Viva Las Vegas


Well, it became official a week ago. J has accepted an offer from a company in Las Vegas to be their "main" Wound Care Physical Therapist. He is very excited about the job, the people, the offer, and pretty much everything about working! The location itself is not ideal but we feel very strongly that we will be happy and that this will be a wonderful start to the next phase of our lives. To me it feels bittersweet to be leaving the life of a student. It has been easy, secure, safe, fun, and simple. We have enjoyed--and been extremely blessed these *almost* five years we have been married that J has been in school. But alas, it is time to move on into the cruel dark "real" world.


J has done exceptionally well in school and all his internships and has been recruited and sought after by many people. I am so proud of him for working so hard to be the best at what he loves and to do the best he can to take care of his family.


We are excited for our new adventure but we will be sad to leave all of our friends! I guess its a good thing that Vegas is a common visit spot for a lot of people.

you'll get sick of me visiting. you'll love it down there, even if it does take a bit of time. Hello, Islands alone makes it worth it. ;)

I'm so excited for you. Tell the husband congrats! You'll be closer to me too! We'll have to get together now that we're closer! Good luck with the move!

I'm probably more excited about the fact that you are moving to Vegas than I should be... Marcus may very well get straight up denied at both schools he's going to apply to there, but we dream we will be there before too much longer. Either way, we now have a great excuse to visit sin city.

Congrats!!!
