A cupcake made by my fellow classmate in my new education adventure.
It was made for our engagement.
Oh! Did I forget to mention I was back in school?
Or that we’d gotten engaged?…,well, read on.
So, 2018 was a big year for us.
To name a few things that occurred:
In 2018, I…..
1. said goodbye to my Jeep Wrangler and hello to my “grown up” truck.
Yeah–tough decision for me.
I loved my Wrangler—-
except when I drove it on highways.
and in wind.
(and generally any time I was driving above 35mph when the temps weren’t about 75, it was sunny and no wind).
I LOVED it then!!
Other that that, not so much.
So now I have a truck that does all fancy things like has power locks and gears that shift themselves.
I’m a sellout. I know.
2. started up in school again in a certification program for Alzheimer’s Navigators. The program is the first in the country.
Still working out the kinks of a brand new program, but so far it’s interesting.
It’s a small cohort of 10 dedicated, creative and caring women who want to really fuel a change in the way society thinks about people with dementia and other neurological issues.
I’m really excited(ok, nervous and excited for where this may lead).
3. got engaged.
Yes. I know.
You’d have thought there would’ve been a post about this earlier and I’ll go into more detail later.
But, yup– I got engaged.
Wedding date set for 02-29-2028(I’m only half-joking there).
4. got a new house.
Yes. We’re moving.
At some point.
Again, long story I’ll get into later but Cael is excited, so I think it’s the right thing to do.
Sooooo…with all that’s happened in 2018, I’m not quite sure what’s left for 2019?!
Cael and I had a few rough patches the past–well, decade or so.
We’ve both been incredibly fortunate(blessed? lucky?) to have had that all take a more positive turn.
I hope you all experience peace, happiness and contentment in the year to come.
Happy New Year!!
