Brandon got a job! Yeah!!! He started work today. I am so excited for him. He was hired as an electronics specialist at an office store in Greenville (about 30 miles east of us) and has already been told that they hope to promote him to a manager soon. We are very excited about all the possibilities, but it has also been hard to let all our free time go. Brandon and I have been able to spend every Monday and Friday together, along with weekends, for several months, and it has been wonderful! We have grown as a couple, and have really deepened our relationship these last few months, so it is a little sad to not have all that time together.
On the plus, a new job means more money, and they are working around his photography schedule, so he will be able to keep that us as well. We are hoping that this new adventure will lead us to more independence and financial security... as well as options for our future. As we said it last night, we will finally be able to move forward in life, instead of being at a standstill. Benefits will be nice, since neither of us has had insurance for the last 8-9 months or so, so it will be nice to be able to go to the doctor if we get sick.
Please pray for Brandon as he starts his new job. I know that it can be very stressful learning everything new. I will try to be better about posting... I guess being busy in our line of work is a good thing, but a little slow down isn't too bad either!!!!
