Its that time of year… where lights are lit, and food is shared, and time is spent with loved ones. Phone calls home, holiday wishes and warm hearts are respectively filled with cheer.
My house is warm and filled with sweet smells and a healthy family, so I am thankful. We also have had many cards and gifts and surprises which made us merry and bright. But one or two things happening next year have me counting down ’till way after new years eve. Next year brings blessings and future dreams come true. Let me map out the year for those who don’t know yet! Because there’s so much good news!
2018, while it’s guaranteed to have both ups is and downs, as is ever the way of life, has plenty in store which should make it one of the most amazing yet!
We are both working more and more in new jobs and finding our own way down our paths as we plan to continue to grow together.
Bachelor’s and Bachelorette parties are in the planning stages…and March will be our wedding, small but suited to our style with armfulls of family and lots of love. We also have a cabin and a few short drives to beaches in mind for some time to enjoy this event or ourselves.
Aside from being on the remembrance of my grandpa’s Bday, the ceremony will be on the day of a full moon, which was considered good luck by the Romans.
The next birthday will be celebrated as husband and wife and the birthday after will be mine during the next dig!
Yes, I’m working as an intern in May on the Shaker Site I visited last year for a week. This coming season I will attend for two weeks and gain even more experience! Also, I will post beforehand comparing my two digs on U.S. soil thus far.
Summer semester will be time to cram in some classwork. Last semester I finished my honors classes with A’s. So I’m happily optimistic about school despite taking Spring off for the wedding.
After Summer semester, I am excited to announce that we will be taking a long distance honeymoon of sorts to Lindesfarne in September. An archaeology festival is calling our name and I just couldn’t miss it! I have been blessed with the approval to attend as an usher and literally work my way into the festival.
Info on the upcoming dig and festival can be found on the DigVentures website.
But for now, that is the most detail of next year’s plans I can divulge. I would love to visit the Midewin site next year but we will have to see if it can be possible in the midst of all the other adventures!
Thanks to all for reading! Have a joyous year end celebration and I will be back to blog next year! 2018, here we come!
