Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been busy but minus that excuse just a little unmotivated to blog and not sure why. I'll try to get better at this. Since the last time I blogged, I've gone to Chicago with my mom, sister and Aunt Susan. Alan and I went to Canadian for the 4th of July to see Bart & Becki. We also got to see Charles and Gayle in Miami and Andy came to Canadian too! It was a lot of fun. I'll post a few pictures from those events. This past weekend I went to Dallas with my family to attend Susan and John's annual pool party. We had a really great time except Lauren started feeling sick so we ended up coming home that evening, it was a quick trip but I felt bad for poor Lauren. The highlights were getting to see Britney, Megan and Chloe!!! Chloe is super cute :) Susan asked when we were going to have one of those and I informed her it will be a while, I think she understood. I am in the process of planning our 1 year anniversary! I can't believe we have already been married one year! God has truly blessed us during our first year of marriage and I am looking forward to the many blessings, memories and exciting adventures we'll experience this next year! Highlights of our first year of marriage - spending all holidays together, being table leaders in the Newly Nearly Wed Class at church (a class we took when we were engaged and was truly beneficial to our marriage), getting a puppy, moving into a 2 bedroom apartment and having more room to grow, house hunting and deciding against a house, and I think mostly just learning more about each other has been the best part of this first year! I think between Alan's spontaneity and my predictability we complement each other and make a good pair! I love my husband!!!!
