First of all, Gilles finally got his Journeyman Certificate, which means he is now a fully qualified electrician (and no more school, yay!) This is a particular relief as he missed his first two attempts by only 2% both times. Seriously.
Second, I finally decided that I did want to leave the comfort of my previous job, and move on with my life. There were many reasons for my decision, but I can assure you it wasn't made in haste - it was something I had been contemplating for a full year. Since then I have started a new job with the same position - a lateral move that I am so far very happy with - it is nice to get some marketing experience outside of airlines.
As things work out, I will be spending about a month out of the country beginning the end of this week. I will do my best to keep the blog updated - some of the travelling is for work, and much of it is our honeymoon we are (finally!) taking to Iceland. There will be lots of posts and updates here - you can expect a daily post for the first two weeks of August as I detail our experiences in Iceland and share photos.
In the meantime, I am picking up a couple small projects on the side, and on top of planning for being away, a big landscaping project (more on that later), Frisbee, dance classes and my garden it has been a challenge to try to get to sleep at night - there is just too much to think about!
Life is beautiful!
