Me a blogger?? Here I am

So I thought I would start a blog to have a journal online how neat. I am not a great speller but how ever enjoy writing, go figure. Well I guess ill start by saying that William and I were married October 3 2009 at rose sach garden in parleys canyon. (amazing) We bought a condo in bountiful that we out grew in a month. I work for a Dermatologist in Bountiful IHC. I have been in this field for 5 or so years. Its crazy busy but fun. William as many of you know was all over the place soul searching for the right thing.
After just passing our one year mark. William deiced to join the army reserves. He did some serious soul searching and was given a great opportunity to get amazing training. His MOS is biomedical equipment specialist. So he will be fixing EKG machines and other important medical equipment. He just graduated from basic top of his class(honor grad) along with getting a promotion. This was an amazing thing for him to do. I can tell he feels so proud and like he is doing something honorable with his life. He did however have to leave me behind for a 14 month training period.  Its getting easier now that we can talk. But man the first two months we sent letters(which i find to be very old school and romantic) and could only talk on the phone on Sundays. Now that he is Texas and starting the MOS training we can talk on the phone text i can also go visit. My first visit will be On my Birthday May 26. I am so excited to see him. So right now our life is about new beginnings. I feel very blessed to have such an amazing support team at home during this tough time you know being away from my husband and all. I have a couple of good friends living in our condo so i moved in with my parents. I am a hotel guest says my father. I love it and yearn for my own place. BIG plans when William comes home. Well that's the last year in a shorten post.
