My first post...

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for visiting my first blog. I will take a moment to briefly update you on our story.

The one year anniversary of the purchase of our first home (in Pickerington, Ohio) is this coming week, and I am so surprised that it went by so quickly. I will post some pictures of our house in progress later, but over the last year we have made some great changes to the down stairs. Currently, we are attempting some dramatic changes to the upstairs, and I will post about that later too.

In addition, to our house being an on going topic, so is our work. As many close to us know Chris and I are always working (or Chris is always working and I was always working or in school). I have successfully completed my 8 years of college experience (4 undergrad, and 4 post grad), and I am happy to say I am working as a Paralegal (focusing on Litigation support and Legislative Tracking/Analysis) for a insurance company. Chris is entering into his second year with a software development company, where he currently serves as President (we now have a President in the family). Both of us have exciting jobs that keep us on our toes.

Outside of work, the new obsession of the day (well this one I have a felling is going to last a few years), is RUNNING. Chris has decided to train for his first marathon (we have tried to figure out when he first thought up this craziness, but still can't place it). As many of you know, Chris has been running for fitness for several years (since college), and if you also know Chris you will know that when he sets his mind to something it nearly always means he will accomplish it.
So fair warning right now, I am sure there will be many future post concerning his running adventures. As for me, I had nearly given up hope (and concluded I was just a wimp). For several years I had attempted to take on running too, but continually failed when it became too painful. I never really asked why it was painful or thought something might be wrong. However, this past spring I decided to go at it again (even got fitted for shoes), just to find out that I have really screwed up feet (high arches that roll outward, Chris calls them duck feet). Anyway, I have decided to stay committed to trying to take up running, so today I had my first day of physical therapy. I am sure I will post more about this later.

Finally, no post about the two of us could be complete without mentioning the love of our lives, our prince, Jinx. Jinx may become the star of this blog in due time. Keep a look out for more stories about his crazy life.

Well, that is all for now, thanks again for reading and I hope to share more with you soon.
