life as it is now

Life today is good. Great, actually. I am enjoying the simple things in life: friends, family, and of course, food.

I was able to spend the 4th of July with my sister Anne and my dear friend Corinne and her baby Lily. It was Lily's first birthday yesterday and I'm glad I got to celebrate with her! We went to the parade, the park, had lunch and then later that night watched fireworks and had sparklers. I'm so grateful to have such wonderful people in my life who make each day a new adventure!

Right now I'm going through a period of change. Pretty much everyone and everything in my life is different than it has been before. I miss my old friends and I miss my old home. I miss my old life...


I don't remember the last time I woke up in the morning and didn't feel like I wanted to die, either from being hungover or because I really didn't have anything for me. Now I wake up in the morning refreshed and excited to see what the day has to offer me.  I'm grateful for all the things I've learned in the...well, my entire life, but especially the last year or so.

With all the changes in my life that are taking place, I find myself single and flying solo, once again. I miss Jordan and hope she's well. Life is funny like that...but I think that's just how it goes. My life is going in a totally different direction that it was 2 months ago and I'm still shocked everyday by all the people in my life who are cheering for me. Thank you to everyone for all your support and understanding.

Oh, and I'm gonna make this today while I'm "crafting" with Enna. :] Wish me luck!
