Have you ever thought about where you are today and the choices that got you there, big or small? The other day Sean and I were driving and I saw a truck for a company that had made me a job offer while I was still in school and I mentioned it to him, which got me thinking. I had quite a few job offers at the end of college, my big dream was to move to Alaska but that job offer wasn't great and I was a little nervous about it. I got a call to interview for a job with Hunt Construction for the stadium project. I had really no interest in commercial construction and hadn't really focused there in school or internships but it was an amazing opportunity so I took the job and stayed in Oregon. A few weeks into the job I was out wandering through town and I came across a litter of labrador puppies and I bought one, I've always been an impulse shopper. The puppy got big and unruly and I needed help, so I took my vacation money that had accrued and took him to a really reputable kennel for some training. This is where I met my husband. I always tell people that I couldn't afford any more training so I had to marry the trainer!
When I think even farther back, to deciding on a college and what to major in, it's pretty incredible the little things that bring you to all the big ones.
Without that adorble little puppy that eventually became a big dog, I wouldn't have many of the things I do now: a wonderful husband, amazing daughter, beautiful home, not to mention very well behaved dogs.
