I have never been one that likes change. I know it can be and is (most of the time) a great thing. It is the main thing I have been working on since marriage. Learning to accept change more easily. In the last year Rich and I have moved three times. For someone who doesn't do well with new surroundings that is A LOT to deal with! But looking back on each of those moves and experiences I wouldn't have done anything different. We have had an amazing life together so far and I feel like I have seen the world! I am always joking with him because I have traveled more with Rich in the last year and a half than I did my entire life! It has been so memorable and I feel truly blessed. We are now about to tackle yet another move! We have recently found out we will be moving back to Utah. Another big change for us but we have family and friends there and are excited to be with them again! Rich has had a job opportunity with the same people he works with now come up so we are crossing our fingers that everything goes well! (More to come on that later). My mom came out last week and since we know we are leaving again we did all the touristy stuff here in Kentucky! We went to the Horse Park, Keeneland, ate at some great local restaurants friends recommended, and visited one of the most beautiful cemetaries I have ever seen. Kentucky is gorgeous right now. I have really come to love it here. Also, the dog in the pics is our new little buddy. Sampson ran away from me about a month and a half ago and it was the most horrible experience. I still worry about him but we are so in love with Baxter and I am having so much fun with him! My mom found him for us and he is literally as sweet as he looks!

Catching up and meet Sampson!

It has been such a long time since I last wrote on our blog! Just to give you all a little update on Rich and I since Christmas, we are now living in Lexington, Kentucky. Rich was offered a job to be the Director/Coordinator of the Kentucky Baketball Arena here with some of our good friends. He also does ticket sales on the side to events around the world with them and actually just spent two weeks in Vancouver for the Olympics! He is really enjoying being around so much basketball for his job too! Since we have been in Kentucky I have been job searching which has not been fun! Still working on that and trying to enjoy not being so busy although I am getting a little anxious! When Rich found out he was going to Vancouver I decided two weeks in Kentucky by myself in the cold weather would be torture so I packed my bags and drove to Myrtle Beach to stay with my parents. We had such a great time and Mom and I did lots of shopping which is always the best! While I was there my Mom and I flew to Los Angeles to visit my sister and her boyfriend Kyle too! It was so great to see them and spend time with them. We had a blast. Spent the weekend eating the most amazing food, shopping, riding bikes to the beach, and best of all.... we went to a park where they were having a pet adoption from the shelter my sister works at and I got a dog! (I called Rich first of course to make sure it was ok... I had been begging him and working on getting a dog for the past year! :) ) Anyway, our little Sampson is a Chihuahua/ Dachshund mix. Since he is from a shelter they aren't sure of his exact age but they are guessing he is about a year and a half old. Poor guy looked like he hadn't eaten in weeks and was shaking in the cold. I knew I had to have him when I saw him and he has already been the perfect dog! He was so scared when I got him so he got really attached to me right away. He follows me everywhere and cuddles me to death! Not sure how he feels about men yet... he is so sweet and doesn't bite but he hides when a man is around. I hope that doesn't mean he was abused by one or something?! He is slowly warming up to Richie though and we are completely crazy about him! The pics below are of him in our apartment laying on our bed and happy to be loved and in a warm home!

Chistmas 2009!

This year we spent Christmas in Utah with all the Nashs! It was a full house and it was so great seeing everyone again! With 5 grandchildren running around there was never a dull moment! We had the best time shopping, eating yummy food (and then waking up every morning to work it off- Thanks Ang for motivating me!), building Gingerbread houses, playing games, watching movies, and just being with family. Thank you Linda and Larry for the wonderful Christmas! We were so blessed this Christmas and are grateful for all the amazing people in our lives!
