The end of summer came a lot sooner than I wanted and fall is proving to fly by quicker each passing year-
Jack and I are both back in school.
He is continuing up at the U and I’m attending The Elase Academy (medical spa esthetician). The joys of working full-time and going to school 20 hours a week! :)
I start a new job on Monday! I have worked for AMD for the last 2.5 years. I attribute my professional and personal growth over those years to working for such a great company! While I love what I do, I am looking for more growth opportunity which has been somewhat capped at AMD. I have built some great relationships with the people I worked with at AMD and plan to stay in touch! I now get the pleasure of working with someone I have worked with in the past... who is a great mentor! Opportunity for growth seems endless!
In other news, the salons are doing really well! I couldn’t ask for better business partners (Jack, Ryan, & Raschelle). The dogs are still spoiled… shocker, I know! Family is doing great- love them!
I hope to start updating my blog more frequently… best of intentions anyway!

Here are some pictures from different locations to give you an idea of the concept:

Oh my gosh... we found the cutest little ceramic garden mushrooms I just had to have (see below)! Jack also mowed and weed eated... good job babeh! :)
Spending the day with my mom and sister was so enjoyable! We definitely need to do little things like this more often.
Here are the results of a hard day at work:
Cutest Mushrooms... EVER!
Large pot again...

rain = water
water = wet dirt
wet dirt = mud
mud = my dogs digging in it
digging in the mud = not good for cream furniture

I have been thinking about you and where you are in your life and the good decisions you have made and I want to say how proud I am of you and how much I love you. -dad-
Of course I replied to the text... but I just want everyone to know how much I love my dad. I am so grateful to have him and my mom as my parents. They've guided me without pushing, they have given of themselves so us kids would never have a need for anything, and have always been there... whether it be for advice or a shoulder to cry on.
I am so grateful for the close relationship my whole family has. We are always there for one another and love getting together. Everyone fits into our family. We frequently have people asking to become a part of the Freed family. Come one, come all!

I am so excited spring has FINALLY arrived! I keep thinking about all of the spring projects I want to do this year... starting with:
- Yard work: pulling weeds, planting flowers, trimming, pruning, mowing, edging
- Home Improvements: ya know... those little "fix-it" things that you never get around to doing
- Cleaning the garage: which hasn't been done since we moved in
- Decorating the basement: we haven't really done a whole lot with the basement since we moved in. We don't have a lot to do since the whole house was redone but I want to add some of "us" into it. I would like to get some paint for the spare bedroom and "craft room", finish decorating the downstairs bathroom, and figure out what to do with our downstairs living room aka "the hole".
I don't know what it is that causes people to go into this "spring cleaning" mode, but I love it! Now that we have our own house, it is much more rewarding!
Happy cleaning, everyone!

After getting married on Lindquist Beach in St. Thomas we set sail on a private 65' sailboat. We sailed over to Christmas Cove. The water was about 20-25 feet deep and crystal clear to the bottom. We enjoyed some rum punch, some went snorkeling, all followed by a delicious meal. We had music playing, everyone was laughing and having a fantastic time. We were with all of the people we love, in some far off tropical place, and realized that "This is what it's all about". That feeling is still overwhelming to this day. A PERFECT DAY!
Here are some pictures... not that they do the day justice, but just to give you an idea:

I love having a clean house. I love cooking. I love yard work (Jack would probably disagree here too by saying I only enjoy planting flowers!)I love being responsible. Ha! Kinda weird to say, I know. I love having a home of our own. I love being married.
It's an eye opener when you realize you are all grown up. You start joining book clubs instead of going to clubs, your tastes for alcohol have changed from an AMF to a fine glass of wine, and you are going to bed at a reasonable time.
Things have definitely changed for me and I am so happy!
I have a wonderful husband, the cutest roggies, and most amazing family!
I really couldn't ask for more...

Until we venture out to the beautiful Caribbean to get married!
We are beach bound… destined to nestle our sun-kissed feet in the warm white sand while professing our love for one another… all of which will be witnessed by our closest friends and family! What more could someone ask for?!
We’ve been searching for pictures of the cruise ship online… these are what we’ve found:
Emerald Princess Cruise Ship - She's a beauty!
This is the piazza of the ship. So so so pretty!
Here is the back of the ship... I will definitley be visiting these pools!
Movies under the stars!
I be up in the gym just working on my fitness (thanks Fergie)
Skywalker's Disco: This is where we will have our first dance as husband and wife, chow down on chocolate covered strawberries, toasting with fine champagne, enjoying drinks from the open bar, and dancing the night away with our family and friends! Private party! :)
Fresh Sushi! WooT WooT!
