Wondering what we’ve been up to for our first week in Wisconsin? Well, it’s been quite the whirlwind.

After driving 19 hours, we finally arrived and received a phone call we had been dreading… my beloved grandmother had passed away. Safe to say, that we were beyond heartbroken. My parents helped move all the furniture and clothing into our apartment and then caught a Monday afternoon flight home. Mark and I spent Monday & Tuesday unpacking and trying to get settled.

We left Wisconsin Wednesday at 5am and arrived in NJ at 12pm and went straight to the funeral home. We spent Wednesday & Thursday healing with my family and coping with this absolutely devastating loss. My family and I are besides ourselves and are trying to pick up the pieces, but we are now blessed with the most beautiful guardian angel.

After an emotionally draining week, we arrived back in Wisconsin on Friday at 2pm. We plan on spending the weekend getting our apartment in order before I start my new job on Monday. Wish we luck!!
