Reflecting back

Well, today is New Year's eve and I've been thinking a lot about this year. 2008 has been a very sad and tragic year, as well as happy.
I found out I was pregnant in April, but it ended in a miscarriage in October.
I got married to one of the best guys ever in December! I also ended up with an awesome family.
I also lost a pretty good job, but ended up in another one that is so much better even if it is a step down from what I was doing in the past.
There's so many things that I look back on that I wish never happened or wished it would have gone a different way, but it makes me more excited for what 2009 is going to bring.
We're getting a new president, Aaron's going to graduate, I'm going to return to school, we're going to go home back to Ohio so Aaron can meet the rest of my family, and so much more.
My attitude has changed so much in just this past year. I'm so much happier and more calm.
With that said...Happy New Year to everyone! I hope it's a great one for you all!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Yes, today is Christmas and it was a busy day!
I went to meet the rest of the inlaws on Aaron's dad's side of the family. They seemed to be very stuck up. I didn't care for them much, except Aaron's cousin, Nick, who I've known for awhile.
We were there for 2 hours before we decided to move on to the next house...my sister's!
We had Justin and Carrie with us and I was nervous because...well, my sisters and brother can come off a little too strong, but Carrie and Justin loved them! It was good to see them. I wish I was about to go to Stephanie's to see my nephew, but she wasn't answering her phone.
After being in the valley all morning and afternoon, we headed back into Anchorage to go to Gramma and Poppy T's house to have Christmas with Seth, his parents, Cindy, Tony, Caden, Zak, and the grandparents. I had fun. My family was never really into being together all the time, so it was nice to have that sense of family around the holidays. Aaron's family does EVERYTHING together and I think it's so awesome!
After Gramma T's house, all of us came home and we had an AWESOME seafood dinner....crab legs and scallops. It was so delicious!

What is wrong with people?

I just want to remind people, I'm happy with being married. I think I made the right choice for myself. So why do people have to keep talking shit? It's really pissing me off.

MARRIED!

I'm so happy! I am now the new Mrs. Brown!
Aaron and I tied the knot at 2:30pm today at the Nesbett Courthouse. It was a very tiny ceremony with just Aaron's parents and a family friend. Some of the family members are hurt that they were not invited, but Aaron and I really just wanted the 2 witnesses required by law. We don't have a lot of money and wanted to wait a year to have a huge ceremony when we renew our vows. I'm going to enjoy my 2 day stay at the Hilton!

I'm getting married tomorrow!

Well I'm sitting here packing for a small honeymoon that we're having. We are going to stay 2 nights at the Hilton hotel where we're going to pamper ourselves before I go back to work on Monday.

I'm so nervous. I keep questioning myself if this is what I really want or if I'm making the right decision. I think I am. Other people on the other hand keep telling me I'm going to regret it or that I'm making a huge mistake. It seems to be the girls that Aaron knows that are making the comments that it's a big mistake. Aaron tells me that they are jealous or something. I think I'm making the right choice. I've loved Aaron for a really long time now and I'm happy with him. I'm helping him with his school work so he can better himself so he can get a great job. In turn, I'll go back to school and finish so we can make something of ourselves and have the great house we always wanted.

After saying this, I know that I'm not making a mistake.

I'm so excited for tomorrow!!!
