The year began with me midway through my first year of teaching. It was a struggle but I was enjoying every minute of it, while D was celebrating 4 years at his current job.
D also took one step closer to 30. He has been aboard and riding for a while now, but he has quickly started his descent on "The Flight of the 20s". Of course, we celebrated (or mourned?) accordingly:
Soon after came another reason to celebrate: I graduated from grad school...
...with my SISTER!
D and I celebrated one year of marriage by taking a trip to one of my favorite places: Massachusettes. We spent a lot of time in Salem:
July brought good news while I was away at a workshop: I got rehired!
Yet another reason to celebrate...My coworkers and I had a great time!
August brought about some GREAT memories while on vacation... THIS being one of them:
...although I'm not quite sure D remembers that one all too well. Or maybe he would just like to forget. ;) We had a good time on a great cruise with even better friends.
