Happy Monday, friends!
My poor blog has been totally ignored for the past month-ish. At the beginning of December I was slammed with studying for finals, decorating for Christmas, etc. I decided that I wanted to try to cut back on social media and truly soak up my first married Christmas, and that is exactly what I did! Then New Years came, our first anniversary, I started rotations for PA school, and life happened. And before I knew it, it has been embarrassingly too long without giving this blog some attention. So I apologize, but it was a much needed break for me to re-charge!
You see, I never intended for this blog to be an added stressor to my life, and that's what it had started to become. I don't want anything to take away time from my husband and my family. I decided I needed to step back and focus on what really matters. Spending 15 hours in the operating room and trying to be somewhat sane when I get home to my husband does not allow time for thoughtful blog posts. However, I have decided to just do my best with this little space of mine. I will write when I have time, and I will not get disappointed when I don't have time.
This is what I have been up to in pictures:
We had our PA school pinning ceremony which marked our transition out of the didactic phase and into clinicals!
We spent much needed time as a little family over my Christmas break sans studying. I spent far too many hours on the couch watching HGTV with a glass of wine in hand.
We spent our first married Christmas with both of our families. It was SO much fun to start our own traditions! We both looove Christmas. We spent Christmas eve and Christmas morning with my family. We got to watch our niece open all her Santa presents. She was so excited, it was adorable! Then we drove the 45 minutes to my in-laws and spent Christmas night with them and G's huge family. It worked out perfectly!
On December 28, we celebrated our 1 year anniversary. I cannot believe it has already been a year! We took a short getaway to the beach where we enjoyed lazy time together and reflected on the past year. I truly hit jackpot with my hubs. He only gets better every day. People say the first year is the hardest and if that is true, we will be just fine! I love that man more than words.
We found out that we are going to be having a NEPHEW in June!!!! Excited is a understatement!
I started my first rotation: surgery! It has been such a great experience with some loooong days. I have truly enjoyed it but I don't think this is the field I want to work in.
Thanks for being patient with me while I took my blog-cation. Hope you have a great week!!
