One year ago today I was working my very last day as an Environmental Engineer. It was at a job I had worked so hard for after finishing university and one that I was pretty darn good at, if I do say so myself (which I have to right now since I am the one writing this). But after years of disappointment and unhappiness, I realized it was time to move on and follow my dreams (and my heart).
(quick little side note/warning: this post is long and full of inspirational quotes because I couldn’t make it shorter nor could I think of more appropriate images)
A year ago today, Dave and I became godparents to the sweetest little girl!
Evelyn is happy and cheery pretty much all of the time and it is next to impossible to not feel the same way when you are with her. She is definitely a little chatter box and when we spent last weekend with her and her brother I spent most of the weekend listening to her babble, helping her walk (a brand new skill she has) and clapping with her and she currently loves clapping.
Happy First Birthday Evelyn!!
One year ago today was my (29 + 1)th birthday, which makes me one year older than that today (shh…don’t do the math).
The last couple of years I have done these birthday collages (see year 29 here and 29+1 here) and I have realized that I really enjoy putting them together so I decided to do yet another one this year.
Today marks the second anniversary for my husband and I. Two years ago we finally walked down the aisle and made our commitment to one another official (although, I still say that the hefty mortgage we signed a year and half before our wedding was a pretty big commitment to one another, but I suppose our wedding was much more romantic).
Last weekend was my birthday and I want to start off by thanking everyone for all the lovely birthday cards, emails, phone calls, Facebook message and posts. I also got a great response from my 29 + 1 Birthday Collage. I am so glad everyone likes reading those posts because I enjoy making them. I have gotten asked a lot what we got up to on my Birthday, so I decided to make a follow-up post outlining my fantastic day.
