A New Year

Let me start out by saying Happy New Year! 2012 was a hard but good year. I'm really looking forward to this coming year, so many new things to look forward to. I have posted anything on here in awhile which I probably did on purpose. I tend to clam up and keep to myself when things get really stressful. Since my last post, Michael left his job at Sitel and is now working at Delta Air Lines. We feel really blessed for this great opportunity. The pay and benefits are more than we could have hoped for. Anyways, I've decided to try to get back into blogging (try being the key word). I'm staying at home now so I need something to keep me busy when I have nothing else to do. So here it goes...

In honor of the New Year I'm going to share with you my New Year's resolution. You may or may not know that my husband is French. He spend most of his life in France and he considers that his home. I used to live overseas as well. My family were missionaries in Romania. I learned to speak Romanian, not completely fluently but enough to get around. Anyways, I've realized I'm starting to lose my touch with it, and its making me kind of sad. I took pride in the fact that I knew another language. So getting back to my New Year's resolution. I've decided I want to learn French. I've been wanting to learn for awhile but have never acted on it. Both Michael and I would love to move over to France sometime, both of our hearts lie in Europe. So learning French now would be a big help for the future. I also want our future kids to grow up knowing the language so it would be helpful to know some of it by then. I told Michael about it and he seemed pretty excited about it. I also told him that I wanted his help and that the only way that I would be able to completely learn it is if he held conversations in French with me. I regretted telling him that really quick. He got all excited and started speaking French constantly. It was pretty late and I was tired so I finally convinced him to stop for the night. But I did get roped into watching a French movie, which wasn't so bad but would be better if I understood it. Anyways, we'll see how it goes. Fingers crossed!

  1. So glad to hear about Michael's job. It is definitely a huge answer to prayers for you guys! Good luck on learning French, haha! If you do it, I will be totally and thoroughly impresses. I told Joel about Michael's response, and he said he could just imagine how annoying M. would be about it. ;)
    Oh, and you guys look super cute!
