Twelve months later, she has grown so much - and so have I. Our lives have changed a lot this year when I stop to think about it. Let me count the ways:
1. New jobs. I left my super stressful job after a year and a half for a much slower paced one (that came with a huge pay cut). It was a "big kid" decision for me, one where I ulitmately chose my happiness and health over the almighty dollar. My husband also started working full time for his uncle after a string of temp jobs following being laid off for a year.
2. I turned 29. Not a monumental occasion, but next year's gonna be a doozy.
3. One year of marriage under our belts. We celebrated our 1st anniversary in Nashville in June - the first vacation we've ever taken by ourselves! It was a weird time to go because it was just after the big flood they had but it was still nice to spend time together.
4. The trials and tribulations of homeownership. We endured a roller coaster ride as we tried to sell, then ultimately rent, our condo to find a bigger house that felt like home. We lived with my inlaws for several weeks in between, and are now loving our new place while still figuring out how to be landlords!
