Oh, that must be the sound of our blog heading straight for the ground. Don’t worry, I am catching it right before it explodes in a fiery death. So, I know I am lousy at keeping people up to date. But it’s been a rough 6 months. I haven’t had a job and our lives have been pretty non-existent. So there hasn’t been much upbeat to write about. BUT, given the winds of change are upon us – I figure now would be a good time to get back on the saddle and slap that horse in the ass (pardon my french).
So here we are… July, and I am finally starting a new job! I have taken a position as the NC Ad Coordinator for Weddings Unveiled Magazine. Woo Hoo!! This has been my first week and so far, its been awesome. I am super excited. I get to stay at home, make phone calls and work on my fancy laptop. Things seem to be picking up speed and it feels great.
Chris and I went to Vegas to celebrate our anniversary. Are you totally and completely shocked?? C’mon, be honest… I didn’t think so. With a Vegas nut for a husband, I wouldn’t expect anything less. Chris planned the whole trip, down to a surprise couples’ message at the hotel spa. Aaaaah. It was fantastic, and chris loved it too! We had the best time in Vegas and I am so lucky to have Chris put so much thought into the trip. We were able to see two Vegas shows, front and center and eat at some of our favorite restaurants. We had a great time and 5 days to think about why we got married and why we still love each other. I didn’t have to think that much, but maybe chris did 😉 I am pretty sure we have another trip on tap within 6 months.
May was more of the same, me looking for jobs, with not much success. However, June came around and with that, my 26th birthday. I got to celebrate in style at Carrie and Keaton’s wedding with Jana. The weekend was beautiful and a ton of fun. P.S. For those of you who have not made their way to Jana’s blog – you are sorely missing out. It is awesome and you all need to check it out. It’s clever, funny and very delicious. But that is enough advertising… after interviewing and waiting, interviewing and waiting for two jobs – I was offered a position with Weddings Unveiled, after one week! It was great and Chris and I breathed a sigh of relief. Actually, it might have been the first time Chris breathed in 4 months.
Of course, as we do every year, Chris and I spent July 4th with the entire family at mom and dad’s place in the mountains. Seeing all the kids and everyone together always warms my heart and reminds me that no matter what state my life is in, it will always be the best when I am with my family. I came from something stronger than myself. They aren’t all the most adjusted, they aren’t all know-it-alls, they aren’t even all the easiest to deal with all the time. But they are all mine and they are wonderful. And back off, because everyone of my nieces and nephews are the cutest humans ever born. Sorry, that is just how it is.
I know its not the coolest update, but it will get us on our way. I hope everyone is doing fantastically. We miss you, we love you and we are blogging again.
