New Beginnings

Today is the beginning of our new life.

Pumpkin was laid off the 1st week of December.


He had been with his company for 15 years - since graduating college. There was no notice, no hint, no CLUE. Just called into the office and told he was laid off.

Needless to say, our life was turned upside down.

It has been a stressful couple of months.


Today, he started the 1st day of his NEW job!

He is working for an consulting firm that audits general contractors.

It has ENORMOUS potential for our family.

The only drawback is the travel. We have been extremely lucky our entire marriage for him to have been home. He's never had to travel. It will be a huge adjustment for all of us.


Congratulations, my love!! I am ENORMOUSLY PROUD OF YOU!


  1. So glad to hear that he is starting a new beginning. Travel is now fun. For the first 2 years of my relationship w/ my husband he was traveling. Sometimes he would be away for 2-3 nights during each week. It sucked. He had owned his own company now for a few years and though it can be stressful atleast he is home every night! Congrads!!

  2. You can totally do this. Congrats on the new start!

  3. Yay for new beginnings! My husband travels a lot, too, so I feel the pain. But having a job is worth it! :)
