Upgrade From Trailer and Other Noteworthy News

It's been quite awhile since I last posted, but I've been busy.  Playing is a major priority this summer as it's the first summer that Nathan hasn't been doing school since we've been married.  Nathan is still working and doing an internship, but that's slow compared to what he has been doing.

Since we last wrote, we have moved from our beloved trailer into a bigger and nicer apartment.  Is it funny to say that we miss that old trailer?  We had so many wonderful memories in that place, I look back with nothing but fond thoughts.  I learned to love and enjoy my sweet Eden there and learned how to support Nathan in school without my going to school at the same time.  Sounds little, but it was a big transition for me.

We are still managing apartments which is such a blessing, but now my office is in my house so Eden can sleep while I work.  I already feel like I'm a better mom here than having to cart her with me.  I set up my office hours to be during her naps and I get to play with her the rest of the day.  We have some serious fun now that she can interact.  ***Note to all who do not have children yet...You will never feel cooler than when your baby is about 9 months old. (Maybe it gets even better as they get a bit older, but 9 months is all I've got to work with right now).  Eden thinks I am so funny and I love it.  If someone looked in the window, they would think I was crazy as I jump around singing and making crazy faces, but I can make Eden laugh so hard she can't breath for 10 minutes at a time.  Yes, I am in my prime.  It's amazing how little things like that can make you so incredibly happy.

Nathan and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary just two days ago.  I can't believe it's been that long in someways, and in others, It feels like it must be at least 5.  We have truly been so happy together.  I still can't believe that I was lucky enough to marry this incredible man.  We are going for a get away this next weekend, but for the day, we were able to go to a training together while a friend watched Eden.  It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary and we look forward to our overnight get away as well.  We're going to Lagoon and Raging Waters in Utah.  We don't get many chances to play without anything else to worry about, so we're grabbing it up.  Did I mention that I love all things water parks and fast rides?  So excited!

Sorry there are no pictures for this one, my camera is still in one of the boxes waiting to be unpacked.  Pictures of our new place and our adventures this next vacation week to follow.
