A Year Ago...

At the end of this month, it will be one year since I said goodbye to working an 8 - 5 job and hello to a new job of staying at home and being a Realtor. If you'd have said this would have been a place I would have been at in my life, I would have told you that you were nuts.
 
Looking back on this year, I am so grateful for God's blessings on our life and the ability for me to spend more time with my daughter. These months have been absolutely precious to me. I have gotten to know Avery so much more, watched her progress, watched her personality unfold and become her very best friend. We've done so many wonderful things together and it's time that I am so grateful for.
 
I watched Avery go two days a week to a big kid school back in November.... 
 
 
and in a little over a week, she will start a new, four day a week, pre-school. This summer, she's been home with me completely full time. While I have loved to spend that much with her, she and I both ready for her to be back into a structured weekly routine. I am ready to focus more energy on work and have some time away from each other. I am ready for her to learn some great new things and meet some new friends this year. Just a few more days....
