Full Blog Update!

Yes, you all know that I've graduated and spent a lovely weekend with my homies in Chicago... but what else have I been up to? I'm glad you asked!

I will say right off- the spiritual life aspect is still being pushed to the side. Intentionally, or unintentionally, I don't like it. I'm trying to use my time more affectively and carve out more room to read my bible or even just pray, but like anything, when you don't use your faith every day, you start to lose it.

I've been journaling more, and trying to take more family pictures... I'm just very used to being the person behind the camera.

We've got tickets to see the Brewers play in September, so that will be another item off of my list! I can't wait- we're going with my brother and his family. The last time my bro and I were at a Brewers game together was in 1990... and he got lost. We spent much of the time attempting to locate him- having a snack and coloring in the security office.

I am very happy to say that I wrote a letter to someone who changed my life, and it felt really good. Not only that, but the person I sent it to told me that it came at the right time and she was very thankful for it. I think everyone should do this- spread a little more gratitude and thankfulness around.

Oooo! We got a new digital camera. Because I dropped the other one on our tiled bathroom floor.

Things are coming along very nicely. I've completed a few things, and am well on my way to finishing others. It feels great!!

I am a college grad!... now when is my degree going to get here???

Hello happy followers!

 I am a college graduate, as of June 9th. I came, I learned, I walked. I may have tripped a little... I mean, no, that wasn't me. I was completely graceful and elegant. Along with graduating from college (goodbye, #29!) I also can cross #63 off- spending the weekend in Chicago with my boys! 
 It was a wonderful time- lots of sightseeing, eating good food, and enjoying a break from the real world. We also managed to be right on Michigan Ave as the Chicago naked bike ride went by... that was an interesting experience. The leader of the group? An elderly gent on roller blades wearing only a g-string.

Anyhow- here's a picture of me to cleanse your mental imager.
