Happy 2010!!

I wanted to do a recap of a few things I’m thankful for in 2009!

1. Iam very thankful for the date of May 30th, 2009, the day I married my best friend, and the man that I will stand next to until death do us part. I am so thankful for his love and support he has given me as well as others!

2. I am very thankful for our families, who have stood next to both Josh and I during this crazy and busy year, we definitely could not have done it without them! I am so thankful for their love, encouragement, and support during 2009 as well as our entire lives!

3. I am also thankful for the strong friendships that both Josh and I have made with our friends, Mallory and Kody Thompson. It was a great and busy year for the both of us, planning and celebrating our marriages. We look forward to spending many more memorable years with them.

4. I am so thankful for the job I will now hold as being a, teacher. I am thankful for the opportunities that I have been given to substitute, tutor, and now teach Communication Arts. I look forward to what the year 2010 brings me in my career!

5. I am thankful for our nephew, Drake. He has provided both Josh and I so much joy over the past year and two months! He makes us laugh and smile!! It was a blast celebrating his first birthday as well as Christmas.

6. I am thankful for our warm and nurturing home. People have always said, “There’s No Place Like Home.” And I truly believe that. We LOVE it here, but look forward to a new home one day!

Yes! I teach kindergarten in Chesapeake, VA. I am so excited for you! It is the most rewarding career in the world. I always come home exhausted, but wake up the next day excited to go to work. I doubt many other professions can say that. No two days are the same, either. My best advice: let words roll off your shoulders, keep a notebook for cute kiddo comments, and don't let the parents get to you. Have fun!
