Learning How to Live...

Happy New Year, 2011!

It's hard to believe that a decade has passed since I first entered highschool. Now I am married, and learning how to live with my husband. God is good, indeed!

Jake and I have been trying to find some ways to keep one another accountable with exercising, reading our Bibles, and taking our vitamins. We decided to put up a little calendar in the kitchen, and then designated three different coloured pens to do the trick: Green=growth, so this represents our Bible reading; Orange=the same colour as our vitamin bottle; Red=represents heat, and that's how you feel after exercising. For each day that we complete these things, we will simply mark down our first initial in each colour to keep track of how we're doing. I think this will help us out a lot!

Right now I'm working on making some turkey soup. It might be a bit bland, since I don't have all the necessary spices. However, I am eager to see how it turns out :)

May God grant us all another blessed year!

Hi my darling Ash,

Yes the years do go by so quickly, as you are realizing yourself, looking back on the past ten years.
I look back on the past 24 years when a little 5 pound baby came home just before Christmas and we celebrated her growth over the past two months as a 2 pound preemie fighting to live.
So much has transpired over these years as we have watched you matured into a beautiful newly married young woman who is now embarked on a new life with your beloved Jake.
It is good to see you setting high priorities and being accountable to one another to follow through with them.
I am sure your turkey soup will be delicious and even if it needs some extra spices this time round , you will have many more opportunities to season them in the future.
The main thing is that you are not afraid to try things for the first time.
It was so wonderful to see you and Jake and all the rest of the family on Saturday and we look forward to another visit with you soon again. Lots of love
