Getting Back To Blogging

Well, it's clearly been a while since I have posted to my blog. Mainly because life happened, and frankly I forgot my blog existed. Starting now I am hoping to get in the habit of daily updates (and sometimes daily venting) in an attempt to keep others updated, as well as something for me to reflect on.

As of now Isaac and I are both full-time students. Isaac is getting his Master's in Athletic Training at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center and I am still working on getting my J.D. at the Law School. We will both graduate in May 2011 with high (although possibly unrealistic) hopes for jobs. Isaac is currently working on sending out applications to most of the NFL teams for their athletic training internship program. He would of course prefer to work for the Dallas Cowboys (as any true Texan would) but who would turn down an opportunity to work for any NFL team? I have accepted an internship with the Harris County District Attorney's Office in Houston and am very excited. What an awesome opportunity it is going to be!

I have also recently been elected as Executive Symposium Editor for the Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal at school. Each year we hold a continuing legal education seminar which licensed attorney's attend in order to keep their license current. I am in charge of setting up and planning the 2011 seminar. This will be a great opportunity for me to get to know people in the Probate world and (details still in the works) comes with a scholarship for next year. It has been rumored that a full-tuition scholarship may be possible but nothing is final yet. This is such a great blessing to us and a wonderful opportunity for me and I look forward to what the year has in store.

Spring break is quickly approaching (thank goodness!) and we are looking forward to some time off from school. Both of our birthdays are that week and Isaac's parents are sending us on a mini vacation to a bed-and-breakfast! We are also hoping to go to Amarillo for a few days and spend some time with his family since we haven't gotten to see them since Christmas! (Back to the birthdays for a few minutes. I can't believe how old I (ok, we) are getting. Isaac will be 25 and I will be 24 this year. And we have been married for going on 3 years now.)

Needless to say, life has been crazy and wonderful journey over the last year. I am so excited to get back to blogging so that next year I can look back over this year and see what God has done for us!!!
