Winter is finally upon us here in Michigan. The weather has been so mild up until the last few days, I've hardly even noticed it is January. The last few days its turned colder and we've finally gotten some snow to cover up our grass, although I was hoping the mild weather would last through until spring. I could do without snow this year.

On a completely unrelated note I changed my car insurance to be combined with Mike under one policy and let me just say, being married is great!! Together we will now save $800 a year on our car insurance, which is amazing. I'm not sure how being married makes you a better driver, but I don't really care, I'm just happy to have the money in my pocket.

Headed to Seattle

I'm done with work and excited to head to Seattle for Heather and Jay's wedding! I bought a new dress and I walked out of the dressing room to show Michael. I asked him if I looked like a couch (as it's covered with a very vibrant pattern), and he said no. As I walked back to the dressing room a very elderly lady said "my, what a pretty dress". So Heather, I apologize in advance if I look like either a couch or an old lady.

Happy Birthday Jane!!

Happy Birthday wishes go to my Aunt Jane. She is so special to me, and I hate that I live so far away from her. When I am stressed or confused she never fails to say the right thing to put everything into place, and always knows what I need. She helped take care of me growing up and has taught me so many things over the course of my life. I hope you have a wonderful birthday, a fantastic year ahead. I love you and hope to see you soon!

Happy New Year

Well it's a few days delayed, but Happy New Year! I had a wonderful holiday season in Seattle and it was so hard to leave. I got to visit my family and friends, relax, and enjoy being in a big city again...although the traffic was worse than I remembered.

Mike wasn't planning on coming home until the 2nd, and I arrived on the 31st right at midnight. I celebrated my new years countown on the airplane taxing into the was quite an experience. After taking a car service home I woke up at 6:30 to the phone rining. It was Michael telling me not to be startled because he was about to open the door. He had driven 6 hours through the night to be with me...what a sweetheart. And what a nice way to start off the new year!
