I know, I know, It's been a while

I'm posting!! I know that each and every one of you have been anxiously awaiting a new blog post, so here is a little update on my life. I have the best intentions of doing this more often, but for now, just accept this new post with my apologies.

I'm going to be a student again! Unlike many of my friends growing up, school was my haven. Not a place I had to go, but a place I liked to go. I'm good at being a student, and I get to take my place in the classroom once again. For what, you ask? Nursing school!! I'm going to start my pre-reqs at Nashville State Community College this summer, finish them up in the Fall, then hopefully start nursing school at Belmont University in Spring 2012. I'll be doing the accelerated nursing program there, so I will graduate in Spring 2013. Crazy, but true!

Being back in the classroom will be quite a blessing. It's a place where I thrive and where I find my center. And learning about scienc-y things will be great, too! I'm excited and nervous about the prospect of trying to enter an over-saturated market (here in Nashville, for sure) in a bad economy, but I feel that this journey will help me help, and that's just what I want to do.

Sweet CeCe's is going well- Samantha (our General Manager) asked me to be her assistant, so I am going to be taking on a few more responsibilities, which will be nice. I adore the girls I work with and I have been so blessed to meet some fantastic people who are regular customers. On the days I most need it, I find encouragement and support from everyone around me on so many levels. Life is good.

I've also been blessed with a great Life Group from my congregation here in Nashville. It's a group made up from the Singles Focus class at Harpeth Hills, and they are fabulous! I'm so glad that Ashley found such a great church and that I decided to tag along with her when I got here.

I really don't have much else in the way of news. I feel like I've abandoned my dear blog for too long, though, and I really do want to change that. Keep checking in!

Be blessed. Love!
