New Year LOTS of Changes

Alright, so I know it's been like 2 years! BUT I have had a lot of MAJOR things going on. So here's the long story short...I fell out of love with teaching. I know, most of y'all probably think I'm insane because you are all teachers that love their jobs and wouldn't change your mind about teaching ever. I thought that way at one point, but something just changed for me. Don't get me wrong, there are things that I miss greatly like seeing my smiling kids faces and chatting with coworkers and such, but teaching was not a job that I could "leave at work," and it eventually began to interfere with my life outside of school. I had to put my family first and now I'm in a wonderful place in my life. 

I worked for a chiropractor for almost a year just to have something to pass the time while my husband was working and I LOVED that job. Last February my husband and I found out we were pregnant! Yay!! I was so excited to finally start my family. Then around July, my husband got transferred to Tennessee for work. I stayed in Alabama to work and be close to my doctor while John was gone during the week. Once we knew that he enjoyed his job and that it would be a permanent position we started house hunting. Bought a house in October. Baby BOY in November. Bye Bye chiropractor :( and NOW I am working as a stay at home mom...until about 2 weeks before Christmas.

 I got a wonderful phone call from my dear friend (whose husband works with mine and also had to pack up her life and move to Tennessee) DEE DEE from Doodle Darlin. She wanted me to join her Doodle team and help get her business back up and running again. It was just a little too much for her to do all by herself with a 2 year old running around. So I am a little sad to say that this will probably be my last blog post as Mrs. Holcomb at Kindergarten Khronicles, but SUPER excited to say that I will be doing all the tech work for DeeDee. 

So to celebrate my new, exciting job, we at Doodle Darlin' are hosting our first giveaway for the year!
