April 2015 in Pictures

April brought us the biggest changes in our life. Moving from Orange, California away from all our family and friends to Salem, Oregon!

March 2015 in Pictures!

In March we had the last party at 1212 E. Walnut. So many people stopped by and we had a great time. I also went to my yearly sales convention for work where I was one of the presenters this year.

My Neglected Blog!

I realize I’ve neglected this blog for way too long. So I’m going to try to do something about that. I’m going to loosely promise that I will update this blog at least monthly. Heck maybe I will even do it more often than that. There is so much going on in our lives that I want to share with everyone that wants to know and for many years (even before I met Kelly) this was where I did it, not on Facebook. I’d like to get back to where this is my main place to share and Facebook is just an extension of that. So with that I will start doing some tweaking of my blog to help facilitate the change.

I will still have my blog post to Facebook since there are some people who will never actually visit my website. But I’m going to try to funnel people back to my blog/website as much as I can, because this really is where I would prefer to share my content.

The first change I have made is including a Links section over on the top right of my page. Interesting Links I find will start to be added there, and I will also send those links to my Facebook page. We will see how that works since it’s something a bit new and I haven’t fully fleshed it out. I’ll probably also add some other post format types in due time, such as Images and Videos. I might even add those now…

All of this is so I can try to start keeping my blog as I used to. I’ll post some more later today.

Has it really been 10 months!?

Here we are March 26th and Abigail is already 10 months old? How did this already happen? These past ten months have flown by with our wonderful beautiful girl and my new job! Every day with Abby brings a new day of discovery for both her and us and amazes us to see the growth in her from day-to-day. Waking up and seeing her face as we open the door to her room is always one of the best things of already great days.

Here she is playing in her Evenflo activity center or as we like to call it “Mission Control”. She loves to jump around and play all the sounds while we are cooking or doing other things around the house.

She has become a celebrity over at our favorite restaurant in Orange, The Filling Station. All the staff come by and talk to her and she just adores the attention.

I was looking back at some of my posts from when I was laid off from Time Warner Cable and realized I never talked about my new job. I’ve been at my new job now for 9 months and I’m really happy with them. I’m still training but I now get to work from home and I do some traveling around the country a couple of times a month. I really enjoy the job and all my coworkers have been great to work with as I learn about the company and more about real estate.

It actually ended up working out pretty well that I got laid off a couple of months before Abigail being born I was able to get a lot done around the house and I got to spend a lot of time with her and Kelly after she was born. Plus it’s really nice working from home!
