All is right with the world!!!

Jared's home!!! He's home, he's home, he's home! After 2 and a half long months I finally have my husband back. He's been in Chicago doing an internship with OfficeMax Corporate all summer and he presented his project a little over a week ago.

I got to fly up and see him and all of the other interns present to the CEO and 150 other senior executives and associates, it was really exciting. Exciting for him, but NERVE WRACKING for me! I guess it should have been the other way around but Jared is completely at home speaking in front of people, I think it's because he's amazingly good at it which makes me jealous.

Jared and his friend Sebastian from Peru. We miss you Seabass!

He had one of the best presentations of the group (not just in my opinion either!) and did an amazing job on his project. We were in Chicago for four days and had a blast. I got to go up to see where his office was and meet his co-workers, everyone was so nice. It was really incredible to be in a corporate environment that was so comfortable and new and NICE! We absolutely love the company and are really grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of the program.

All of the Aggies giving a Whoop!

They announced at the presentations that over 2,000 people applied for the 28 intern positions so these interns were really the best of the best, how crazy is that! I couldn't get over it. After we packed up his apartment we headed south to meet my family in Destin for a much anticipated week on the beach (hence the lack of blogging). It was a 15 hour drive but we split it into two days so it really wasn't that bad.

On the way down we talked a lot about how much has happened during the past two years being married. We both feel so overwhelmingly grateful and humbled by the blessings and opportunities that we have seen in our lives and continue to see.

Personally I don't know what I ever did to deserve a husband like Jared. He is the hardest worker I've ever known and never lets anything knock him down, he is absolutely hilarious, he's honest and always generous and sincere - he is everything I could have ever wanted in a husband and then some. I just love him like crazy. My sister Melissa told me last week that I am more myself around Jared than I have ever been, and I think that says it pretty well. When you are with someone that helps you become the truest version of yourself without even realizing it, that is how you know. I am the happiest girl in the world, and I'm so glad he's home.


(for anyone who is gagging from me going on and on - sorry, but I bet you would do the same if you're husband was gone for two and a half months! =) so I don't feel bad)

Please tell Jared congrats for doing such a great job on his internship! And believe me - I know exactly how you feel so there was no gagging whatsoever. By the way, your hair looks great! I love it short and wavy.
