We were living in Las Vegas while Jon went to graduate school at UNLV. He completed his first year with almost straight A's. He truly enjoyed school and studied very hard. While he was going to school he was an intern at the Water Department for the city of Las Vegas. However due to the economic struggles that this country is facing, he and many others were let go. So here we were...going to school, trying to raise a family and jobless. As hard as he tried to get interviews for various jobs..no one was hiring. We were at a stand still. Months have gone by and he heard that they were hiring out in Washington. Where we moved from before living in Vegas. He flew out there, hoping to find success at the job fair, put his resume out there and worked the crowd. Fast forward to a couple months later....He gets a phone call saying that they wanted to interview him first over the phone. That was a success. Now they wanted an in person interview back in Washington....And that was a success!!!!!!! He got a job offer and there was NO turning back. It was a hard decision whether or not to finish school in Vegas and just hope we get a job...OR...put his masters degree on hold for a little bit and move to Washington where a job was waiting for him. Not just a job-but a career. We prayed about it and knew that we needed to move back.
So there you go. That is how we ended back here in Tri Cities, Washington. We're loving every minute of it. This place truly feels like home.
Jon's new job graciously put us up in Corporate housing until we were able to find a place of our own. We originally were just planning on a month but finding a place to call "Home" was a little bit more difficult than anticipated. We were given permission to extend our stay at Corporate housing for another month. However we didn't need that much time being that I found an apartment that had an opening and that just so happened to be our number one pick, was also somewhat close to work, affordable, really nice, BIG and on the bottom floor!!!

The following day, July 16 2005, we had our wedding reception in Torrance, California. It was so much fun! Filled with dancing, great dinner, great cake, amazing decorations, an awesome DJ, lots of laughter, hugs, kisses, and tears. It was a perfect way to celebrate our union as husband and wife.
We look forward to another 4 years and another 4 years after that and so on and so forth. Happy Anniversary Essay!

Then there are times where she refuses to look at me. When she see's the camera in my hand she turns the other way and pretends I'm not even there. Maybe she is trying to look natural? haha..Who knows with that little one. She marches to the beat of her own drummer.
