Time for an update

It has been a really long time since I’ve posted anything on this site, but I am going to try and be more vigilant about updating on a regular basis.

A lot has happened since my last post about the birth of our beautiful niece, Alena.

In October of last year, we bought our first home. While I was finishing up nursing school, Anthony poured his heart into renovating the kitchen and bathroom prior to moving in. Our moms helped with preparing the walls and painting, and Anthony’s brother, Brian, did an amazing job replacing the carpet in our bathroom with tile.

In November, we were blessed with another gorgeous niece, Alice Rose Allen.

Then, in December I finally finished my journey through nursing school at Cedar Crest College.

I passed the exam to obtain my nursing license in January and started my new career as an RN in the emergency department at LVHN Muhlenberg in February. My training is almost complete & I will be accepting a full time position in the ED at the hospital’s Cedar Crest site in a few weeks. I am also still working per diem in the HLA lab, which has been a huge blessing to me.  I am always happy to visit my friends in HLA and work in an environment that is so comfortable.

Outside of work, life is good. We have been enjoying our proximity to the Lehigh River for kayaking & to the D&L trail for biking and walking.

In May, we adopted Jackson, an adorable lab / husky / shepherd mix.  He is so much fun to watch & play with! Chloe has adapted well to having a dog, but Cheshire is still not sure that he likes the idea.

I can’t wait to take Jackson on all of our outdoor adventures! Anthony just ordered him a life jacket so that we can take him kayaking on the lake.

Here are some pictures from our latest adventure on the Appalachian trail.

And last, but definitely not least, Anthony and I excited to share that we are expecting a little bundle of joy on December 5th. I am very excited, a little nervous, and extremely thankful for this sweet baby. : )

This update really captures your life the past year or two!  It’s the ’Reader’s Digest condensed version’ :)  And you saved the best for last!  You know how excited I am that you and Anthony are starting a family and I pray God’s blessings on every day of your journey through the birth of your child and everyday after!  All my love xoxo
