With all of the wonders of the first months of marriage has come a couple of low moments for Ryan and I. We, as a couple, have been wonderful but life has just been plain hard since our October nuptials. First, I came home from the honeymoon and immediately had to go back out on the road for work (my own fault). Then, my car broke down right before the most expensive time of year, Christmas. So not only did we not have any money do to presents, and no car, but we had also planned to make a trip to Ohio to see my Dad and family. That meant we had to drive Ryan's gas guzzling Jeep the 15 hour round trip to visit them. It felt like the monetary black hole we had entered would never end.
