Day Seventeen: Something You're Looking Forward To


AHHH!! Hello! You're reading the blog of an EMPLOYED licensed therapist :) I have been working (what seems like) non-stop since I started. It's been a big adjustment not being home at all during the day and also having to work at night. I'm thankful for a job, though!! I've definitely been slacking with blog posts, but I'm updating when I can now. There are so many things to do when you only have a couple hours a night... when you were used to having all day ; )

Today's post is something I'm looking forward to! I'm seriously looking forward to THIS WEEKEND. I cannot believe it, but Ryan and I have almost been married one year. It has flown by and taken forever at the same time :) I am so so so thankful that I got to marry my best friend and favorite person in the world <3 This year has been definitely challenging, but it's also been amazing. I've learned more about myself, my husband, and our relationship than I ever thought possible! haha... I know that we will continue to work to make our marriage grow stronger... but we are very excited to celebrate one year together. 

[[I love you, Ryan Keith! You make me so so happy, and you also make me strive to be a better woman. I appreciate the way you take care of me and try to do whatever you can to make me loved. You're my absolute best friend, and I can't imagine my life without you in! You're it for me forever, boo. Happy First Anniversary... we made it a year!!!! Let's have like 80 more :)  ILYMTTY BNAMAT]]

To celebrate, we are heading up to Branson, Missouri to stay in a private cabin at Big Cedar Lodge. We spent the first few nights of our honeymoon in a cabin at Mount Magazine, and we enjoyed ourselves. Since I am now a full-time working girl, I'm really looking forward to getting away for a nice long weekend :) It will be hard to adjust back to a work schedule once we get back, too. Man, I love cozying up with my boo for the weekend! It's been forever since we've just sat around and relaxed just the two of us. I'm also anxious to see if we'll get to ride in one of their horse-drawn carriages around the property... or go look at Christmas lights :) I know Ryan Keith is excited about grilling us up some steaks! We're just really excited to get away and be with each other since things have been so crazy lately. 

Here is Big Cedar Lodge: 


this is like the main lodge where all the activities and events take place. 

we'll be staying in a private log cabin like this one! woohoo!


((in other news -- I'm really really excited about Christmas... seems like I've been so busy lately that I've sort of been oblivious to the fact that it's almost 2 weeks away, haven't been shopping or anything! I'm excited to spend time with family and out of town friends hopefully coming in!))

so there's that! quick post about what's going on with me... and what we're doing soon! Glad to have a job that helps with the bills and helps other people at the same time. SO glad to have a weekend away with my hubby and reconnect right before Christmas :)

im thankful.
