When I received my master’s degree, I was excited for a number of reasons. The main one was because I could finally apply for my dream job, which required more than a bachelor’s degree. I had my heart on teaching at the University of Tennessee, and I especially wanted to teach at the branch campus located in Kingsport. My family is from that area, and I had not been back since I graduated from high school nearly 20 years earlier. My sister gave me the website address of a really nice apartment complex so I could take my time finding the house of my dreams. (more…)
My husband the night had great fun the first time that we flew out to the Southwestern portion of the United States for the first time in our lives. We visited four states and planned to go back home as normal, but we fell in love with a couple of different areas we visited.

We have always lived in the Eastern portion of the country, and we had just never spent any time thinking about living anywhere else before this year. We’re both extremely happy with our new choice.
My mother’s family had come from Arizona, and I had always wanted to visit there, so we did. We really love the change of scenery.

We visited quite a few cities, but we really fell in love with Vegas. (more…)
