A New Chapter Begins...



Where to begin...where to begin...

I guess I should first let you all know that I'm not with le baby (yet), if that's what you were wondering by this post title. ;) If you follow me on instagram, I kind of already spilled and you've probably already heard the good news, but there is no way I would miss dedicating a whole post to this.

As of yesterday my husband accepted a new job (picture me doing a giant happy dance here). Not just a new job, but a new career. For the past couple of months, he has worked towards it and made it his ultimate goal to get this position and HE DID IT. Let me just say, the waiting period was not easy for us. You are pretty much just sitting there waiting for the phone to ring with the news you want to hear, but at the same time it makes the end result so worth it. Worth every little second. The weeks that we waited and waited to hear that they picked him for the position suddenly feel like mere minutes...


It was in this moment that I realized his happiness and his success is better than my own. To see him reach a goal means I've reached a goal. It all goes full circle and that is one of the best things about marriage...supporting each others dreams and celebrating together when they happen.

And heck yes, we celebrated. All day yesterday, actually. tears. cards. a fancy dinner out. lots of dessert. and I mean LOTS of dessert. you get the idea. It was just one of the best days I've had in a long time. With new opportunities comes change and while that can be a scary thought, we are welcoming this change with open arms. My husband is one of the most goal oriented, hardworking, driven people I have ever met in my life, and it's one of my favorite things about him. I know he is going to thrive in this new job and I think I speak for the both of us when I say that we can't wait for this new chapter to begin!

Take that, 2014. We love you already.

  27. Congrats to him!! I definitely understand about the part about his happiness. When my husband landed his dream job (and each step along the way), seeing his happiness was everything to me and I can't remember being happier than in that moment!!

  28. Love all of those quotes-agree that it's really about persistence and hustling than other qualities that gets you to your goal.
