I've neglected my blog a bit! We moved back to our hometown near our friends and family, so there hasn't been much of a need to keep everyone updated. But, that's soon to change! We have a really exciting announcement (for those who haven't heard). Ryan was accepted into medical school! I'm beyond proud and we're both incredibly excited. Ryan has been working towards this for awhile, we're happy that things have worked out the way we've been planning. One of the really neat aspects of this is that we're moving to the Caribbean! The island is named Grenada, and it's gorgeous.
We're excited to be moving on and forward with this part of our lives. We just wish we could take everyone with us!! By the way, who wants to come pack up my entire house and find a place to store all of our things? And maybe clean everything for us? ;) Yesterday was my 24th birthday. It was great!

At least once a year we'd head down to Daytona and spend a week in what others called Paradise. I called it the 7th ring of Hell.
I'd spend the entire week curled up with a million books in our condo or hotel room. When reading got old I'd spend countless hours catching up on Spongebob and finishing off 3 family sized bags of Flaming Hot Cheetos. The beach just wasn't for me.
So, when we decided to move to Grenada I wasn't thrilled at the prospect of being surrounded by beaches on every side. I tried my hardest to convince Ryan to move to…
Yesterday was Arya's third birthday. Woah, time flies! We had a simple little celebration with a cake she helped bake and decorate.
For the past 2 weeks we've not allowed Arya to have any sugar. Long story short, she found every candy hiding place in our house and helped herself anytime we were distracted. So after 2 weeks of depravation, yesterday we let her binge. And oh, did she binge. Cake, candy and sugary sodas are essentially all she consumed. But hey, that's what birthdays are for, right?
Here's a video and a few photos for all of our family and friends who missed out. We wish you could have been here!
