Jared and Mary's Excellent Adventure

Howdy y'all...

Jared and I are officially Yankees deep in the heart of Texas. We eat Yankee burgers (hamburgers or cheeseburgers with ketchup on them). We resist saying y'all and to be honest, I'm not always sure what it means....

Life is pretty good down here and will be even in better when we get into our house. All the paperwork has been done on our end and we're just waiting for the sellers to get back into town. We're buying from an Air Force family and the husband has been in Germany. So by the 14th of September we should have the keys! We'll put photos of the house up soon.

I am actually typing this on my new laptop from a hotel in Broomfield, Colorado. Jared and I are here for the wedding of his good friend Chandler. It has been a long time since I was last in Colorado, not since Jared and I got engaged in May of 2004. I really have missed it. The landscape is lovely, the weather is great (in the mid50s, drizzling a bit). Ater Florida and Texas, a little cool weather feels good. This is just a quick trip and then it's back to the grind for Jared and me.

I have started working at the United Way of Abilene as the Community Impact Director. So far so good, though I have lots to learn. Jared is in training in San Antonio for radar and electronic warfare. Cheerful stuff.

Well must run, we have to go to a brunch but I promise to post more soon. Hopefully with some pictures next time!
