In the past 3 to 4 months my personal life has changed drastically.  Mainly for the better, but it has taken some getting used to.  Earlier this year MG and I were in the same old routine day in and day out, which I was fine with.  One day I told him I wanted a change.  I wasn't sure what type of change I wanted but just something to spice up our everyday life.  Well no less than a month later my world changed.

*My best friend/sister-in-law {Allie} and her husband moved back to Alpharetta.  They had been living in LA for just over a year.  I knew they weren't happy here, but I thought they would move back later in the year, around Christmas time.  We have been friends since I was 14 and always dreamed of living in LA together.  I still miss her terribly, but I know she is much happier now.

*My other best friend, C, is expecting.  This might have hit me harder than Allie leaving.  When Al told us they were moving my first thought was I am going to be okay because I still have C here.  A month later C tells us her news.  It took me a long time to process this, but I am now happy to report how THRILLED I am for them.  On Saturday night they had their Gender Reveal Party.  They are having a baby boy {shhh it's still a secret for the next few days until they tell everyone}!  I couldn't be more excited.  They are making this next step work for them which gives me hope for when it is time for us to have a family.  

*Health and Fitness. This has always taken a back seat in our lives, but now it is a priority and I couldn't be happier.  I am LOVING Bar Method and am not sure what I am going to do once my trial membership runs out.  It is pretty pricey:(  

*Just be Happy!  Some days I really miss living in Atlanta especially when I read posts like this.  It is such a young city with so much to offer, but then  I have to think to myself how lucky I am to live out here.  When MG and I first moved out here we lived in Burbank {the Valley} with one wall unit for AC {it was hot} and slept on a blow up mattress for 9 months.  To look at where we started 3 short years ago still amazes me.  Some days I think that I am the luckiest person in the world.  

Nothing earth shattering has happened the last few months, but I am happy and that is really all that matters.  I am a firm believer in the quote below:)

I, too, love that quote and had it framed in my college dorm. Change is always hard for me... even if it's good change. I know things have to change sometimes for more exciting things to happen, but that doesnt make it easy. We had to take a self risk assessment for our health plan at work and last year, it asked if I had moved and/or changed jobs in the past year. At that time, I had done both. I got my results back and it said due to those things, I was a high risk of being depressed! LOL! I was like "Well, I guess other people aren't good with change either." :)
