It has been a little over 2 years since I've updated a journal or submitted anything to DA. My life has changed so much. I do wonder who actually watches my journals now, but I'm not really writing this for anyone other than myself.
Last time I wrote, I was recently engaged to the most amazing man I have ever met. We were married on August 5th, 2012. I have never and will never regret my decision. Which is good seeing as it's a lifelong commitment. I didn't think it was possible to be loved so completely by another human being. He has shown me true love. He's not a perfect man, but he is perfect for me.
I'm in my second year of teaching in public high school. The first year was rough, to say the least. I moved to a different school this past year and I am much happier. However, this is not at all what I want to do with the rest of my life. After I've paid back my scholarship loan in two years, I fully intend to quit teaching.
My husband and I live in a beautiful two-story house in the woods with our cat, Neela. She's a brat, but my husband loves her, so she stays. It's quiet in our little rural town. That's how we like it. However, in a few months, our world is going to experience some big changes.
This past January my husband and I discovered that I'm pregnant. I still smile when I get to say it, "I'm pregnant." As I sit here typing right now, I can feel the soft flutter of our sweet child moving. Tomorrow is the appointment for my 18 week ultrasound, in which we'll know the gender of our baby. We're not hoping for either a boy or a girl. We're praying for a happy, healthy baby. We couldn't be more excited for or in love with someone. Someone we haven't even met yet!
I'd like to say that I'll update my journal more or submit art, but my life is not really positioned in that direction right now. I love to draw and I always will. I know that one day I will come back to my "hobby" in a more committed way than ever.
