In the midst of working on my new blog design (and by working on, I mean asking Katie how to do every single thing), I came across this post that I wrote exactly a year ago today:

A Year From Now....
A few conversations I have had recently have got me to thinking about where we will be a year from now and what I will be doing.
- For the first time in my life, I will no longer be a student.
- For the first time in my life, I will need to have a full time job.
- For the first time in our married life, we will not have to live in this area due to school commitments.
- For the first time in our married life, we will be able to start thinking about exactly where and what we want to be doing and actually take steps to do those things.
I like to live in an oblivious denial that we will ever have to make real life choices. I like to pretend we'll always live here, I will always be in school and things will stay just like they are.
But they won't.
These are scary thoughts for me. Hmm ... Where will we be at this time next year?
Ha! Well – let me tell you one thing – when I wrote that post, I was not expecting that in a year my fulltime job would be caring for a newborn baby, the Dude would have left his job and started his own business, or that we’d still live in the same apartment.
Once again this goes to show that when we make plans, God laughs.
So, I wonder where we’ll be in a year from now?
