family. It’s going to be different, but this change marks a new chapter in our lives.
The last few months have been pretty wild as Dr. Kassandra Gorena and I got into the groove of things. We experienced a lot of big changes in our life, including getting married, moving up to South Dakota, and starting our new jobs at Huron Smiles. Everyone in Huron has been so welcoming. We feel like part of the family, both at the office and in town. This has really helped our transition after moving almost 1,000 miles from our family in Texas. With the holidays coming up, it’s easy to feel a little homesick. Traditionally, our Thanksgiving celebration starts the night before. We usually have a
Another change we’re looking forward to is the weather. Dr. Gorena and I are both excited to experience our first real winter. We’re from South Texas, just five miles from the Texas-Mexico border, so it’s not exactly a winter wonderland down there.

I’m thankful I was able to take advantage of this opportunity, and I’m thankful for my amazing wife who was willing to make these big changes and join me on this adventure. This year has been full of big changes, and I believe the best is yet to come.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I hope you have plenty to be thankful for this year, too.
