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! We went to Celebration, Florida to stay with some friends. We definitely had a blast. There is a magnificent hotel in Orlando near Celebration called the Gaylord Pa
They have a really neat exhibit that they call ICE. Every thing around you (including the bricks!) is made of ice. It's very difficult to accurately describe, so I'll let the pictures do the talking:
They handed out parkas at the beginning. They were wonderful- it was so cold!
Celebration, FL has to be the most beautiful town I've ever visited. It's a cozy little town that's all inclusive. It's got a hospital, a school, a church, homes, shoppes, and a university all nestled into one quaint little area. We'll absolutely live there one day! They have neat little activities around this time of year, and one was faux snow. At certain times every night "snow" fell from the street lamps. Arya had a blast!
All in all, it was a fantastic birthday! Thanks for all of the birthday wishes! :)
