I decided to merge two of the years together. Thus the series of these blog posts became one shorter.
Have you ever heard the phrase "I think they punted that one"? It's kind of like "mailing it in." In 2001 and 2002 went from living in Charleston to living in Atlanta (for the first time) then Tennessee and then Mullins, SC. Things in those second and third years were a bit hectic.
I had graduated college but Anita was finishing up. I was working two jobs in Charleston and my main job in Georgetown. No, that isn't close to Charleston; but I digress. We were as my good friend Clint Nowery would say, "Ballin on a budget." So it's no surprise that we actually got our 2001 ornament from one of the only stores we went to with any frequency. This beautiful Insert Your Own Picture ornament came from none other than OLD NAVY. It's corny and silly but it does remind us of the humble beginnings we came from. Wait, came from? Well, one day I'm sure we'll be able to say that.
In 2002 we flat out punted it. We had no idea what to do for our ornament. Looking back we should have gotten something to represent the state of Georgia since we were there for the majority of that year. At any rate, we just went and got an ornament with the year on it so we'd remember. I still can't believe we did all that moving around. I don't know how we would have made it without our family.
