My husband and I have been married for three years. And during that time we’ve never had the same days off or the same hours. I think it would be tough for a lot of couples but we’ve always had a great friendship and the understanding that sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

I’ve mentioned in previous posts that my husband works as a photographer at KWCH and we knew when I accepted the morning anchor position we wouldn’t see each other as much but this year he had the opportunity to move to mornings. Jazz hands! I could not be happier!

This switch also means he is off weekends; my husband has worked weekends for 12 years so sleeping in on a Saturday still feels weird to him. We took advantage of his new schedule by making a quick trip to Houston last weekend so I could attend my best friend’s baby shower.

I make trips back home often to see my family but Nick rarely gets the chance to go with me. In all honesty, I call him my imaginary man; some of my friends have met him once – at the wedding! The drive was long but the trip was a success now, let’s just hope now that my friends have the chance to get to know my husband they actually like him (kidding).

So, five weeks in and already my 2014 is off to a stellar start. How is your new year?
