And just like that October came and went in the blink of a eye. It’s hard for me to think that it is already November and in just two months, we will be entering into a new year. I’m already beginning to think about my goals and dreams for 2017, but I have to remind myself that we still have two months left in 2016 and it’s important to finish this year strong.
A lot has changed for us this month. Jamie got offered a new job and our marriage and faith in the Lord has been strengthened more than ever through this process, as it was probably the biggest decision we’ve made so far in marriage. I’m so excited for him and his future, and I can’t wait to cheer him on as he embarks on this new adventure! To celebrate, we took a trip to Tulum, Mexico. Yes, as you are reading this, we’re probably laying on a beautiful beach or eating delicious tacos with chips and guacamole. I promise to blog about our trip later! One of my main goals for 2016 was to love Jamie well and know him deeper. Each time we take a trip together, we leave feeling more alive and connected, which is definitely what we need after the full month of October. I’m looking forward to getting away, turning off the distractions and spending a whole week of quality time together, just the two of us.
