Fresh Start Means Blogging Returns

So here I am, embarking on yet again another new adventure. How lucky am I?!

I started this journey excited, then nervous, then scared, then stressed, now totally giddy with excitement about this exciting journey I'm about to begin with my favorite person.

Josh was presented with an amazing opportunity to have his own store in Baton Rouge and has been there for a month, living in a hotel, getting the store on a path to success. I am so proud of him for his accomplishments thus far and can't wait to see what is in store for the future.

In the meantime, I've been preparing to join him there. We had to make some tough decisions but I really feel this is a wonderful move for our future, together and for his personal, professional success. There have been many bumps in the road, many still waiting to be smoothed out, but I know God is in control.

We're only a month in on this journey but I already feel we have grown closer as a couple, he has grown as a professional and I have grown as an individual. I have learned to trust God even more and I truly believe we have so much to look forward to.

I hate that I haven't been blogging lately because there have been so many things going on but I want to take this opportunity to pick up the habit of tracking my thoughts, logging our experiences and documenting our journey.

I hope our friends and family will follow us as we begin this new chapter of our lives, explore a new city and continue to grow. Please stay tuned to this blog and my Facebook as we post pictures and new and fun experiences.

Much Love,

I watch your life as it unfolds and I am reminded of the words of the great father of education, Comenius, a simple but observant man.

"The proper education of the young does not consist in stuffing their heads with a mass of words, sentences, and ideas dragged together out of various authors, but in opening up their understanding to the outer world, so that a living stream may flow from their own minds, just as leaves, flowers, and fruit spring from the bud on a tree."

And for Josh, "If, in each hour, a man could learn a single fragment of some branch of knowledge, a single rule of some mechanical art, a single pleasing story or proverb (the acquisition of which would require no effort), what a vast stock of learning he might lay by. Seneca is therefore right when he says: "Life is long, if we know how to use it." It is consequently of importance that we understand the art of making the very best use of our lives."
