What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Merry Christmas, friends!
For us, 2016 has been a year so full of new. I don’t think we’ve ever had a year so full of changes and new things.
New Baby: In January, we kicked 2016 off by welcoming Jack Isaiah Jacobs into our family. I don’t think I need to even say this, but I’m a mom so I will: He’s perfect. He has added so much to our lives.
New City: March 18th is a day we’ll always remember because it’s the day we found out where the next seven years of our lives would be taking place. Gainesville! We have loved living here and have truly made this city our home over the last six months.
New Doctor: On May 20th, Chris graduated medical school and officially became an M.D. Proud doesn’t even begin to describe it. The hard work and sacrifice that went into this are insurmountable, and to see it pay off was incredible. He’s in general surgery residency now, still working just has hard, but getting to do so as a doctor now.
New Home: Not only did we end up in a wonderful city, but we became home owners! We found the perfect house, one that seemed like it was made just for us. We went from living in a one bedroom studio apartment to a home with plenty of room and a big backyard for Jack and Gatsby. It still feels like a dream that it’s actually ours!
It has been the most incredible, whirlwind-like year of our lives.
Merry Christmas! Thank you for being in our lives, near and far. We love you.
Christopher, Chelsea, + Baby Jack Jacobs.
