Wow, have I taken a hiatus! A 25 day hiatus to be exact! In those last few weeks we've had a 4 day visit from my husband Mark's family, and 8 day visit from my parents and granny, I've started a new job (which I'm loving!), and we are in the process of looking for a new place in Dallas!
Wow! Life has been crazy! I very much enjoyed spending time with our families. The one thing about living 1,000 miles away from home is that you can't just hang out anymore. Phone calls and Skype just cannot compare to bike rides, lawn chairs and drinks, home cooked meals, and fun adventures with the fam. With all that said, I absolutely love living in Texas! I miss my sweet home Chicago everyday, but boy do I love it here!
At this point in my life, there are a lot of new beginnings. A year ago, my husband and I, moved here! It was like the second I got that diploma, w/in 2 weeks we were on our way to Texas. Crazy. I spent 10 years, my 20's, as a dental assistant. Then, poof, all the sudden I'm an apparel designer. Well, maybe not all the sudden, I did spend 4 years in College. However, it has been worth it. All the changes, all the growth, even how different I am now than I was "then". It's all been amazing. I am so blessed to live in such a great place, have a great job, a loving husband, and an awesome family.
Today, I encourage you to count your blessings.
