May Blessings

In my last post I mentioned that we had been through a few trials. Well, this month has brought some blessings.

First, we celebrated our four year anniversary. Hard to believe, right? We had a pretty low key evening but it was so nice to take the time to remember each other and why we have chosen this life together. Living with and loving Jon is easy.

 We even got some updated pictures, which was a lot of fun.

Second, we got a replacement car. I don't have a picture on here- but it is a nice four door, 1997 Honda. I cannot even tell you what a blessing this has been for us. With our car getting stolen last month we were in a state of limbo. We looked at every possible option; our families were helping consult with us but nothing was feeling right. The car we got is Jon's dad's old car and it is perfect for us. We can now go back to appreciating the daily routines of our life.

Our third blessing is getting this little love bug:

She is as cute as she looks. Larue (Dr. Larue, as named after the character in Horton Hears a Who) is my graduation present from Jon. We picked her out together, but it was primarily my project since I have wanted a dog for a long time now. Since school and work at the clinic is wrapping up this is the perfect time for me to put in the energy to train her.

She is currently 3.5 lbs and wont get bigger than 8-9lbs. She is very sweet, energetic, and teething! But she is definitely trainable and while she has kept my hands full, she has been a joy to have in our little home.

It is refreshing to consider all of the blessings in our life right now. And as far as we see it, there are only more blessings to come. I graduate next weekend (June 10th) and family is coming, we are very excited. This summer has some exciting things planned- family reunions, weddings and mini-vacations. We welcome June with open arms.
