And so it begins...

My new blog that is!! I'm sure you all understand us newbies don't know what we're doing-so give me a bit before it's fabulous! I am here to share the love (and funny stories!) of my family, my friends, and my sometimes crazy life.

First a little background. Wes and I got married on November 18, 2006. We have an amazing 5 year old son named Chase who just started Kindergarten last week! *sniff* We have a low key life, which I love, and friends that are amazing. We also have family as close as next door and as far away as Pennsylvania. I am hoping this blog can help us keep our Philly family updated!

In recent news, I am currently unemployed! AHHH! The thought excites me and scares the crap out of me all at the same time. For the past three years I have worked for the same transportation company my husband works for. He is a systems administrator and I worked in billing. During those three years I also went to school two nights a week at a Mercer University regional center that was minutes away from work. As of Friday, I am now just a full time student. Early Childhood Education requires fieldwork, student teaching, and a lot of TIME that simply could not be juggled with a full time job....

...but let's be honest. I hated my job! I sat in front of a computer all day punching in numbers and had absolutely NO passion for it. The sad part about leaving is simply the change. That place has seen my separation, my son's broken bones, holidays, my Wes and our marriage, too many tears and so many laughs. It brought me Katie, Maggie, Heather C., and my husband! When I drove away Friday, I felt like I was leaving an old friend. An old friend who's been a pain in my ass for years, but has still been a huge part of my life.

So...a new journey in my life, and a new blog to record it along the way. This next year I am going to be absorbed in school work, and hopefully substitute teaching in between for extra experience and a little bit of extra money. I will celebrate my first wedding anniversary, and my first holidays without my dad here. I will graduate from college and I will smile from deep down in my soul when my Heatherbean has her Fekadu home! Throughout it all-'celebrate we will'...

..oh...and BLOG we will!! It's already my new favorite hobby!!
