I can't seem to keep this thing updated for the life of me. My friends and family keep reminding me to keep them posted but I have been super forgetful lately.
Kevin and I are doing well :) Things have begun to settle down a little bit since the holidays which we are very thankful for. It was getting a bit crazy there for a minute! I'm going out of town for 5 days tomorrow and will miss Kev & Albus Dumbledore :(
Kevin is going through crunch time at work but it's nothing compared to when he worked at 343. Kevin LOVES his job! The company is so wonderful to work for and we feel very blessed.
I'm hopefully going to launch the first part of my small business next month. Just depends on the business license and getting everything in order. AHHH! I will post all about that when it's good & ready ;)
This is over a month late but I'm going to post it anyways... :)
We celebrated our first wedding anniversary on August 12! We decided to plan a fun little weekend trip to Leavenworth, Washington. What a cute little town!
We stayed in an adorable cabin with a breath taking view located in Plain, Washington (about a half hour up the mountain from Leavenworth).
We ventured into the town to drink beer (when in Rome), eat bratwursts (when in Rome again), and go wine tasting (why not? We are wine-o's). It was a HOT day so we ended our day of fun with a big ice cream cone! :D
Cheers to our first year married and to many more to come!
Holy cow! It's been way too long since we have updated...
Well! A few weeks ago, Kevin won Sounders tickets at his work. We had never been before so obviously we were really excited to go! Although we aren't big sport fans, we absolutely LOVE sporting events. That may sound weird, but the atmosphere is so exciting! I mean there's good beer, good food, and you get to shout obscenities at the other team...what's not to love? ;)
My parents house has been on the market for 2 years and recently they just accepted someone's offer on it. We moved to Spokane from the Seattle area when I was 3 years old. In the past 21 years of them owning it, there have been so many memories.
My dad taught me how to sing and harmonize along with him by the fireplace.
I learned how to read with my brothers help in my old bedroom downstairs.
My pops taught me how to ride a bike with no training wheels in the grass by the barn.
I met two of my greatest childhood friends in my moms at home daycare.
On my 14th birthday, my dad let me drive the car around our neighborhood a few times, boy did I think I was cool.
And of course, two of the best weddings of all time!
That is just the tip of the iceberg! I could go on and on forever.
The house was to close on Monday May 21st, so naturally we decided that we had to go out with a bang. We travelled across the mountains to be together there one last time. It was so much fun! Looking around at everyone laughing and enjoying themselves really made me think that this is a small taste of what Heaven will be like. All love & laughter.
It was a lot more difficult to say goodbye than I expected. I know that it is just a house and that I cannot take it with me when I pass. But picturing another family living there just made me so sad. Even though it was just a house, it was my house and that house holds my memories (among many other peoples memories as well - not trying discount that at all! lol).
Needless to say, the ride home was really hard. But I know deep down in my heart of hearts, that it's not the home that makes the family. It's the family that makes the home. I thank God every day for the incredible family that he has blessed me with. They truly are my small piece of Heaven here on earth.
We had a wonderful Easter (as usual)! Honestly, how could you not? Knowing that the Lord has risen is so amazing and inspiring!
Kevin and I went to our church (Mars Hill) and it was packed! We got to witness many people coming to know Christ and being baptized :) After that our family gathered together to enjoy a delicious meal.
