A year ago today, we were boarding a cruise ship headed to the Bahamas, enjoying our first 24 hours as husband and wife. Recently, I have reflected on how opposite this summer has been, or just how opposite today is.

We left for one of the most relaxing vacations I can remember following one of the busiest summers in recent memory. I was interning as the youth and college minister at my home church, planning our wedding, and taking a seminary class online.

We head into what we expect to be one of the busiest seasons of our life after the most relaxing summer in recent memory. We moved out to Pikeville at the beginning of June and had six weeks where Andy didn’t have anything to do and I was still unemployed. We got to spend almost every moment of it together and it was wonderful. Andy is starting med school while I’m working full-time (for the first time in my life – Praise the Lord!). On top of that, I’ll be working on finishing up my master’s by taking online classes for the next year and a half.
On both days we’ve started new chapters, but this year I have very different expectations about the relaxation level of the week to come! 🙂
