I must say I have enjoyed 2 weeks off of school.
Monday mornings have not been slammed with a planner full of things to get done and homework assignments that I must tackle for the week.
I have thoroughly enjoyed 2 weeks off of school.

This morning I am enjoying a beautiful sunny day, coffee, and time with Andrew.

While he might be studying for school, I am thankful for my last day "off." 

I feel yet again that I am about to begin another new season.
Change is consistent in my life.
I'm not always the biggest fan of change but I am realizing more and more just how important change has been and all that good that has come from it.

This new season of being engaged has by far exceeded my expectations.
While I have some time before our big day arrives, I am enjoying the freedom to look at what I like, to dream about this day, and in every way I can just soak it all in.
I have found myself thinking about all that being a 'wife' will mean.
Now more than ever, it is my prayer that I will be all the Lord has called me to be and for my shortcomings that He will continue to refine me as I enter this new season.
 I cannot tell you how excited I am to get closer each day to spending forever with my best friend.

Ah grad school.
I still can't believe I finished my first year of grad school.
Time to kick it into the next gear.
My first clinical as a Nurse Practitioner student begins next week.
My nerves go crazy just thinking about it. 
I am looking forward to this experience and really digging into school this semester but I am nervous.
I have set one goal for myself since I started grad school after looking back on my undergraduate experience in Nursing school.
I don't want to look back and say I sat out or didn't try something I could have because I was scared.
I want to take every opportunity I am given and sink or swim, I want to give it my 100% so that coming out of school I will hopefully have more confidence in myself.
It is my prayer that the Lord would continue to remind me what He has called me to and that I will rest in the fact that He will equip me to do all that is ahead of me.
Your prayers in the next few weeks would be so appreciated.


Things today I am thankful for....
God has met every financial need I have had, just in time.
My parents who have done nothing but support me and are so excited for my upcoming wedding.
6 amazing girls who have said "yes" to standing beside me on my special day.
Sweet moments in a little coffee shop with Andrew. It's little moments like this that I'm grateful for in the midst of the chaos of our busy lives.
God's promise found in Isaiah 43

I hope you are having an incredible Monday!!!
