.
14. thoughts on marriage: what is the easiest/hardest part? if you could change anything, what would it be?
15. first place that you lived together: pics if you have them!
16. kids: do you have any yet? if not, when do you plan on it? how many do you want? any tips on good/bad birth control?
17. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

This week is all about our first place together! We moved in together when we got married. In fact, the night we got back from our weekend away in Park City (since we went on a honeymoon a couple of weeks later) we had to set up our bed in our apartment. We didn't have a couch for like a month. It's crazy to look back on how little we had back then, and see how much we just had to get rid of. We were so blessed with so many things.

Our first apartment was in downtown Salt Lake City. We loved it. We loved living downtown. It was in a little bit of a sketchy area, but we never really felt unsafe. We had a lot of fun and made some friends when we lived downtown. Downtown Salt Lake City just has a cool vibe.

We lived there for 7 months before a better apartment practically fell in our laps. We still talk about our first apartment very fondly and sometimes still wish we were still there.
