Life's obstacles... and triumphs..

Wow, it has been a while since we have blogged, and for that I am sorry. Hopefully
we haven't lost your interest. 

I seems life has gone a little fast since March. Lets start off from March.

We shared our first year of Marriage on March 14th. We continued with a 
Kimler tradition by bringing your alter flowers for the alter at church on the Sunday closest
to your anniversary. It was wonderful. I surprised Austin by getting our wedding cake for our
anniversary and some special cupcakes for him!! 

We had breakfast with the whole Kimler family at the Lodge Hotel where our
reception was. It was great and we also got a beautiful book of our wedding pictures 
from Austin's Sister Valerie. 

Then came a really interesting surprise for us. Austin was called one day and asked to come in
for an interview at a local sign company in Bettendorf. He was learning so much
from working at Bankers and wasn't looking for a change. His luck and
obviously good looks charm landed him this new job. 

Austin switched quickly from selling insurance to being a full time Graphic Designer
and has been busy ever since. 

My job has has some serious learning experiences and for that i have learned and am 
grateful. Its not always easy, especially with some rude, disrespectful and lazy co workers.
Overall, I am really happy here and am glad to continue learning. 

Some other news, besides having birds in our wall, and now our basement/computer room/laundry room 
flooding and trying to get a hold of our landlords, it has been mostly a lot of doctor visits for me. 

I'm not going to get into too much detail, i guess for the sake of a emotional never ending rollercoaster long post. If you don't know, I have type-1 diabetes. As i have had this for sometime, it is never easy
nor fun to deal with. With that, i have also had some other complications with my liver. Sometimes i just don't know what to say to do. Nothing I CAN DO will change anything.
I know i have such a supportive husband and family (THANKS I LOVE YOU)
but it is still just so frustrating. Its just hard to handle life, when your
body has different agendas for you. 

Anyway, Sorry to be Debbie Downer. We have been staying pretty busy but trying to soak
up as much life as we can, because everyday is a new day
and we must be thankful for that. 

If you wouldn't mind sending some prayers this way for some 
reassurance and hope that whatever happens, i really
can make it through. 

Thanks again for following. We will try to update more frequently. 

Hugs and Kisses,
