Because You’re Fresh

Summertime come soon. Bring back with you the freshness of fruit, the colorful world and the juiciest life.

I love my fruits – and my citruses. Once you bite into them, it’s like a whole new, happy day is coming alive.

I’m finding my inspirations in the things that make each day fresh. Long live the colors of newness.

Another Year Comes and Goes

I know, I know. It’s the annual review-last-year-and-look-ahead post.

Well, yeah! It’s a new year, and I value looking back on the blessings and lessons of the past.

2013 was filled with abundant laughter, adventure, challenges and everything in between. I mean, I traveled throughout Europe – which still shocks me some days. I had a taste of the post-college, 40+ hour work week this summer, while working two jobs. I was taking six classes during fall semester and somehow ended up with the highest GPA of my college career (to brag a little). Of course there’s loneliness that comes with being in a new country, fatigue with the money, and lost hours with studying so it’s not all smiles along the way, but lessons were learned. Overall, I would say it was another blessed year.

Looking forward, 2014 has the potential to be fantastic and invigorating, but also scary. I graduate college this year. Leaving UW-Whitewater is necessary, but I have officially stepped over the “Get me out of college ASAP” phase and into the “What, I’m actually done? Now what?” phase. Honest like Abe, it’s terrifying. I’m starting the job hunt which excites me yet gives me the creeps. My options are open as far as cities and jobs positions, I could end up anywhere. This time next year I have no idea where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing, but that’s part of the fun – right? Yikes.

Folks, a new adventure is coming.
