As February ended and March started there has been some changes
in this Kimler home..
For starters, If you didn't already know, Austin was offered a position
as a captive agent for Bankers Life and Causality Insurance here in Davenport.
As this is a new career move, for him, and for us
he has been working very very hard and reading lots and lots.
He started off this journey with passing his State Licensing Exam here in Iowa.
The next step was traveling to Cedar Rapids all of last week for training.
His main office is here in Davenport, but his trainer and mentor you can say
works in the Cedar Rapids network.
He stayed with friends Sam and Eric in Iowa City and drove each day.
I guess its true what they say, about not knowing
how much you appreciate someone or something until it's gone.
Boy was that me.
You really learn more about yourself when you are faced with simple tasks
that you take for granted when someone else does it.
Such as, locking the doors at night, someone else doing the dishes when you are too tired,
having the heater turned on to heat the room while you brush your teeth,
having the humidifier filled and mostly the security you feel when someone else is just simply IN THE HOUSE.
Man, I know I can take care of myself,
but it sure is nice to have someone around you
and that someone being the most special person ever..
(on our wedding day!)
This is my first REAL (open, no plans, no schedules, only one appointment, REST)
weekend I have had in a W H I L E.
Austin came home on Friday night, and since then he has been reading
and working, but enjoyment has been had.
We really enjoy being reunited.
As you might know, we try to take photos of ourselves each night and here are a few before Austin left:
and on the eve of his departure...
(more photos were taken, with a sad face for me, however,
i didn't want to publicize to the world, how unfavorably
i look when frowning, which is why i try not to do it.)
He's back. And I Love IT, and HIM.
He heads back to CR again tomorrow morning, but only for the day.
Also, for you all out there, a week from today we celebrate our
1st Wedding Anniversary!!!
