Tis the Season

Hello beautiful people,

I know, I know, it has been a while and as usual, I am feeling guilty about not maintaining this blog. Brace yourselves…there will be two blog posts today! As usual a lot has been happening in our world, and we couldn’t be more excited to catch you all up.

On December 1st, I started my new job as the Georgia 4-H State Office Program Assistant. I am so pumped to finally have an “adult” job, and more importantly that I have a job that allows me to continue my education. My job mainly consists of event and program support, which allows me to travel throughout the state. In the past three months I have assisted with the state livestock show, team building and leadership enhancing workshops, the state consumer judging contest, district project achievement contests, plus the dairy and horse quiz bowl competitions. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the state office and look forward to continuing my career with Georgia 4-H. 

In December we celebrated Christmas and New Year’s with our wonderful families. We spent the week before Christmas with Buck’s family and Christmas Day and weekend with mine this year (we try to flip-flop back and forth until we have kiddos), and I think that even almost two years into our marriage we each struggle with the notion of not being able to participate in holidays and traditions as we did while we were single. For the first time in his life, Buck experienced Christmas Day away from his family, which was both new and different for him. We walk a fine line in finding “fair” ways to divide up our time between our KY and GA families, but feel incredibly blessed to have people that love us from both up close and afar all the time. 

In addition to Christmas, we enjoyed a long weekend with Adam and Whitney (Buck’s sister and brother-in-law) for New Year’s. (Buck is blessed with such an incredibly close bond to his sister, and between the two couples, we are so fortunate to have so much in common and truly enjoy each other’s company). The weekend consisted of nothing but eating, sleeping and exploring and it couldn’t have been better. S’mores were eaten, frozen fishing occurred, and all parties participated in sleeping past 7:00 in the morning. We also enjoyed see our friends Jessie and Todd and thank them mucho for showing us around the Biltmore Estate.  Our holidays were wonderfully blessed, relaxing, and amazing…we hope yours were too!

Love and Joy,

Buck & Jenna
