zach visits duke

When I first met my love, I was studying Special Education + he was studying Neuroscience. Though I loved Special Ed, I wanted to explore other things and changed my major to Physical Education. Zach shortly after I switched majors, switched his to Statistics. I love P.E. and he loves Stats. And I honestly couldn't imagine our lives any different.

Zachary wants to go onto get a Master's and PhD in Statistics (which sounds like cruel and unusual punishment to me, personally) and recently had his first interview at Duke University for their PhD program. For a while, our plan was to do the Master's here at BYU then apply to PhD schools later. This would be in about 2 years after he completed the Master's; however, Zach's older brother Phil is currently doing the PhD program at Duke and encouraged Zach to just apply. I mean, why not right? So, he applied to Duke's PhD and shortly after applying was invited to visit! WHAT! We were sooo excited to hear back from them…

I also just couldn't believe that those two, seemingly long, years were up + that we would get to see our Elder Moser in less than 24 hours!!

The Wednesday he got home, we woke up pretty early, ran some errands, cleaned the house and hung this cool banner. My mom asked me to make it in early January and I was really nervous about it! I mean, you see all those cute pictures of really cool looking banners for when a missionary comes home but I had NO idea where to start. Luckily, my mom had a coupon for a website that made banners so that's where I started. From there, I picked a couple fonts, a picture of the Argentine flag and picked on…
