We have just come out of April. It is crazy to think that four months of the year has past but even crazier to think that Jamie and I have been married for three of them. The saying 'time flies when you are having fun' could not be more precise. Marriage is amazing, challenging, strengthening, rewarding, exhausting and fun. The best.
April contained a few changes, continuity, celebrations and a cute little cafe.
The cute little cafe goes by the name of Hello Yes. It is a cafe in Adelaide CBD, located in a warehouse and sells delicious bagels for breakfast, all day. I am blessed to have a friend who enjoys discovering new places as much as I do.
Our continuity and changes live most among work and study life. I have continued work at an out of hours school care, while Jamie is now the official manager of his Optus store (after being the 'acting' manager for a month). Yay! Biggest change so far is that I differed from university. After many prayers and conversations, I took the leap and chose to stop my teaching degree for a year, whether I go back or not is what I am still working out. This was a leap that I had thought about for a while but was very hesitant to do. I didn't want to jeopardise my future if I was meant to fight through the struggle of uni life. However, the same day that I made this decision, I was reminded about a program that was running for the first time, beginning this month. The program is called Big Year Out (which gives me a Certificate 4 in Christian Life and Ministry). Perfect for anyone trying to find some direction in their life and learn more about our wonderful Creator. I was on the phone right away and within a week was attending the Uniting College. I haven't looked back. God has taught me so much already and I'm excited for the future.

Jamie also started playing basketball and I started playing mixed netball this month. We were very thankful to not only have the opportunity to socialise each week in our local town over sport but also to run off all of that party food and chocolate we had eaten this April! It has been a yummy month.
Hope you all had a great fourth month of the year.
