"I may not have gone were I intended to go, but I think I ended up where I needed to be."
I've been very busy with work and then doing school on the side for the last 6 months. My failure to be a blogger coincides pretty well with the start of my enrollment in the BCBA coursework program at Florida Tech. With that and work and trying to form some semblance of a social life, writing / posting has been placed on the back burner.
I know that people don't check this site for updates on our lives anymore and that's OK. When we first moved to San Francisco it was a great way for family and friends to keep up with us. But now the necessary people can get glimpses of our lives through Instagram (@bhthomps) and Facebook. However, another purpose for this site was for my personal documentation of our life together. I actually really like reading through my old posts and remembering where I was in my life when I wrote those words and posted those photos. So that's what I'll do now.
In the last three years we have moved four times. We went from owning a town home to renting three 750 square foot apartments (two in the city and one in Walnut Creek) and just this last week moved into a house with so much space in it we aren't sure what to do with ourselves. Hopefully this move will be the last one for quite a while! Here are some photos of the new place:
I love the kitchen and hopefully will renew my love for cooking now that I actually enjoy the space I'm cooking in. I also love the backyard more than I thought I would. It's very private and peaceful.
So other than moving, our lives have been pretty boringly busy for the last few months. We have had our first "child" for almost a year. She's such a great dog and keeps us constantly entertained.
Coming up: vacation in Costa Rica (woot!) and our SIXTH anniversary (what?!?!). My parents are visiting this summer and Marc's in the fall. Marc's youngest brother is getting married and Marc and I both have a sibling graduating from college. Lots happening and I'll *try* to document it on here so I can at least have the record.
