I have been meaning to share pictures of Ryan and I from way back when!! Our families met in church when we were younger (Ryan was 10, I was 7)...Since both of our families were far away from relatives, we became family and celebrated holidays, special occasions, and many other fun times. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family...I could not ask for more supportive, loving, generous, and understanding parents. I have always disliked the term "in-laws"....So when I say parents I mean both sets of parents :) We are so lucky.
Much has happened since July 25th of last year! We have decided to join the blogging world to share with friends and family on our upcoming adventure in New York City!
Why New York City you might ask?
Well, Ryan is finishing his second year of medical school at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. We both have enjoyed our time here in Kansas City, Missouri but as his third year of medical school approached us, we had the opportunity to "branch out" and move to a new city where Ryan will finish his last two years of clinical rotations. New York City has always been a favorite place for us. It's where we got engaged and has always held special meaning. So when we heard this was an option, we jumped at the chance to make this our new home for two years!
While Ryan is completing his clinical rotations, I have decided to go back to graduate school. I will be attending New York University's College of Nursing, pursuing my Acute Care Nurse Practitioner degree. I am thrilled and can't wait to get started!
We will have a new addition to our family in June! No..not what you might think...His name is Ramsey and he is a Miniature Australian Shepard! He is living with his Florida Grandparents for the time being, as we couldn't have pets in our Missouri apartment. We can't wait to have our little guy and are looking forward to seeing his reaction to life in the Big Apple!
