Making a Match

Did you read in my last line in the last post that I hope to re-enter the workforce? It just seems like it's time. Bryce's schedule will become more flexible soon which enables me to stretch my wings.

I'm lucky to live in a big city where hundreds of jobs are posted every day. The only problem is that I don't know what I want to do but I DO know what I don't want to do. It made me think of what it's like for my single friends in the dating world--there are tons of men out there but most of them are ones you want to avoid. Ha. Just like my friends who eventually find Mr. Right, I am confident that I will eventually find a good match. There's a job out there with my name on it.

Speaking of Mr. Right, guess what yesterday was . . . our 17th wedding anniversary. Woo hoo!

I wrote this message on facebook: I loved my wedding day because it was the start of what I love even more--my marriage. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who has strengthened me, supported me, and cheered me on for 17 years now. He is my partner in everything and truly my best friend. I love you, Bryce Jones.♥

It's true. I am a lucky girl. We celebrated by eating at a Thai restaurant called Naga. I had yellow curry and Bryce had Pad Thai, both delicious. It's crazy to think all we've been through and what we still have to look forward to; it's like a lifetime condensed in 17 years. In some ways it feels like it was yesterday but in another it feels like it's been an eternity (in a good way). How did I know what I was doing all those years ago? I have no idea, but thank goodness we're both committed to making our lives together work.
