Back Again!

It's interesting how fast time flies, even when it doesn't seem like it. From the last time I posted to now, there have been so many huge things that have happened and have made my life so much more than I expected. Since my last post, I FINALLY came to my senses and got married...best decision I have ever made! The first year of marriage has been a great experience and I look forward to many, many more.

I've made some changes professionally as well. Unexpectedly, a position in the NICU where I work opened up and I was allowed to transfer from the cardiac floor to the NICU. It has been a wonderful change that has opened up some different opportunities and has also introduced different challenges. I believe I have been able to grow more professionally. It has been a struggle, but it has been a great experience so far.

Last but not least, I made it back to Washington, DC. This was an unexpected trip. The last time I was out there, I thought I'd never make it back. As my wife and I were planning our first anniversary, I found out she had never been to DC and was very interested in traveling there. We had a great time! I was able to show her around the historical sites and relive past memories. It was a great time. The three of us had a wonderful time! (and luckily baby cooperated and let mommy enjoy DC before the sickness and fatigue started).

And there I leave the post. I don't know if anyone is still following this blog...if you are, I'm grateful. If not, well, I guess this was a great journaling experience. Until next time :)
