I am currently enjoying a nice cup of coffee, smelling clean laundry,
sitting at home on this dreary day
with Brooke Fraser music playing in the background. 

It's been quite awhile since I've had the time to sit down without an agenda.
So time to catch up.

Sunday night I  completed my second semester of grad school.
Health Assessment and Pharmacology are finished. Check.
I had to complete a head to toe assessment video that's 30 minutes long on my lab partner for a pass/fail grade. Let's just say preparing for this was more nerve wracking than I expected. 
Ha, Andrew and I have some funny memories from my practicing that's for sure. 
 All that to say, I finished and passed. 
Pharmacology involved an accumulative final and I am just so thankful it is over.

I have 2 weeks off and then I begin my summer classes.
Legal and Professional Behavior and Research. 
Sounds exciting right?

2 semesters down. 7 semester to go.

I can say I learned a lot this semester, and not just with school but about myself. I feel like this semester really challenged me as a person to dig deep and really work hard even when I feel like I couldn't do all that I was doing.

I'm so thankful for the support of my Parents, Andrew, and my friends.

So these two weeks off I will be working a lot and I'm thankful to have a break from school.

So what else have I been doing?

I took a few trips to the beach by myself and so enjoyed it.

My best friend Mary made a visit to Florida and I got to spend an evening with her and we had a sleepover.

I've made weekly trips to target , what girl doesn't?

Andrew and I went on a double date with our good friends Natalee and Chase and enjoyed an evening out. Spontaneous but perfect.





Life is hectic no doubt with crazy schedules constantly coming and going.
Thankful this season is temporary but finding joy in the midst of it all.


On a more personal note, I  have two situations among people I care about that have been really tough.
Without sharing many details I can honestly say that I feel like my prayer list is huge, my heart is heavy for these people, but I am believing in the Faithfulness of my God to come through as He feels best in both situations.

It's hard to feel helpless but I am fervently praying for both situations and will continue to support the best I can and trust God with the rest.

I am thankful for this time to just be still.

I'll be writing again soon I'm sure with more details of what's been on my heart and mind.
