Here goes nothin....

Hi loved ones.....
Here we are in the 3rd week of the new year and 3.5 months into our marriage. It is so amazing as I sit here and think about where we were this time last year. God did some incredible things in 2007...we got engaged on January 24th....bought our home in March....fixed the whole thing up...planned our wedding....married....honeymooned....and got our first pet! It was an amazing year. We feel so blessed to have such an amazing family and group of friends who surround us.
We are so excited to see what 2008 has in store....We are off to a good start! Chris started a new job yesterday. He is still with Enterprise just a different division of the company. He is now an "Account Executive" for the Rideshare department. We are excited to see how God is going to use him there and all that He has planned. He is a little overwhelmed and completely exhausted right now, so keep my sweet husband in your prayers. :)
My job has also changed a little, for the past two years I have been working at our church in Anaheim Hills as the High School Administrator. It has to be the best job in the world (for me anyway). It may not make me rich but the joy I get from doing my job and serving the Lord is priceless. I am now the "Youth Ministries Administrator" so what that means is I now have Jr. High along with High School under my scope. It has been a challenge the past couple weeks but I'm really excited to dig into it. I am in the office 2-3 days a week and do the rest from home. I can't complain....plus hanging out with the high schoolers every week is so awesome and such a passion of mine.
I'm excited to be part of the "blogging world" now! This is just a way for us to keep all of you updated on our life....it will be here if you are interested. That's it for our first blog...

Much Love,
The Andrews

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby! They are a company out of Sweden and they make the most awesome Baby bottles.

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
