I can hardly believe I've been doing this blog thing for 5 years.
5 years to the day.
5 years ago I'd been living in Colorado for a year. All of my friends were single. My car was almost brand spankin new. I hadn't met the ear doctor. I hardly ever called my parents. My sister wasn't married and didn't have either of her two awesome kids. I bought new clothes at the mall because I didn't want to do laundry. I didn't think that lowering some of my personal standards was that big of a deal. I wore a lot more capri pants. I ate out almost once a day. I had a job that I barely knew how to perform.
And today? Well things are a bit different.
I've learned to LOVE living in Colorado...a place where probably 98% of my friends are married...most have kids. My car has a cracked windshield, huge scrape in the rear bumper and ripped off ground effect. I'm in love with my amazing husband of almost 2 years. I call my mother religiously every afternoon. I've made a personal goal this summer to not buy a single article of clothing (except for a dress to go to a friends wedding...that doesn't count). We hardly eat out at all except for a special occasion because I love cooking.
And my job? Well, today is my last day. On to bigger and better things.
What a difference a half decade makes...
