August 6, 2011 marks a very important date in the Moon household; it is our one year anniversary. The past year has been absolutely amazing. Previous to marriage we did not live together, as a matter of fact, we didn't even live in the same city... Over the past twelve months, my husband has been working on teaching me how to relax and not worry so much. He also goes along with most of my crazy ideas and for these reasons, among many others; I love being married to him.
August 6, 2011 is also important because it is the first official day that I will be unemployed. I am walking away from a successful career in which I met many outstanding people over the past four years. This job no longer seemed like the right fit and I was constantly badgered by the feeling that I was wasting my time and talent. After much consideration and support from my husband, I have decided to walk away.
I am currently working on applying to grad school. I will not find out until the spring of 2012 if I am accepted into the program. In the mean time, I plan on doing everything I can to take advantage of this time and work on living the life I always imagined. I am going to volunteer, get a fun part time job, devote time to my hobbies, transform our kilt-like kitchen and other rooms in our house and cherish the extra time I get to spend with our family.
I plan on chronicling these adventures in my blog to share with you. I will also be snapping photos with my phone of objects/experiences/etc. that simply make me happy. Once a week I will share with you my 'research' on living the life I always imagined.
