It's December...

...and, as most Decembers are, it has been busy.

I have stayed extremely well worked between holiday photoshoots and helping with Courtney 3 nights a week. Not to mention being Mom to a seriously energetic 2.5 year old who is very sensitive to being "pent up".

Matt has been at the tail end of finals week and school has started to require a little more time with projects and assignments being due.

Stress levels were just about to peak as we approached the expensive holiday season when Matt was offered a job at Boeing. Deep breath. Ahhhhh....

The timing couldn't have been better. We were just about to pass the 1 year mark of being unemployed when Matt accepted the position. A huge weight has been lifted from our shoulders and we are excited to get Matt back to the office. BOTH of us, equally thrilled :)

We will enjoy this short break before Christmas with  Matt at home for a couple more weeks and me with only a few "to-do's" on my schedule. We will get out and be a little less stressed, finally. We are thankful for the lessons we have learned during this year of trial, but we are more thankful for the options we have towards a better future.

With a steady job for Matt, more time with Sammy for me and lots of good benefits for our family, great things are bound to come our way ;)

How nice to be able to write a relaxed and happy blog. I'm glad you've made it through this hard time, and that Matt's video game skills can get a little rusty.
