Happy Birthday Noah!

Well this post is a day late but I was so exhausted last night to write anything. It was a pretty important day for Noah and I yesterday, not to mention it was Noah's birthday too! We signed a contract for our very first home! If things go according to plan we will be moving in our house before Thanksgiving! I'm so thrilled. My parents came with us because, for my own piece of mind, I wanted someone who had experience with this whole home-buying process there with us. After going around and looking at houses last week we decided to build instead of settling for the houses I could not fall in love with. The house will be built in a neighborhood in Pooler, Ga called Willow Point. The subdivision is right off of I-95 and close to work for both Noah and I. We chose a one-story, three bedroom, two bathroom house with a backyard facing a cute little lagoon. It is absolutely perfect and I can't wait to start turning it into our little nest. And one last bit of exciting news... Noah and I can finally start trying for a baby again after a long three months. I really hope to be able to spread some awesome news real soon.

Our Little Adventure

My family and I decided to drive to Helen, Georgia where we were under the impression we would be floating lazily down the 2 hour length river enjoying the relaxing afternoon. Let me tell you, this is not how things transpired. We had a big group with us, about twenty in all. We all got our floats and headed on the bus to the top of the river. We had no clue what we were getting ourselves into. Our group kind of split up once we all touched the water. Noah and I had clips attached to our tubes so we could stay together. My pregnant cousin Trecia and her family including her two year old daughter Isabella were in another tube pretty close to us. The water was super cold. That we could deal with since it was pretty hot and humid out. The water was super low so the minute all of us got onto our tubes we were instantly sitting on sharp rocks. I was worried about my pregnant cousin having to get in and out of the river and maybe slipping on the sharp rocks. We had to get out and push ourselves off the rocks (the sharp rocks like the one in the picture) and this happened almost every minute no lie. It was so pretty but we couldn't enjoy ourselves. I almost killed my ankle like three different times. So much for floating lazily down the river. I think I stayed on my float only a minute tops at a time. So the injury count for the hour we stayed in the river before we jumped out at the first possible moment: nine stubbed toes, two scrapped knees, three sore backs, and four sprained ankles.

Babies and Houses

So alot has happened in the last couple of months so I thought I'd some it up in one post. Well let's start with the baby situation. Noah and I have been trying to get pregnant since early this year. We didn't have to wait very long. In March I found out I was pregnant. We were so thrilled and we wanted to tell the world when the time was right. We didn't get the chance to though. In April I suffered a miscarriage. It was pretty devasting, to feel so excited and then so sad in a matter of weeks. I have been working on healing since then. We would like to try again once my body is ready. I'm a strong believer in things happening for a reason so all we can do now is try again. I take it day by day and slowly but surely I'm feeling more optomistic.

So as we are on a hiatus from that, other things are coming along. We are currently renting and our lease is up in a couple of months. Since there are so many benefits out there for new home buyers Noah and I thought we would look into owning our first home! I'm really happy to be getting the ball rolling on this whole thing. Today we met our realtor and we looked at some houses. It was so much fun! I can't wait to be able to decorate and really feel "at home." So we'll see how this goes and maybe I'll have some exciting news soon! Maybe double the good news!

Hello Blog

Ahh... my first post. So much pressure. I guess I'll start by telling you about myself. I'm a twenty-five year old newlywed that has been cruising through the first year of marriage. I cannot believe it'll be a year on August 2nd. How the time flies! I met my now husband my freshman summer in college at the University of Georgia. We dated long distance for the whole duration of school. I graduated in 2006 and moved to Virginia to be closer to him and I happened to land my first job there. I was there for about two years and moved back to my Savannah where I call home right after our honeymoon. I have been so happy to be back in home. I feel like I can finally settle down and start thinking about all the other things I want in my life ( like babies and owning my first home, but more on that later).

So I was not sure about this whole blogging thing but I think I'm starting it for a couple of reasons. One, because I have a crappy memory and so I think it's a great way to document the first precious memories of marriage and all our other adventures. Two, because if you don't know me, I am a very anxious person. I tried seeing a therapist late last year (and more on that later too). It didn't work for me so maybe blogging with help ease my anxiety issues some. I've always been into journaling and I have always been better at expressing myself on paper so I'm looking forward to this.

So hello blog! I embrace you!
