Spring Term

Spring Term sucked. We never saw each other, I worked 7-3, went to class and when I got home I had homework, then a short 2 hours later (during which time dinner had to be made, dishes washed, laundry done) James would go to work. It was hard, I knew it was going to be hard but not this hard. But it is over! James took two finals today, and feels really confident in his final grades! I took my MFG 201 final today, that class was by far the worst class I have ever taken at BYU. It was interesting, but way too much reading for Spring Term, plus a midterm or test every two weeks killed me. My bookbinding final is tomorrow night, and I love my final project. I plan on replicating it for a wedding album.

Work has been great, I was given the opportunity to go to an excel class a few weeks ago and have fallen in love with excel. It always shocks me how much excel is capable of. I feel like I still haven't found my niche again at work, but am slowly getting there. Being an analyst is different than what I was doing last time, but its a great difference. I love my job, and have started to see how what I am doing at work is actually making a difference.

James and I went to the Temple for the first time since we have been married with Allison and Jeff (my freshman roommate and her husband). It was amazing to be there again, and I felt like I took more away this time. We plan to go back again this weekend, hopefully up to Salt Lake.

James' sister Jill and cousin KT are in Ecuador working in orphanages for service. They have been there the last month and they are coming home super soon. It is exciting to read Jill's email and to look at pictures. I can tell Jill and Katie are having an amazing experience and I can't wait to hear stories and see more pictures.

I promise to upload pictures of our apartment soon, I still feel like our apartment isn't home. I think I need to hang up more pictures and decorate a bit. Cinder blocks make it hard, but we will get there.

14 days till we leave for Kentucky and Virginia. I am more than excited.

The best feeling in the entire world is waking up next to your husband and realizing he is your forever. Every single day when I wake up I just can't believe we made it through everything. Obviously I am one very lucky girl.

I finally received my wedding pictures in the mail from all events and can I just say I LOVE THEM. Without a doubt I made the best choices when it comes to photographers.

Just a taste

Now for James and I? Well we are still in school, and both have our last classes for the term on Monday. Which would be super exciting for me, except I get to do it all over again Summer Term. James on the other hand is taking a break before diving head first into Fall Semester. I'm taking four class summer, two of them are online, which will be nice. Then my last General Ed class ever, at this point I feel like some sort of GE Finishing Party may be needed. I mentioned earlier I was taking a bookbinding class, and I can honestly say it is an amazing class. I will miss it next term, mostly because it was relaxing.

Lately I have been getting home sick, and I can't explain why. James and I talked about it yesterday, and I think its because Kentucky is where I grew up. It is all I have ever really known, and I have never really moved from Georgetown. I am now living in a new state, married, and starting my own life. Its new but exciting. Not to mention in a short 3ish weeks James and I get to go to Kentucky to see family, then to Virginia to spend a couple days with the Forsgren family, all of them. We are looking forward to the vacation and some quality time with family.
