This year has marked many new things and happy beginnings for me, but this is for those of you who are curious about life as of late.
This last year has been a whirlwind of craziness and love! First of all, I met, dated, and moved in with the love of my life Joel Watson. He is a handsome, sweet, hilarious, and perfect man who works as a firefighter in three different counties. Obviously, he works hard to save lives but he also works hard to come home and take care of me, our furbabies, and our plant babies of which we have accumulated several. Anywho, I am stoked to have finally the found my soulmate and love living our new life together. There is even a rumor of an upcoming proposal ;) so I will have to post an update when it happens! hehe
Joel and I have been crazy busy with everything from my Gram's funeral to team sports (Joel obviously, I would die haha), visiting friends and spending time with family, and so so much more! I am still mourning but we have piled lots of Grams memories into the house and now I think of her four times an hour when her chimes go off to strike the time. Honestly, it has been really fun to decorate and we even have some Christmas things out already! Joel has put out the iconic red and green bulbs for me in the porch lights (one of the very first Christmas surprises he ever got me) and just the other night we finished decorating our enormous Christmas tree! It was so much fun going to the tree farm together and cut down our tree. Joel was introducing me to the idea because it is the first real one I have ever had (my sister is allergic so we grew up with gorgeous fake trees). Anyhoo, it sure smells like Christmas in here! I cannot wait for this season of giving!
