As I welcomed 2015, I couldn’t believe that a whole year as passed since moving here. It’s been a crazy, amazing and beautiful year of exploring all aspects of life as a military spouse newlywed. I’ve learned so much about myself and still feel like there are a million more things to learn.
I’ve never been happier and look forward to everyday!
Last month, I mentioned that I been out of touch on some things (i.e. blogging). Among the million more things to learn, I’m continuously learning how to balance everything in my life. In 2014, I’ve been living by the moment with even my thoughts in flux. My husband and I have been enjoying sightseeing and being married. Here’s just a small list of 2014 life changes and adventures (good, bad and the ugly)!
The big PCS: This one was definitely not as big as the PCS cross-country road trip I took with my husband in 2012, but it was still a big one for me because I moved too!
Wedding in Texas: The year of planning our wedding finally came to pass. It was an amazing day with all our family and friends. I’m looking forward to celebrating our first anniversary later this month!
Amazing honeymoon in the Caribbean: The day after our amazing day, we shipped off on a wonderful cruise honeymoon!
Officially started working as a freelancer: Working from home
has been amazing and it also helps that I love everyone I work with.
