. . . to post something on my blog! I decided to create this blog, so our friends and family can keep up with what is going on in our life. Not that we are particularly interesting or have exciting lives or anything. Nope. We're just regular, everyday people. Let me catch you up on what's been happening in the past year or so. . . Both of us have very good, but not so glamorous jobs. Jarrod has started a new job working for Entergy. He is a substation repair technician. Which is a great position to be in. He won't (hopefully) be climbing any poles like the Linemen do, but it has it's dangers. Right now he is working four ten hour days, so he has Friday and the rest of the weekend off. He is really liking his job and has already received a pay raise! We have good benefits and that counts for a lot! I am working for Cullum Seeds. My title there is the Loyalty Marketing Specialist. But I do basically whatever needs to be done that day! Mainly, I work on customer based projects like newsletters, programs, letters and mailings. I do some in-house publication design, I handle the event planning, and our wearables program. I like my job and the people that I work with, so for me it's a great place to be. We have recently moved to Jonesboro and bought our first home. We love our new house! It's just a little less than 1700 sq. ft. , but to us it's a castle! There are still a few things that need to be done before we are "completely" settled in, but we're making progress! We really like living in Jonesboro. Having resturants and shopping within a couple of miles is great! For now it's just Jarrod and I and our cat, Taki. She is a stray I found hanging around the barn just weeks before we were married. So after the wedding we adopted her and now we just couldn't imagine life without her. She is an unending source of entertainment. For those of you (you know who you are) who keep asking "When are you going to have a baby?" . . . . we are planning on starting a family in the near future, so this blog is a step in that direction, too! So, please keep us in your prayers! Right now a big part of my free time is filled with my hobby, that is quickly turning into a part-time business. I create custom invitations, annoucements and stationary. This is one of my many creative outlets and I will be sharing my projects on this blog as well. Hopefully it will stimulate some more business for me as well! That's all for now. Check back soon . . .but not too often. It may take me awhile to get in the habit of posting! Love to all!!
