My First Blog Post

Now that me and my new wife, Brieann, have finally settled in here in Washington, we've had a lot of time to ourselves. Much of this time involves quiet nights together, reading, watching TV, or playing video games. Having so much time to ourselves with few distractions has led me to do a lot of thinking, a lot of self reflection, and some looking back at where we came from, while casting thoughts towards our shared future together. It is these quiet moments of reflection I wanted to try sharing tonight.

Since our wedding on December 18th, the one constant that pops in to my head on a daily basis is thankfulness. I find myself being reminded not only daily, but sometimes hourly, how amazing of a partner I found. The peace of mind she provides me, the reassurance, and daily companionship sometimes make me wonder how I went 23 years without!

We have both agreed that it is time to get out of the military when my initial 4 year contract is over in January of 2012, and are both greatly looking forward to that date. It is the time after my getting out I find myself looking towards in these quiet moments, and I honestly can't wait. I can think of no one I would rather enter into a new phase of life with than my wife.

We love and miss everyone in Fresno! We have the most amazing group of friends and family either of us could ever have asked for. May God bless you all today!
