Full Speed Ahead

This time last year I was floating on Cloud Nine.  I had just finished a life-changing scavenger hunt that ended with Wes down on one knee asking me to marry him.  I honestly can’t believe how much our lives have changed since that moment.  
            Since then, we have moved to Kentucky, started new jobs, moved into our first home together, become an aunt and uncle, started grad school, not to mention planned (the majority of) our wedding…it’s all enough to make our heads spin.  And just when we thought things might be winding down, we decided to throw something else entirely new and exciting into the mix.  We decided to buy a house!  A beautiful house, perfect for our little family of two to grow into and fill with lots of love and laughter for the next 50 or so years.  We skipped right over “starter home” and decided to jump right in and buy our “forever home” instead.  Because when you know you have a forever kind of love, you pretty much need a forever kind of house to go with it, right?  I mean, Wes and I are nothing if not full speed ahead.  We fell quickly into an all consuming, “this-is-the-one” kind of love, so why should anything else be any different?  Life is just too short to over-think the best things, the things that make you the happiest. 

            I can’t wait to see what the next year of life has in store for us.  Maybe we will move into our new home and settle into life as husband and wife and just relax for a change.  But then again, knowing us, probably not...
