A year in the life. . .

As of today, I have been working at my "new" job for a year. This is a milestone in many ways. I have been in Missouri a year, I have been working my first real job for a year, and I can say that I did not live with Liz and Bruce for forever! Yay!

And crazy things have happened in the last year. When I started this job, I was nervous in so many ways. I didn't know how I'd do working a real full-time job, I didn't have any friends at the time, I was afraid I would get complacent and live with relatives for a really long time (Just until I pay my car off. . . my student loans. . . finish saving for retirement. . . etc. I get too comfortable sometimes.) But things just kinda came together. Who woulda thunk a year ago that I'd meet a guy and get married after six months together? Who'da thunk I'd fit so well at my job? Who'da thunk I'd be a Sunbeam teacher (yes, that's our new calling as the ward's newlyweds), much less a RS president and first counselor in the span of less than a year? And who'da thunk I'd be so happy in Missouri, or misery as people keep telling me it should be called. I can honestly say, that despite the trials, and stress of the last few months, I am content.

I love you Mike!
