Couldn’t have been in better company today for an adventure today in NYC. I haven’t been since I was 11! Two of my favorite humans in such a magical, crazy city. ✨❄️
My little work space in the new apartment is coming along quite nicely ✨

Yes, I am a grown woman at a petting zoo and I’m obsessed. This cow/bull and I had like a connection, okay? Seriously tho, animals possess something beautiful that humans do not and it captures my heart. I’m an animal lover through and through. I’ve cleaned up monkey poop and scrubbed pee off a Jaguar’s log while in HS at the Zoo magnet. I’ve laid on the floor willingly while my mom’s giant Great Pyrenees jumped on me, and received countless “kisses” from my Jack Russell terrier. I grew up with Golden Retrievers, cats, birds, hamsters, and short-lived fish. My cats, Merry and Pippin, are basically my life and I’m a cat mom for real. Contrary to my nickname of “G-Raffe” and what everyone seems to think, giraffes are NOT my favorite animal (but we get each other). Polar Bears have my heart and soul. My ultimate dream one day is to have a little farm and enjoy as many animals as possible. Thank you Lord for the blessings of animals, and thank you for petting zoos!

It's past midnight and I can't sleep so here's yet another throwback to my favorite part of Switzerland two and a half years ago because Switzerland. 🇨🇭

It's a rainy day today here in Charlotte and it couldn't be more welcome. We still have some warmer than usual for fall days in the forecast, but today is a happy change of pace. 🌨🍁

One year down, eternity to go!
Our wedding was such a special day for so many reasons. We waited long and hard for this day, going on 6 years at that point. From an eventful day on Twitter to an Orthodox Church in North Carolina, who woulda thunk?? (Shout out to William Lane Craig/Reasonable Faith Ministries for technically setting us up!) And to be surrounded by our loved ones... our friends and family from across the US and the world who have been so supportive of us throughout our relationship... that was special more than words can describe. I remember looking around the room at our rehearsal dinner and beaming with joy to see our beloved people from different points of our lives. Marrying each other with them all there made our union all the more sweet. 💕
A year later, we can't say it has been easy. Living together for the first time, navigating relationships with family, finances, the whole shebang; it's been tricky, and sometimes, to be honest, really really difficult. But I am so grateful for this Orthodox Christian faith that we share and grow in every day. You know, I never thought I would get married in a church, least of all an Orthodox one! (PSA, I was called "Mary" during our ceremony because that is my patron saint, St Mary of Egypt, adopted when I became Orthodox.) Life always surprises you! And I wouldn't trade this life in beautiful, ancient Orthodoxy with the love of my life for anything in this world. I so look forward to the next chapters of our lives together. Buying a home someday, starting a family (no I'm not pregnant, sorry mom), and whatever else God blesses us with. Thank you to everyone who has been completely supportive of us this first year and shared in our happiness. We love you!
And I love you, my darling husband and soul mate, Basil Andrew Polivka! 💏 📷: @lindseyplevyakweddings 💖

Welp, our plan to go to Disney World for our first anniversary didn't work out because of the hurricane. Boo. But, we realized we hadn't been to Charleston in over 2 years and it was time to go back. Ready for a long weekend with my love in the beautiful low country to celebrate our one year of marriage! 💏

Tonight is our last night in our first apartment, our first home together as husband and wife. I'm going to enjoy the space our new two bedroom apartment provides, but I can't help but lament the loss of this little space we've known and loved for the past year.
We've prayed, fought, ate, snuggled, binged tv shows, housed multiple dear friends, raised our kittens into cats, and learned so much about one another in this place. I'm a sentimental soul, and each time I move it gives the feels. But this move, the first in our marriage, has me a bit more weepy. 😢

Y'all. It has been such an incredible time back in my home state. I saw so many beloved friends and family and I wish I could have seen more! I think I literally drove a collective 800 miles driving all over SoCal. But for real, this introvert is ready to go home tomorrow and snuggle my kitties, my hubby, and not move for a month or two. #LAX2CLT
