Twenty Ten marks a big mile stone for me. I have been out of high school for ten years now - that's right I graduated June of 2000. Can that be possible? I have been out of high school for ten years now! Ten years ago if you were to ask me what I thought I would be doing now, I don't think any of this would have been in my mind!
Ten years ago I was dating my very first boyfriend (convinced of course that I was going to marry him) - you know beyond the junior high crushes. I was graduating high school one year ahead of my friends... I decided to do home school for the last three years of high school and plowed through my school work.
In August of 2000 my friend and I headed off to Calvary Chapel Bible College. I spent a semester there and then decided to attend Palomar Community College in San Marcos to get my early childhood development courses taken care of. Through a turn of events I moved to Romania for a season. That season in Romania allowed me to grow up and really experience some of the best times in my life! I returned from Romania a changed person. I worked at Maranatha Chapel Schools for a few years.
In May of 2004 I became paralyzed. During that season of my life I was completely confident that the God that I served had some great and wonderful plans for me. I spent a few months in a wheel chair not knowing what would become of me. Little did I know that the end of July I would purchase a home in Colville, Washington and in August be on the roof helping to re-roof my first home!
In December of 2004 I was given the opportunity to move to Spain and be a full time nanny. I jumped at the opportunity! In June of 2005 I found myself back in San Diego. I went to work for Maranatha Chapel. For a short season I was blessed to be a part of the Frostad family - a family that will forever be in my heart!
Little did I know that in January of 2006 Alycia would be a volleyball player for my future husband! June 15, 2006 would mark the very first date with my forever boyfriend, Michael Kulow. November 12, 2006 Michael and I vowed to stand next to each other through thick and thin! On April 15, 2007 Michael and I welcomed our first son into the family - Ezekiel Michael joined us three weeks early and has been keeping us busy ever since. July 28, 2008 Michael, Ezekiel and I moved to Colorado. A move that I was very much against however has proven to be the very best for us! On April 29, 2009 Michael and I got to meet our second son - Malachi Alan joined us and has made our family complete!
Ten years - a decade! Graduated from high school experienced so much that life had to offer and now am the happiest I have ever been. I am Michael's wife and Zeke and Ki's mom - life is good! Life sure has a way of taking some crazy turns and turning out exactly how God plans!
