Kara accepted a job in Batesville with Hill-Rom, which will begin soon after we get married next summer. While she is in Batesville, I will be working for Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati, which is likely where we will be living next summer as well. We are both really excited, but we haven't had much time to explore the area, so we decided to take a small day trip last weekend to look around and also celebrate finals being over.
Our second stop was actually at the Batesville Wendy's. In a crazy coincidence, we actually ran into the man who hired Kara to work for Hill-Rom next year. He and his family seemed like really great people, and I can see why she is looking forward to starting her job next year.

Anyways, we stopped at the art museum next, which was officially our first visit together to such a place. They had some really awesome paintings there, but my favorite part was an old armor section that they had that included spears, knives, swords, and bows. Somehow, it brought me back to the Lord of the Rings world. (I always watch a trilogy during finals week). Kara's favorite part was probably the exhibit that had about 50 wedding dresses, which covered a time period from about 1850-present. Even though she liked it, I can't imagine her wearing almost any of the dresses in there....but maybe I will be surprised.

Overall, we enjoyed our trip and are looking forward to experiencing everything else the area has to offer in the future....hopefully we will have plenty of time for that in a few years...
