I'm two years out from being a purple wildcat and still mastering the skill of managing life. Although grocery shopping is no longer a sense of anxiety for me, I'm still not a fan. Cooking something with those newly bought groceries, however, does cause anxiety....and usually several calls to my mom or sister.
I love my profession as a 7th grade Language Arts teacher (ask me that during the middle of a school year...) and have lately been filling my time with reading good books while laying pool side.
I currently reside at the self-proclaimed "Bachelorette Pad" (BP), and no, not like the TV show...at all. Just a fun place with fun girls that help me learn how to live life. And if you know me at all, you know I don't deal well with change, which makes me very thankful to serve a God who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)
Here's a glimpse of things I've been up to this summer:
(Have I mentioned as a teacher I haven't had to work since May 26th?)
I had the wonderful privilege of being "The Nanny" for girls of some good friends of mine! This took me down to Gulf Shores, AL for five weeks. I've come back with a greater appreciation for all the moms out there.

|Yes, we still take pics by the signs|

I've also had some good time with this handsome, little guy!
