4 Years

I just read a post, on a blog called 'Story of My Life', about how much and how quickly life can change. It inspired me to write one of my own... so here goes.

In the past 4 years (plus a few months) these are some milestones and changes that have taken place in my life:

  • I graduated from college with a bachelor of science in architecture degree.
  • Spent 6 weeks in Europe drawing and learning more about... well, about everything.
  • Moved from Michigan to Colorado alone when I was 23, and I drove myself across the country with all of the belongings I would need in the back of my jeep. Road trip!
  • Got my first snowboarding pass. Made lots of trips to the mountains.
  • Lost some friends... and made some new ones too.
  • Worked my butt off waiting tables in a restaurant in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
  • Found my first architecture job at a firm south of Denver... then was laid off from that firm.
  • Met the man I would marry!
  • After being let go from my first architecture job, I quickly found my next one... where I stayed for 2 years.
  • Lived in 4 other places other than the apartment that we live in now.
  • Was laid off from my 2nd architecture job. (umm... this is a sign)
  • Started a blog and began sharing some of my life on the internet.
  • Nate asked me to marry him, and of course I said "yes!".
  • Planned a wedding, and got married to the love of my life. <3
  • Honeymooned in a chilly southern Florida, and had a great time with my husband! :)
  • Became a season ticket holder for an NFL football team, Go Broncos! (Nathan, thank you for getting on the list early)  ;)
  • Saw my first Cirque du Soleil show.
  • Lost my dear grandmother, she was definitely one of my biggest fans.
I could probably go on and on... but these are some of the major milestones and changes that have been a part of my life. I cannot believe that I turn 28 in just over a couple of weeks, because it sometimes seems like just yesterday that I was leaving for my move across the country. How time flies!

Have the last few years of your life been moving as quickly as I feel mine have?

  1. Oh my, those pictures are too adorable! You've had a few bumps, but lots of exciting things happened too. Just the type of adventures you should be having in your 20's.

    Yay, for February babies. Emily turns 2, and I turn the big 3-0 in a couple weeks. It's the first B-day that's actually is freaking me out. Mainly because the 30-40 age brackett is the most competitive at races.....And because it sounds super old :P
