Happy New Year!

So everyone is doing a post on their new year goals, resolutions, and such. I decided that I am not going to set any "goals" for the new year per se, I am just excited about all of the changes. Most of it is because all of our new things landed at the end of this year, but half is because for some reason I just feel different going into 2012. I feel like I am really starting my adult life. I know that is probably a weird thing to say considering I have been married and graduated college for over a year. But, I am going to be real honest here..I am only 22 (almost 23) years old and my husband is 28. Most of my friends just graduated college this December and some last May. Most of my friends are single and living the college life so it was hard for me to adjust to my lifestyle and try to stay connected to my friends. That has been the biggest adjustment of them all. Pete has been the most supportive and understanding husband through all of these transitions. I do not deal well with change and he always knows what to say to talk me through it. I am getting better about "going with the flow" but that is not an overnight fix :) Now a year later, most of my best friends are in the same or close stage of life as me. It is easier to relate to each other and for them to understand what I have been doing for the past year. I think this is one of the big reasons I feel so much different now. I also quit my job at the gym, which I have been working at for 4 years, that was my college job and I knew when I quit, my life was going to change in a lot of ways. I am working for my mom and learning her part of the family business. I am very excited about this opportunity and everything that goes into learning a family business. I am also still doing wedding planning and flowers on the side along with helping my in-laws in expanding a part of their website. All of these things I have talked about doing for a long time and now they are all actually happening. On top of ALL of that, we are keeping our fingers crossed that we will close on another house sometime in the next few weeks. It needs a lot of work but, I am really starting to enjoy flipping houses and maybe will make a career out of something along those lines someday, who knows! :) We also already have 6 wedding's to attend, 3 of which Pete are in and I am in 1 and doing the flowers for another!
We have a lot going on already in 2012 and can't wait to see what all God has in store for our family! It is going to be a great year!
With Love,
