... and we meet again

My absence has all been due to school and transitioning into this new life. I love my school, and it just feels so good knowing that this is what I am supposed to be doing. Just in case you forgot I am in Cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell. I love all of my teachers and I do love the students I get to work with everyday. It is such a big transition in the ways I am allowed to express myself and my creativity (a bit overwhelming at first I would say.) As a psychology student who has written thousands of papers, you learn how to be creative in your writing but there is such structure and outlines of what your paper is supposed to be, and then switching to cosmetology school you are just kind of thrown out there and you are allowed to be as creative as you can be, and are encouraged to reach and think outside of the box and they want you to fail in a sense that you will learn. You almost have to fail to understand what you are doing, and that my friends is scary. Even so, I know in my heart of hearts that I am on the right path and that feels good, and it is becoming less overwhelming and natural everyday.

It is such a wonderful place to learn and I love what I am doing.

I also get to do dream jobs like this.

I get to work with such amazing and talented people, that inspire me. I get to work with individual people that do what they love and come together for a beautiful outcome. I'm a lucky girl.

My cup runneth over {hope floats}

"Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will." - Birdie Pruitt

Happy Halloween!

when will it be my turn to be a mommy? a kitty mommy that is.

tonight I opened our sliding door to check to see if it was too cold outside to eat dinner on our patio.
i left it open as I was talking to chase, and a kitty ran inside and i had to chase it down to put it outside.
that might have been the hardest thing i ever had to do (not really)
this kitty has been around our apartment before
and sometimes it meows really loudly
it breaks my kitty lovin heart

one day, i will be a kitty mommy.
you can bet your bottom dollar on it.

and no, it wasn't a kitty per se it was cat. i use the term kitty loosely.

Im 23

I had a wonderful birthday on the 5th.
My husband was gone on business 
so I spent the whole week with my mom
and grandmother.
It truly was wonderful.
For my birthday my sister, nieces, grandmother, and mom
went to lunch at the best burger joint.
It is called S&B burgers.
if you live in the metro area you MUST go. 

My husband got home on saturday
so he took me to dinner and cuppies and joe

I love cuppies and joe and my cute husband.
Here are a few videos that I love. They are just so beautiful and simple. I adore almost everything the creators behind the videos create. I urge you to go look at their blog, you can do that here, and if you want to look at all their little films you can do that here.
