Time marches on
I neglected to mention it at the time, but this past Tuesday was the one-year anniversary of my graduation from law school, and Wednesday marked one year to the day since we moved to Knoxville. Wow!
It's hard to believe it's been that long. Time flies, I guess, particularly when we're talking about a year that began with Loyette being the size of a kidney bean and ended with her approaching five months old, growing and learning and changing every day -- so much so that it sneaks up on you, and you're amazed when you ponder memories or look at pictures from even a couple of weeks ago, let alone a couple of months. At this point it's hard to remember what my life was like in February, never mind December... and as for May? Fugghetaboutit.
Anyway, I guess this milestone means I've now officially concluded my first year in the "real world." And wow, what a year it's been. I know I don't talk about my own life in this space as much as I used to; I guess the combination of having a baby and starting my career have caused me to show a wee bit more discretion in terms of what I blog about. But suffice it to say that, on all fronts, things are going very well, and I'm really, really happy. And the anniversary of my graduation seems like a good moment to stop, take stock, and give thanks for all my blessings -- most especially the one who is currently sleeping soundly in the other room. :)
