I'm Baaaaccccckkkk ....

Ok, here's the plan. Update the blog at least once a week - hopefully this will prevent me from being absent for months and months and months at a time. Yikes! I can't believe I have been so absent! So many things have happened in the last year, where do I start.

Here are some highlights to get the ball rolling.
1. I've been at my job for almost a year now and am working hard, but enjoying it for the most part.
2. Eddie is interning for the City of Seattle and seems to be loving it.
3. Eddie started his program at the UW and is loving that even more.
4. We put an offer on a house in March (short sale) and we should be moving in sometime next month!

Other things to note are that I'm loving the website www.pinterest.com. It's super cute and crafty and inspiring for me. There are so many things I want to try!

I've also started reading the book, The Help. I forgot what it was like to read for fun - and to read a book that I'm really interested in and not just reading because I should because it's on a list or something (Anna Karenina was my last major read). I find myself excited to get home so I can read. It's funny. It's been years since I've felt this way about a book. I am hoping I will continue this streak!

Today for lunch was a chicken pesto sandwich. Toasted homemade bread, homemade pesto, mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes, and grilled chicken. Yum!

Homemade pizza is on the menu for dinner while watching the Golden Globes. :)

A New Year

As always, I am delinquent in my blogging, but in all fairness work (the time when I usually do my blogging) has become quite busy and it seems like it's 5 o'clock before I know it, just about every day. Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick update about a few things on my mind lately.

First of all, I am so thankful for my life. I have a wonderful husband and extended family (which has grown this last year) as well as friends who love and support me and I have a job that I enjoy which challenges me and pushes me to grow. Life is busy with Eddie being in school, both of us working full time, and still trying to find time to spend together and with other friends, but we are so fortunate to have shelter and food and love. We truly are blessed.

I've been appreciating the little things lately and the thing that keeps being put on my heart is the beauty of Seattle. I seriously do not think there is a more picturesque city and I get to see it every day! The perk of living a bit outside of the city is that when I drive in I am able to see it's glory. Driving to work on the viaduct on a clear day is probably one of my most favorite ways to start the day. To the right I get to see the city and to the left are the amazing snow capped Olympic Mountains! Especially during the dark mornings, it brightens my day. No matter how bad traffic is or how cold I am, the beauty of it all makes me sit in awe as I drive into town. I love how the dark sky makes everything look so dramatic. I'm so appreciative for these views and the fact that I get to enjoy it so freely.

I didn't take these pictures, but they are glimpses of what I get to enjoy. I hope you enjoy them as well!
