I just posted that I would keep you updated on Jon's law paperwork, but I didn't realize that I would have something to talk about so soon!
Well, last night we checked the mail, and there it was...Jon's certificate that says that he has officially been accepted to the Arizona State Bar! That means the is officially an attorney!
We not longer have to qualify it with "well, he's still waiting for his paperwork, so he's not an attorney quite yet..." because he is official!
I am married to a full fledged attorney! Holy Cow!
Our entire lives together have been in anticipation of this. When we started dating, Jon was just starting to get his acceptance letters back from different law schools and he was trying to figure out which one to attend. While we were dating he (well, we...) decided to go to ASU and he began to prepare to go. We got married and two days later he started his first day of law school. Three years later he graduated (with honors), and began to study for the Bar Exam. A few months later he found out he had passed. Then we waited for his Character and Fitness paperwork to go through. We got a letter to tell us that he passed that, and we turned in his Oath of Office paperwork....and we waited again.
But now, here we are almost exactly four years later (since we began dating and the law school process) and we have reached the goal!
I could not be more proud of my husband. I know that you probably get sick of hearing me say that, but he has gone through so much to accomplish this. It has been so hard on him, it has been really frustrating for him, it has been stressful and exhausting - and now he can breath a sigh of relief because he is finally Jon H. Saline, esq.
Now he just needs to figure out where he wants to work and what he wants to do with this new title!
And so another chapter in our story begins!!
