I forgot to mention that we celebrated our four year anniversay last week! We didn't do much, just went out to lunch for some yummy bbq. It decided to blizzard that day, so Jared unexpectedly got the day off. It was lovely. We holed up at home and watched movies for the rest of the day.

Let's do a quick recap, shall we? I promise not to do this every year, as that might tend to become a little Twelve Days of Christmas - ish. I feel like we've had more happen in our lives than is normal! 

Year One

1. Jared and I were married and sealed in the Mt. Timpanogos temple. On Feb 10, to be exact. 
2. Jared left in June (yes, four short months after we were married) for a year deployment. It was incredibly hard to say goodbye to him! While he slaved away in a hot climate, I read my way through that year. I have never read so many books in my life as I have when he was gone.

Year Two

1. He came home! It was such a glorious day.
2.. Started up school again, and thankfully he only had one year left

Year Three

1. Graduation. Woo hoo!
2. Jared began working for FedEx. Love this company!

Year Four

1. After 13months of trying, we finally became pregnant!
2. Seven months later, we welcomed our little girl into the world. Two months early. It was scary. If you're new to the blog, go here for all of the sordid details. I've been seriously thinking of writing about the whole after saga, when we almost lost her. It's been weighing on my mind a lot, and I feel like if I write it all out, I can move on. I think that will come later this week.
3. We moved cross country to Memphis, TN. Enjoying life and lovin' it!

Hopefully this year things will calm down. My wish and hope is for this year to be boring and uneventful!

It seems like when I started reading your blog, you had just gotten married! Has it been that long!? That would be so hard to have your husband leave after only a few months. (Although we had a rough first year, so I may have welcomed it! Ha!!) Happy Anniversary!

I agree with Regina, FOUR years?! Crazy. I love your blog btw and I'm sorry for not commenting more, I'll be better. And your daughter is beautiful, I'm sorry for all the stress and anxiety you went through to get her here, but she's here - safe and sound with great parents! Good luck with year five! :)

I love the last part and I too agree that I hope this year will be boring and uneventful.
Good luck on your new adventure in house hunting.
