I miss writing, I miss posting, I miss updating and being able to go back and read something and see how far I have come... Or how far enough I haven't come yet. It has been over a year since I posted any blogs. I think I have come a pretty good distance since then. 365 + days is a lot to cover so I will try for just the highlights, good and ugly. I lost 45 pounds, although I can't take credit for 6 of them. I ended a job and then started a new one. I went almost nowhere. I did not much. :) I left off in May of 2013, I will illustrate with pictures more than words. :)
June was filled with beach combing, our good friends, the Flores', welcoming Bella into this world, and I was still working at Elecraft in Watsonville.
In September, Ryan and I went to Las Vegas for his sister's wedding. This was a fun adventure that included bowling, casinos, tattoos, wedding festivities, and swimming.
In October... This is when I lost 6 pounds by simply being put to sleep. Yes, this is how many pounds of BOOB that were removed in my sleep. My Mama came over and stayed for the first few days. Between her and Ryan I was so blessed to be taken care of. This was an intense recovery process and I ended up being on disability for nearly 6 months.
So then in November I mostly just got visited since I couldn't move much. A few ladies from our church would bring by meals and gifts. So precious and loving these women are to me.
February brought ink, house-sitting in the redwoods, cheesy moments with Midge on the beach, and Jake into our home.
Also in April I started working again and started my job at San Lorenzo Floors! I am super excited for the opportunity and I have been majorly welcomed into the family here. I actually look forward to going to work each day.
In May I settled into my new job, got used to getting back to work, and started exercising again. Jen and I flew Mama to Washington for Mother's Day.
June came along and we celebrated Father's Day in Alta. Got to see my sister for the first time in 5 years. We fished, relaxed, and hung out for a couple of days.
