To say this year has had highs and lows would be an extreme understatement. Brandon and I have had times of such extreme joy and excitement, and moments of true hurt and devastation. This was a crazy year.
2012 started with us living in Northern Virginia. Brandon had been out of work for a few months and was studying for his boards. I was teaching at a private school in the area. I was so unhappy. I hated the long hours, and the traffic, and felt like I was only home to sleep. Brandon wasn't in great spirits either. Losing your job weeks after your wedding is never part of the plan.
But when things turned around, they turned around fast. Within 2 months Brandon passed his boards, had interviews lined up and secured a job. After months of prayer, we got our answer. Georgia.
Brandon moved our things and got started in a brand new job in March. I was finishing out the school year in Virginia. We had to spend 2 awful months apart. I got to visit one time. Miley and I flew down to see Daddy in April.
