January's past

It's amazing to look back at how much I've changed, how much my LIFE has changed, just in the past 5 years.

January 2008
Jared and I started hanging out.
He had really tall hair, and I had really short hair.

January 2009
I had just graduated college a semester early but, felt like a loser at home with no job.
Literally applied for jobs day and night.

January 2010
Was a temp at my current job, still hoping they'd hire me full-time.
Jared and I took a daytrip to Indianapolis to see our first NBA game together.

January 2011
We were just a few short months away from getting married.
Started house-hunting and put an offer in!

January 2012
Our Bengals just couldn't quite pull out a playoff win.
This blog was really "born" and I consistently started updating it.


January 2013
And now here we are in 2013. It seriously blows my mind how much can happen in just 5 years! College, unemployment, a dream job, our marriage and a blog! Life goes entirely TOO fast, and a look back always reminds me of that. So here's to being able to look back in ANOTHER 5 years and see all of lifes ups and downs and hopefully making sense of them all ;)

Happy Monday!!!
