A year and a half of the greatest adventure of my life
Wow, it has been since New Years that I have blogged. So much has happened over the past 2 1/2 months. Many times I have wanted to blog, but my mind has literally been overloaded with emotions of all kinds, and school, which has been exceptionally trying. But I can now say, that I know where probably almost every muscle is in the body, and almost every function, which was so overwhelming. But I honestly think it is so cool that I am learning these things about the body. I have a new-found appreciation of the body and its amazing creation. It truly is mind-boggling. So with much studying and hard work, I managed to get 3 A's in Advanced Massage, Acupressure, and Professional Development 2, and a wonderful B in Anatomy 2. I now get to look forward to the nervous system, in all its complexities, in Anatomy 3 next week. I really am excited for it. We had our intro lesson last week, and it was fascinating. We also are taking Pathology, Cranial Sacral, Movement and Assesment, Sports Massage, and we will be starting Clinic soon as well, where i get to massage people every Saturday till October. That will be so cool, but no more weekend trips! It will be completely worth it when I finally graduate. I am so excited to be halfway through!Today is our year and a half anniversary. It is so sureal sometimes to think that it has already been that long. It hasn't always been easy, but I love my husband more and more everyday, and I am so blessed to have him. He is my very best friend, and has been a huge support to me these past 6 months since school started, and life threw some curve balls at us. There have been some events in both our families that have been so disheartening that have occured, and its easy to feel like Satan is winning sometimes. This world is becoming harder and harder to live in, but I know, I KNOW, that If we don't give in or give up, God will take care of us. He is always there, waiting and willing to carry us when it is just too hard to walk anymore. I love my family more than anything in the world, and I know things will work out in the end. Apart of this struggle has been the economy. A few weeks ago, I was laid off from my job of almost 2 years and at the same time, Scott's work became severely slow. It was so scary and strange to leave a company that I cared about so much so suddenly like that, but I know everything happens for a reason. I was very blessed to receive a job only 1 week later. I work as Real Estate Assistant for a good company, and I am hopeful that we will be able to get in a house with the help of this company. We will see. As far as Scott's work is going, things have been very slow still, but I have faith that he will find something. The only scary thing, is that if Scott doesn't find a stable job within the next week, we won't make it through April, and will have to move in with my parents. We are very grateful that they are willing to let us come, but we hope that we can remain independent.Life is full of hard choices and experiences, but it is also full of wonderful and exciting ones too, and it is so worth it. I love my life, and i love my husband, and I am grateful for these last 18 months of the greatest adventure of my life; Marriage.

I have a passion for birth and empowering the mother and facilitating healing. I have been married for 9 years to my very best friend, and am a mommy to my adorable son's Carson and Ethan and my beautiful daughter Sophia with another on the way!
