This past year has been absolutely crazy! Our lives have been full of busyness and blessings.
Nearly everyday for this past year I have thought to myself, "Gosh, I really need to do a blog post today..." And of course, I went the whole year with out journaling our lives. I am so sad that we are missing documentation of that first year of marriage, but our free time was well spent with each other.
Now that I have a bit more free time, I wanted to look back at some of the memories we have shared this year together...
January through May was such an adventure for us. Jordan was taking over 18 credits, working as a chemistry TA, working as an EMT at BYU, doing research, and studying for the MCAT. I was going to BYU part-time in the mornings, and then spent the rest of my day at the Studio finishing up my cosmetology licence. And alas, we did it! We got through it as we rarely saw each other. But, the hard work payed off. I got my licence and Jordan got a Med school interview to the U.
We stayed with Jordan's sweet friends that live in Mexico city. Jordan baptised Rafa, the father, while on his mission for the LDS church. This is a picture on top of their apartment buildings that they own, and live in. I loved seeing all the clothes lines up through-out the city as a constant reminder that I was no longer in the US.
This is the drink we believe to be the culprit of my stomach illness.... it was delicious though, cinnamon and cocoa.
Rafa's amazing wife Christina and their son Rafita.
FRUIT EVERYWHERE!!! I love it. Their mangos were the best...
They sell fresh honey on the streets along with honey comb! YUM
The yummiest taco shop in the world. Seriously, I am craving them right now.... And they have mango drinks, which is frosting on the cake!
We came home and back to school we went. I am just working on getting my BFA in Music Dance Theatre and Jordan will be done with his degree this April, and then on to Med school.
Although the year has been busy, I sit here looking at our Christmas tree thinking of how much I love living with Jordan. I couldn't have asked for a better husband and best friend.
