Numero Uno

Our first blog post EVER! Enjoy... :)

Hello All! Well, it seems to me that blogging has become a great way to share our lives with each other these days, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I have enjoyed reading the blogs of a few of our friends, Kristy and Rebecca (who seems to have taken over Casey's blog :) and am excited to be hearing about your life. What a great way to stay connected, no matter how close or far we live from each other.

I thought I'd start by giving you a little background info on us...
Dave and I have been married for 2 and a half years, and together for a little over 6 years. We met the summer after our freshman year of college at the YMCA in Tampa where we are both originally from. It was a summer of love and little did we know, God had a life plan of love for us. We LOVE being married and wouldn't have it any other way. Dave is in his 4th year of medical school and recently submitted 10 residency applications to Pediatric programs around the country. Interviews start in November and Match Day is March 19th. We are excited to see what God has planned for us next. I am an elementary school teacher, currently teaching 1st grade, but have taught 3rd grade and Kindergarten previously. 1st grade is lots of fun and I am loving every minute of it. I had the opportunity of looping with my kids from Kindergarten last year to 1st grade this year. What an amazing experience it has been. I love my children! :) Dave and I have a black lab, named Maverick, who is pretending to be our child right now until the time is right for us to have some little ones of our own. My motherly instinct says we should have kids now, but Dave is the logical thinker and wants to wait until residency. I guess I can agree with that. :) For now, we are just enjoying the joys of being married, livin' on love, as the title of our blog states. We hope life is treating you well. Until next time... Love to you all! :)
