I haven't updated our blog in a few weeks, because life suddenly got very crazy. And it is mostly my own fault. I was a little over-ambitious perhaps in some of the Christmas projects I decided to tackle, and I have been furiously working to get them done in time for Santa to deliver them. I have had a lot of fun working on these little secret projects for those I love, so it has been worth it. Compounding matters, I started a new job about two weeks ago. I am now working at Sakora jewelers in the University mall, down by where Randy is working. I love the people I work with, I love working with beautiful jewelry, and I love that I can clean my ring as often as I want! So it has been a good experience, and the extra income has definitely helped--especially around this time of year.
Randy is still doing well as a Living Scriptures rep. Starting the first of the year he is probably cutting back his hours there and starting to work at Sakora with me--my boss loves him and wants him to grow with the company--so that will be fun. We both like to be busy and have things to do, but we hate spending time apart (as our cell phone bills suggest).
We are coming up on our one year anniversary, and we are more happy every day. People are always commenting that the first year is the hardest, and we haven't really found that to be the case. We have been so blessed throughout the year, even through the little bumps in the road, and being together was the best part.
We are so excited to come home this weekend and see everyone. I can't wait to eat my mom's cooking, be a spoiled little girl for a few days, and to see neices and nephews (especially a brand new one!) that we don't get to see very often. We are also excited to see the new and improved downstairs of mom and dad Johnson's place! I hope everyone that is traveling this Christmas is very safe, happy, and we can't wait to see you all!
