Exciting Things

In addition to Jordan's birthday, we have had a few other exciting things happen recently. These exciting things have been a long time coming, and probably (hopefully) wont happen again for a while. They were both totally new experiences for both of us, and boy are we glad they happened!

The first exciting thing is that Jordan has...

Earlier this month Jordan started his first, real, grown-up job! With insurance, and a salary and everything! We couldn't be any happier! At the end of April, Jordan started an internship, which was only supposed to last until August or September. It was great experience for him, but we were always a little bit nervous about what would happen when that ended, especially since I would just be starting my student teaching (a time where I'm not allowed to work). Luckily we didn't have to worry too much, because Jordan's last day at his internship was August 30th and his first day at his new job was September 4th. It couldn't have worked out any better. (Things were a little bit stressful when it came down to accepting the offer, but that is a story for another day.)

It's also exciting that Jordan is able to use his education in a way that he loves, and that all of those hours studying and working hard paid off. I'm so thankful that Jordan was able to find a job, especially since not all graduates these days are able to get a job right away. We feel really lucky and blessed.

It is so strange to finally know where we will be for (at least) the next 5 years. It hasn't been like this ever. I will admit that it was really hard for me to accept the fact that we will be in Utah for a while, but I know that this will be good for us and that Utah has lots of pretty places, and nice people, and family close, so it's ok. I know it will be good for us.

The second exciting thing is that we...

That's right, we got a new car! After a few weeks of trying to get me to school (in South Jordan) by 7 and home at 3, and Jordan to work (in Salt Lake) at 8 and home by 5, we decided it was time to become a 2 car family. We have always been just fine with 1 car and loved that we could always make that work for us, but those days are no longer.

It wasn't brand new, but new to us. It's a 2009 Honda Civic with a little less than 30,000 miles on it and we love it. And I'm actually the lucky one who gets to drive it. My commute is shorter than Jordan's and we would rather put the miles on our older car, than on the new one.

Things are going well. We are happy and healthy and taken care of, in more than one way. This is just one of those times where I can step back and take a look at my life and realize how blessed I am, and how things happen for a reason.
