Today is Special...

Happy Birthday to the best husband in the whole wide world. He turns 24 today!


Let me take a second to reflect on the whirlwind year my husband has been through since June 7, 2010.

We bought a house, got married, moved in together for the first time and learned how to take care of a house. Basically, we learned how to be married. On top of that, he had to pass an extremely stressful test to be able to teach math and pulled that off right before the wedding (much to our relief). He transitioned from college life to professional life without a hitch. Scott began his new job two days after the wedding and was soon putting in 15 hour days during football season.

Did I mention he had zero teaching experience? He taught himself how to teach algebra, and it turns out he is awesome at teaching! Today his students decorated his classroom and made him birthday cards and brought him a cake. Talk about love from some high school freshmen!

We joined a church and started working with the youth. Meanwhile, we did all sorts of projects on the house, as you can see from this lovely blog. Did we have any idea what we were doing? NO! But whatever Scott doesn't know how to do, he teaches himself. He is amazing that way!

We even took our first international trip, to Jamaica for our belated honeymoon!

I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that my husband has handles this year of new beginnings with grace and maturity beyond his 24 years. I'm so proud of him, and I love him so much. Did I mention that he's very good looking? :)
