In the Beginning...

It was a very Hot July afternoon in 2005 when we found out that Michael was accepted into Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCUMB). He was extremely happy and I was completely heart-broken! He had only one week to move. We did not know what would happen with us. We had only been dating for 9 months. Lucklily for Michael he decided to try a long distnace relationship. Thank goodness for cell phones with unlimited minutes and Southwest airlines!!!! It was very difficult, but made us learn to communicate with each other.

I guess he could not live without me and knew that I would not move to Kansas City unless there was a ring on my finger. So in Febuary he proposed and we got married on July 22, 2006. We went on a great honeymoon to Puerto Rico.

Then, we loaded up the Uhaul and moved to North Kansas City. I at the time thought we were in a great neighborhood. I soon found out looks can be diceiving!!!! However, we did have a wonderful first year there. It was my first year of "real" snow. We made the biggest snowman ever!! Sadly the snowman killer ran over every snowman in the neighborhood...what kind of heartles soul does that? I think the hardest thing was finding a church that we both liked. I remember Mike taking me to a church that I REALLY did not like. I huffed and puffed the entire time and Michael kept elbowing me. You would have too...all they talked about is getting everyone to donate $100, not mention the place made me think of a jailhouse. We soon agreed on a church called the Vineyard. I really enjoyed going there, but loved our small group the most. Mike even had the honor of baptizing me! We thought we would only live in Kansas City for one year and then move back to Dallas for clinical rotations. Well, I suppose we liked KC too much and decided to stay here for two more years....

We are going to try this!

We have been trying to come up with a clever way to tell everyone where we will be going for residency. The conclusion is to BLOG! We were going to send out cute little letters, but that cost money and takes up more time. Not to mention the headache of some people getting the letter before others!

No matter where we end up we are going to continue blogging so everyone that we know and love my keep up with our everyday life!
